    So did you buy any gifts for gift giving next year? I know someone who has 2 gifts bought and wrapped for next Christmas. He admitted he bought one for this year last year and couldn't remember what it was.....LOL

    Your opinion of this sort of preparation?

    I think there are 12-step programs for people like that. Or maybe meds.

    OK, I'm a little jealous. If I were able to think that far ahead and buy a gift a year in advance, then I'm quite certain I would stumble over it all year and curse myself for invitng clutter. Then I would forget that I bought the gift and find it several years later.

    No, but I always start getting my ideas for gifts ready now, and I'll pry start buying stuff towards the begining of summer.

    It was amazing being done shopping before Thanksgiving hit.

    I bought a couple of I-tune gift cards earlier in the year and couldn't find them when I was wrapping presents. If those two dogs of mine got ahold of them and munched them for a snack, I'm going to make a wallet and a pair of slippers out of them! So far, no "evidence" of wrong doing on their part in the backyard. It must be me. I lose the car when I park it in a parking lot and apparently I lose gifts when I buy them early!
