I'm already looking for shopping deals online and in the Sunday paper inserts. I already have an idea on what to get the kids for Christmas. Believe me, my kids, especially my four-year old lets me know what toy he wants. As usual, my answer is always "Ok, we'll have to save money first." This Christmas, I will be spending the same amount for gifts. I don't spend much each year anyway, so there will not be any changes this year. Back to shopping, I already signed up for email alerts for online websites I frequent. You can always find the best buy this way. I have one email address that I use for such, this also cuts the SPAM I get in my personal email address. Last year, I bought the first Christmas gift in September. I know, it was early but I knew that come Holidays, the demand for the Nintendo Wii will be great. I was right, people were lining up and sometimes coming out empty handed because the stores cannot keep up with the demand. That is why I prefer to do my shopping early. I don't like the stress that comes with Holiday shopping. How about you? When do you start your Holiday shopping?
