How far along are you in your shopping?


Recommended Posts

Just curious... How far along is everyone with their shopping?


I get strange looks from people when they hear that I have made a pretty good dent in my shopping list... I do plan to be ALL done by Black Friday. That's my goal anyway. I have 3-4 more gifts to buy for my extended family, and then I can really consentrate on DH and my boys. I have gotten some shopping done for them as well, but I am far from finished. I know what I am buying, I just have to get the money together to do it. :)


How about you?

I have my children (DS 15 and DD 9) just about done.


My twin nieces are done (age 6)- thanks to Target's toy clearance.


My nephew still hasn't told me what he wants (age 10). He isn't into much of anything so I will wait till I hear from him. Other wise he is getting money.


Done with my parents.


Still have to buy for my MIL. I'm thinking glade basket and a gift card.


Teachers- done (each are getting a glade variety lol)


Husband- DONE.


Dogs DONE.

I am 85% done. For those I haven't bought for yet, I know what I'm getting them, just haven't gotten it yet. I went out over lunch today and bought everyone's stocking stuffers. I'm holding onto all of my receipts, though, just in case something goes on sale!!

Not nearly far enough :D I've bought 12 gift cards for my husbands employees, and his parents. I've got four children to buy for. So far I have a couple of wii games, a my generations doll for my youngest dd, a pet shop center for oldest dd, and a movie for my youngest ds. This is very unusual for me, still plenty of time though

I am probably about 75% done. Some people are just impossible to shop for. Have to sit down and think about it. Also need to decide if I am going to continue to buy for the people who refuse to by for anyone else, but will get pissy if they don't get anything. I don't want to, but I don't want to waste money one someone who will not appreciate whatever I get them either.
