I shop all year round.  It's easier for me when I see sales or see something I really really want, I can just buy it, and it doesn't hurt so bad when I get the bills in, plus I think I can spend more because I spread it out over time.

hubby on the other hand, he shops around 20 Dec..

My mom started shopping this month already.
I'm going to start in a month or so.

I start pretty early!
I start thinking about it in August and might pick up one or two things
but October and November are when I get more serious
But can I say that your bags are AMAZING.
I think I will have to purchase one of them, but which to choose?!
I love internet shopping, I just hate the postage to Australia.

Let's stick to regular Monopoly. The game is crazy enough as it is; how can an iron be a landlord?

Wow! Thank you so much everyone for all your input, it really helps.
Emmaline- thanks! I know what you are saying about international shipping.  We are trying to find a way to make it cheaper, for now we use usps, much cheaper than UPS for international shipping. Thanks again everyone for all your comments!

in such a commercialized holiday such as christmas, you almost need to get alot of the word out about your shop by Thanksgiving time. That's when I see more and more Christmas themed things up for sale and everyone starts talking about the holiday season. I think probably starting very soon, in early october, you should start speading the word. but don't really really push it until november... mid november at the latest really.

*sigh* so is life, i've often said

I attempt to pick up things throughout the year (especially little stocking-stuffers), but honestly... I'd say I begin casual shopping in October, serious shopping in late November, and OMG I NEED TO BUY SOMETHING FOR... in mid-December.

So much inspiration, so little time

I've already started shopping for my boyfriend   Shocked

but most people I shop in November for.  I want to get it out of the way earlier this year since I'm going on a vacation in december, and school is gonna get super busy for me in oct/nov... but i'll probably leave it til the last minute!

Good question. I personally don't shop until December, but I've already planned the holiday sale at my shop to be November 4th since I know that there are people who begin shopping this early. Crazy!
