RQOTD - Weekend Edition

Have you started Christmas shopping yet? :santasmiley: If not, when will you start?

Actually yes I have. I got a few things at after Christmas sales that I put away for this year.

I actually have. I have a bunch of stuff stuffed in my closet already for DS's birthday and Christmas (most of it clearance and outlet mall finds). I even bought a couple of small cheap items for Zoe (shhh, name is still a secret everywhere else!) on clearance so she'll have something on Christmas too. My goal is to be done before Halloween so I don't have any worries and can just relax. I even want everything wrapped up by then! Parent and sibling gifts will be done via Amazon. lol

I purchased 1 gift the other day, for our niece. I love to find things on clearance throughout the year so I like to start early.

I also start early. Actually, July seems to be the month I really start my shopping. Last year I was done early which allowed time to sort through gifts and wrap them well before I needed to...it was great. My only problem is running out of room to hide/store the gifts. I stopped at D-land today for gifts for DH and I got home and am having trouble finding a place to hide them!

Yes, I like to shop clearance and outlets and have done plenty of gifts with re-purposed garage sale finds over the years. I often do baskets for friends with little things - and if I have a theme in mind then garage sales can be great places to find stuff. I have a cupboard in the basement that I stash stuff in...dh knows not to look in there and the kids aren't allowed in the basement.

Cali- I stash stuff in my desk at work all the time!
