One of my coworkers starts Christmas shopping in January. He buys 1 or 2 gifts each time he gets paid to spread out the expense.
I'd prefer that too over doing it all at once. I don't have a large extended family though and I limit my gifts to only my parents, kids, husband and sister and I try to spread it throughout the year.

I totally agree! There never has been a war on Christmas and it really does add tension to the season.

I would be inclined to agree - it's a free for all for retailers and puts so much pressure on people to consume stuff they don't need.

I'm an Amazon prime member so I do this too. I'd rather take a beating than go to a mall lol. I also will sometimes shop immediately after the holiday season to get things like paper, craft supplies etc on clearance for the next year :).
Ugh I hate that too, and it's like Thanksgiving barely gets a mention since we go from Halloween to Christmas
