I was just curious if anyone else tries to do birthday or Christmas shopping SUPER early? My daughter's birthday is in October and obviously Christmas is just 2 months after that.
Between birthday parties, presents, and holidays, that time can get VERY expensive. I try to pick things up a little at a time when I can with extra money I might have, usually starting in August for both birthday and Christmas presents for my daughter.
Just curious how those families with multiple children do it? Any tips on good times to buy? Is there a certain amount of money you limit for each child? Or do you buy a certain number of gifts for each child?
My daughter is dying for an American Girl Doll, which will cost about $150 without shipping. She is going to be 8 years old this October and I'm seriously considering buying it for her as her "big/expensive" Christmas present. I just hope she is responsible enough for a doll that expensive. It just worries me a little.
Any advice or tips or comments, would be greatly appreciated!
