    Have you started your Christmas shopping?

    yeah that's right, I used the C word, wanna fight about it!?

    I've just started buying presents properly now, I know some people who have already finished theirs and wrapped it all up!

    have any of you started this wallet offending task?

    Haha of course I haven't. That starts no sooner than December 20th.

    Typically my friend and I go shopping. Which actually turns into us getting high and usually getting a meal and then panic buying presents in about 45 minutes before the shops shut. That's been our tradition for the last 4 years

    Waiting for Black Friday on Amazon. Done shopping though, everything is in my cart. Waiting to see if any deals get added to them. If not, oh well.

    YES!!!

    I start Christmas shopping months before hand because I love it so much and I have time to find truly killer presents.

    My brothers into music and is a HS history teacher so I got him a Script / CD of the Stage/Musical 'Paris: A Story Of Love' which is the story that leads upto the Greek battle of Troy.
    Found it for $15 in a second hand store.

    Christmas is actually not far away now... hard to believe. Feels like previous Christmas was just yesterday.
    But no, haven't started shopping yet.

    Not shopping this year. I have no holiday spirit left in me and I'm sick of being stressed out by the fact that if I were to go shopping, no one would truly appreciate anything I've bought for them. Besides, I'm sick of being poor and screwing myself over just to satisfy society's glut for the season of buying crap that would never last longer than a fiscal quarter anyway. This year and every year hereto after, I'm worrying about me and only me. Being nice never got me anywhere.

    Sorry to ruin anyone's holiday spirit but I'm done with all of this.

    I always do it online now, christmas crowds stress me out and it can be cheaper online too. I spent way too much last year so I'm getting near enough all the presents from the 5-10 stocking filler sections online

    Everything costs something. Nothing is free. If it involves my time, then it isn't free.

    I have to admit I get off easy.

    I honestly despise shopping and crowds so my wife (she's a pro shopper) does it all.

    All I have to do is buy her a few things and pick out a couple video games for my child.

    But yes, we are almost done, most of it was done through Amazon.

    I'm basically done, just need a few more things. I'm debating if I want to waste time wrapping, might just hand them out when everyone is present

    Have you started your Christmas shopping?

    Oh man wrapping is the worst. I've got better with the years, but I'm glad I only have to wrap a couple of gifts. I wouldn't hand out gifts unwrapped though.

    Wrapping is easy and free, I use old news paper. Depending on the person they might get the sexy girl pages.

    I find it relaxing. Maybe I'm weird.

    I get my christmas shopping done by early November. Just to give myself a buffer if something goes wrong.
