I'm going to be starting my christmas shopping this month because Wal-Mart is having their christmas layaway from now until dec. so that gives me 4 months to pay for it all.....

I usually start before now but as the kids are getting older it is harder to store the presents where they won't find them. But I should start soon.

I start whenever I see an item on sale or clearance, so basically all year! I have nieces and nephews I buy for too, so I'm constantly on the lookout for things. We have a travel trailer, so I usually keep stuff in there away from prying eyes! I have turned the heat on in there and wrapped with the doors locked...safe from any 'accidental seeings'!

I actually just started the other day picking up things as I see them on sale or things I think my kids will like. My two older kids have early December birthdays, plus DH is early December too, so it is an expensive month for us!

I started in July. Our local Target had a lay away until Christmas sale in July, so I put some stuff away then. Sad thing was, I got there when the sale had been on for about 3 days & over 1/2 of the stuff that I wanted was no longer available
I will start getting the rest of their stuff over the next few months

I'm already watching, but I have four birthdays to contend with before then.

I just started. I probably won't be done until right before Christmas because I'm lazy, lol.

I've already started and next year I will have to start sooner because Walmart is going to quit doing layaways after Chritmas. That really puts a damper on my budget.

I start holiday shopping in late November, but usually have it finished by mid December.
