    When do you officially begin your Christmas Shopping?  And when are you usually done?

    I like to go to clearance sales in January to get all the Christmas items on clearance.  I also buy Christmas gifts starting in January.  By October I am usually done.  How about you?

    Under normal circumstances my aim has always been/would be to begin in September and finish up "loose ends" during November.  I have not lived in "normal circumstances" for quite some time now; but my reply here reflects the "normal-circumstances" (real) me - not the "not-normal-circumstances me".

    (Back to the "under normal circumstances" thing:  I don't want to live for Christmas, beginning the day after Christmas.  Aside from other issues, I don't want to (can't) store gifts for a year.  Neither am I one to wait until December to start shopping.  Of course, these days I don't happen to have to worry about "the Santa thing" because my own children are all grown and no longer even living with me.  Waiting until early December is not/wouldn't be the giant potential disaster that it was when my kids were little.

      True, my kids are no longer living with me as well, but by getting things through-out the year I am better able to get things the person would like.  In other words, if I am strapped for money or time I won't have to settle for something.

    I usually start buying from October, and I'm always done before December. Can't stand going to the mall during December, it's way too stressful.

    You seem very efficient though!

      Like you, I hate going to the mall during December.  Thanks for the compliment.
