I have officially started! I usually get an LTD catalog and received a fall issue awhile ago. Anyhow, about 4-5 nights ago I went to the website and they were showing their Christmas issue. After browsing around and checking out what they have this year..I made a $200.00 order. Now I can't wait to receive my "stuff".

You guys are great! My birthday is at the end of September and I won't start shopping until after that.

I am still deciding on what to get my husband this year, too... I think he's going to get a PS3.

I buy gifts year round. By now my gift drawers are pretty stuffed actually. Most of the gifts are for nieces, nephews, etc. For my immediate family, I have learned to hold off shopping until Dec. because they change their minds too often! Now, wrapping is another issue...I'm kind of lazy that way!

I've been shopping all year. I buy for two people each month. That way I'm not stressed in December.

Annette, I haven't rec'd mine in the mail yet either, but my neighbor said she got hers awhile ago & has already rec'd her 1st order out of it!! Hmmmmm... Normally it comes in July! What a bummer!!! I know I can look online, but I like having the book right infront of me! Lol!!

I normally save most of my shopping for "the season" I love to shop when the Christmas music is playing in the stores, it's chilly outside & that Christmas feeling is in the air! I love all the hustle bustle (early in the season....not shortly before when people are rude! Lol) So my answer is no...I haven't bought any gifts yet!
