So for those of you who celebrate Christmas, do you start buying presents early? Last year we didn't buy much for our youngest child because she was only a year old and really didn't understand the concept of opening presents. Usually I wait until the last minute to buy Christmas presents, but with 3 kids to buy for it's going to be sort of expensive. I'm thinking of focusing on one child every month until Christmas and I'm hoping that will soften the blow to our checkbook! LOL! Of course I would have to start shopping this month and I'm so not ready. Ugh! LOL!

I start early & buy things but with 5 I really need to or I would never get done last minute.

I also hate the holiday crowds so I try to get done before the shopping gets crazy!

Every year I say I am going to shop early, but it doesn't usually happen. As you can guess, Christmas is expensive in our house. I am going to try and start shopping for other family members besides the kids now. I don't like to buy the kids stuff early because I worry that they'll find the gifts.
