It seems like I have been out every day this week, making the week go by pretty quick.
I have about half of my Christmas shopping done. I have to get 2 more things for my son and about a half a dozen things for my daughter. I know where to get the last things on my daughters Santa list. I thought it was going to be a real chore trying to get something for them this year but luckily they have both given me plenty of idea's. I try to have all my shopping done by the end of November. I am sure I could save a bit of money if I waited to shop closer to Christmas but I don't care what I save the chance of maybe not getting something they want isn't worth it.
I have a budget each Christmas and for the most part I stick to it. I leave things for myself and hubby to last. I only have to get something for my Mom after that. I buy for one other person and that is my sister in laws daughter. But I usually get that at the last minute. My best friend and I swap gifts for each of our two kids. That way our kids get what they want.
I have to start cleaning up the house so that in early December I can do my decorating.
Update on my Baking day. I have 6 brownies left and 5 cookies. Not bad they lasted longer then I thought, lol.
When do you start decorating for Christmas? Have you started you Shopping yet?
