    Who has started their 2014 Christmas shopping?

    Shopping is always expensive and time consuming. I like to start early and buy a little bit at a time. This way the cost is less painful! So far I have 2 gifts - a learning toy for my grand-niece and a board game for one of my daughters (one of her gifts). How about you?

    I used to start shopping in August! The last few years I've been way behind, trying to do it all in a hurry. But I love taking time, spending hours looking for those perfect gifts that just jump out at you. So no, I'm not started yet, but hopefully within a week or so.

    Just a Christmas puzzle, 500 pcs, waiting for it by the end of next week. Nothing else, yet..
    I have to say, it really ''helps'' the weather here, for not getting into the mood for Christmas shopping or anything related to Christmas, as, weather is moslty sunny with temps around 30c... :(

    I actually wrapped the 3 gifts I've purchased. And I've decided that I have so much wrapping paper left from last year that I won't need to purchase any!

    I have 5 gifts purchased and three more on order. I hope to be done with all shopping and wrapping by early November. Then I'll go out to buy stuffers in December, so I can then sit at the mall and feel the hustle and bustle of the season without having to fight the lines. I don't do well in crowds anymore - so this strategy works best for me!
