Shopping for 2012
I have already started to put things away for the coming Christmas. I love those after Christmas sales!!!
Also bought all the wrapping paper, ribbons and bows and the cards.
I want to get busy early this year with buying the things for the advent calendars.

Anyone else buying stuff already to put away?

I have only bought some gift bags and that's it. I actually have plenty of Christmas wrapping paper and I don't need anymore Christmas decorations but it's so tempting! :!!

I will not buy any presents yet because I like to wait until closer to Christmas to see exactly what they all want at that time. I don't have a whole lot of people to buy for so it's easy to wait until fall to shop.

I found a couple of sets of body wash for $1.50 that I bought to put back for my sisters next year. Each one has 6 small bottles in it. I also found a colgate set that had a battery powered toothbrush and a small tube of toothpaste for $1.24. I bought one of those for each of my niece's and nephew. They will probably end up in their easter baskets though.

I am stoked! My wife went today and bought some Christmas gifts for next year today! Not a lot, but she talked about doing some every couple of months. This really excites me as she usually waits until September before she starts getting really excited.

I've picked up some odds and ends (mostly wrapping paper and some decorations THAT I DO NOT NEED, lol!)... I can't resist a Christmas clearance. I've been avoiding Target b/c I know I'll buy things I don't need!

Every year I tell myself I'm going to buy some decorations cheap after Christmas. Every year I'm broke after Christmas and I never buy anything. It will probably be September or October before I start shopping.

I bought a few things from Yankee Candle. I usually start buying in May/June with a few things here or there and really start in August/September
