Have you started shopping for Christmas yet? If not, when do you plan to?
I have not started shopping for Christmas. My husband and I don't exchange gifts other than PJs on Christmas Eve, so not worried about him. Aiden will get stuff off of his birthday wish list, so he's easy. The only other people I ever buy gifts for are our parents and my grandmother. No idea what we're going to do for them other than I'll probably get them all copies of Aiden's first year photo book when I finish that. Everyone else just gets a Christmas card, and I'll probably do a photo card again this year.
ugh, we used to have like 20 people to buy for, but we cut it back a little last year and i hope we do the same this year. Instead of buying for all the adults on DH's side last year we just bought for the kids, but SIL made us all homemade treats. I think that is a good idea instead. Normally I start shopping in Sept/Oct because of all the people but this year I am going to wait until I go back to work and get proper paychecks again so I will say end of Oct early nov i will start this year.
No, but I am thinking about it only becuase of the cash! I usually only buy for about 6 people on my moms side, but we always buy for everyone on my dh side.. I feel obligated to buy them really nice things since they do the same, and I Hate it.. We dont have the money to spend like that. They usually do the saving programs throughout the year so they do huge Christmas!! .. Im more for the the family time and the thought.. I am still looking for a part time job, so hopefully I will get one and be able to save some money for that..

No Christmas shoppping here yet. But I've been thinking about it! We LOVE Christmas sooooo much! I cant wait for this year's when Simon will be more aware and interactive instead of just lying there watching me open his gifts!! He's going to get spoiled!!!
I'll probably start in October after back to work as well when I have real money!
Nope. I usually start in November and get it all done (as best I can) before December. I have DS1's birthday to think about at Christmas now too. We don't do anything Christmasy until a week after his birthday.But MAN I LOVE Christmas And he's really interested in it this year too. He's already asking me about Santa I'm really excited

It's not 2 weeks before Christmas, so no, not started yet.
DH and I take a Friday and Saturday and go stay down in St. Louis and try to do all of our Christmas shopping those two days and we do pretty good. LOL!
I do keep a list hidden here in the house of ideas I have throughout the year for presents for people.
