Did you stock up in the January sales or recent toy sales? What have you bought so far? I’ve started on presents and have a few so far, I have 3 kids to buy for so many more to go which is why I start about June/July.

  • My little bundle of joy will be around 6 weeks old when Christmas arrives, I CANNOT WAIT!

  • I used to stock up with toy sales but I don’t anymore as I don’t think there are real bargains. It’s all a crock now days.

  • It is Christmas and birthday shopping every single day of the year for me. Best thing to do is to look for sale items every single time you go shopping. Stash them away and when you need a gift, pull them out and see what you have. I would usually note down what I have bought and categorise them into gender and age appropriate gift. As long as you don’t buy ‘the in thing’ or ‘licensed merchandise’ you would be pretty safe in gifting the gift some 3 to 6 months down the track.

  • I have. Only have the adults (partner and my parents) to buy for, but yes, I got all the kid bits at the sales since Christmas. Best way to save some $$.
