Christmas Shopping? Too early?

saintsarah

What are your thoughts on Christmas shopping timelines?

I'm usually the type to procrastinate .....a lot.....like Christmas Eve, a lot. 

In doing so, I end up in a massive panic because I'm in a race against time, crowds and limited selection of products. Who else is with me on this one?

This year, I've decided that I will begin MUCH earlier to allow myself enough time to really put thought into what I will be gifting and I've already noticed many reason why shopping earlier is better.

1. You know you will get what you have in mind
2. You can find super great deals
3. You save yourself an incredible amount of stress!! 

What are your thoughts & tips on Christmas shopping?!

Do it asap!

I think right now is the perfect time! Just a heads up - Costco is starting to get their Christmas stuff in already and once it's gone it's gone!
I plan on having all the big items out of the way soon!

Sooner is better

I hate shopping. Worst of it, I hate Christmas shopping. Not because I hate to give, just beacause I hate people. I hate the atmosphere in shopping centers. Honestly, my shopping has begun it hase already 2 months. I look for great deals on internet and shop a bit online. It's a good way to stay in your budget! Each time I need to go buy something, I took a quick look to other things that I know I will probably buy for Christmas.

make a list

I make a big list of everyone to shop for & what my budget is.
If I have any ideas in mind I jot those down too.
Lately I have been using Pinterest for more personal DIY presents and I always start early!
It is never too early to start!

I'm ahead this year

I have started now, because of labor day sales!

And black friday and cyber monday are always good days to get gifts!

The earlier the better... this way you can research and get the best deals without all that stress of walking around a shopping mall near Christmas time. (I hate that) Go for it! You'll feel so proud when all your shopping is done and everyone else is scrambling!

Start planning!

This is a great time to start organizing what you need! In about a month a lot of stores will introduce great gift sets and offer Friends & Family promotions!
