I wouldn't have started yet if it weren't for that darn LTD catalog! ;) Can't wait for the Christmas catalog to come out!

I have a perpetual Gift Closet.. or at least gifts in my closet :) So I am looking for any sales or reason to stock up on something that would work for gifts for family and friends.

I have brought a few bits and pieces for family gifts that I have seen in the sale and have gotten my daughter a few bits and pieces from my works 3 for 2 sale. Also gotten something for my son as well.

I agree with Nash though - I start buying now as my kids are 13 and 7 and they have both already made a guide Xmas list each so nearer to Christmas Im hoping I can check some of the things already off their lists

I will have the same problem this year. Last year I used my in laws caravan that was sat in there driveway to store my stuff in but this year I am having to make do with a cupboard in our bedroom which is also our junk cupboard. Needless to say I think I will have to start wrapping and hiding things away in bags in our room so little eyes dont see anything they shouldnt.

I feel for you Tis with regard to the storage. This was one main reason we had to move as we have two growing boys and our living space was too small. If it's just storage you are after though, have you thought about boarding out your loft? Toys nowadays are so big especially things like car tracks and tents and train sets!

Have fun coming up with ideas. How exciting!

I have bought a few gifts for babies and toddlers in the family because they love anything. I can't purchase for my kids too early because they change their minds at least 3 times between now and Christmas Eve.

Got a jump on my shopping during the Michigan game this past Saturday. Stocking Stuffers are now completely done. That's something that I don't usually get in the bag until after Thanksgiving!
