Have you begun your Christmas shopping yet?

I got some done by shopping at ltdcommodities.com (great for kids toys that are inexpensive and good quality)..otherwise thats it.    And whenever I get a head start I end up spending more it seems rather than less becuase I will find additional things to get the person.  

So how are you all doing on your shopping?  Or lack of?!

    I have not started but I was actually just thinking about what I was going to get everyone before I read your post. My family is really difficult to shop for.

    I have just begun scoping out the ads, however, I LOVE the Black Friday Rush and getting it ALL done that day!  Hopefully I can continue on my 3 year roll!

    I've only gotten one little gift for my friend, but I can't remember where I put it. I've looked everywhere. At least it was cheap.

    Why is everything so inexpensive...is it cheap quality?  I know you mentioned toys, but what about the rest of the stuff?

    Yup, I officially started yesterday.  Got DH part of his present and picked up some inexpensive reed diffusers at Target for the girls in my department.  Going to do some heavy-duty shopping tomorrow w/my BFF.  I'm planning on being done early this year and I'm super excited about that.  I definitely won't be tempted to go out again and again because I hate, hate, hate dealing with the shopping crowds!

    I haven't started - I have no idea what to get people this year, and no idea how we'll pay for it, either. 

    I usually start in October and have the bulk of it done by Thanksgiving! grrr

    I'd like to start this weekend, but my only issue with starting early is that the prices are so much better after Thanksgiving.  I guess we'll figure out what we're buying everyone and then see if it makes sense to wait or just get it done now.

    I've started already.  My favorite way to shop is to take a day off after Thanksgiving.  It's so civilized, with few people out, and you can hear the christmas carols.  It really gets me in the mood for Christmas!

    I have decided on gifts for a few family members.  I am getting the brothers with LOS tickets to a nearby zoo.  Fun and inexpensive.  I rather get them something to go and make some memories instead of something that is going to collect dust on a shelf.

    I'll be doing lots of online shopping this year.  I want to stay away from the crowd of germs.

    Everything seems great to me, its my first year shopping and I got an Elvis hooded sweatshirt for the MIL and it seems like good quality, it hasnt' been washed or anything but everything seems pretty solid to me.  I don't know why its so inexpensive but I'll take it!    I mentioned the site in another post and the one girl said she use to shop there and loved it and I have yet to hear anything bad.

    I"m pretty much done. We got 1 toy each for our boys and got them all second hand (ebay and craigslist).  I know they'll be thrilled.  Now its just some simple $1 toy stocking stuffers for later that we need to get.

    I started but now I just don't have the energy to shop. I asked DH what he wanted for Christmas and he told me a house. Sure honey I'll just wrap it up and put it under the tree.

    Did most of my family earlier this week. I just ran out and got my cleaning ladies a gift a little while ago. All I have left is my parents and DH. First time I have ever been this on the ball!

    I actually just started this morning.  I made a photo album on Shutterfly of wedding pictures (we just got married in June) to give to my parents and the In-Laws.  We don't buy too many gifts for other family members, we usually draw names or do a white elephant of some kind.
