I have my children's presents wrapped and stashed away in the attic. I've bought things they have asked for, or that I know they will like.

However I keep getting tempted by other things...Black Friday deals aren't helping!!

i need to ban myself from buying!!

Ohhhh, you're twitching wink
Well I haven't started my shopping yet so I'm not suffering from this cruel condition grin

Top tip - don't start so early!

I've finished barring one present and everything is wrapped but I don't think i'm tempted to buy more. I'm holding firm right now at least

I am nowhere near. I have bought a couple of things (household) and some make-up for DD.

I don't want to 'peak' too early, I do enjoy Christmas shopping. DH and I book a day off in late Nov to buy the bulk of it.

I am still on the lookout for my Christmas jumper (and now it's cold enough to wear one I reckon fgrin )

I am planning a shopping trip (without DC ) on Friday but I reckon it;ll be busy (Black Friday)

Taking DD and her mate out this weekend . They'll be in all the clothes shops no doubt smile

I need to look out for the TV Times.
Plan a cinema trip.( I think Christmas with the Coopers)
Get my haircut.

It'll all come together.

Then I can Twitch fgrin

Finished, wrapped and stashed a few days ago.

Now thinking I should get more. DH won't hear of it - we've spent enough - and I know he's right. I just think ... more... and see things they'd like, or wonder if they'll be disappointed. Which I know they won't be but still.

Yup, definitely twitching 😄🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁

Benefit of doing it early - no crowds. DH hates crowds, hates Christmas shopping in general. Last week of November, during the week, blissfully quiet and much more fun. And he doesn't complain nearly so much about the amount I put in the trolley 😄

I am twitching like a twitchy thing that has had a mild electric shock I am that twitchy, this has been a tough and sometimes skint year, but things are picking up and I want to splurge on all the things we have had to go without this last year or so. I actually hate shopping (the crowds) but have done the bulk online and then pick things up as I bimble around town - I never go out to do a 'big' Christmas shop. I should be done, but I know I am not, silly me really.

I keep thinking i'm all done, then remember something I've forgotten! just need 2 pairs of trousers for ds1 and selection boxes and them i'm done for the kids.
then I just need to do the dog, the hubby, parents, inlaws, siblings, and at some point sort out the Christmas cards. all this on top of being 37 weeks pregnant! And if I get that itch to buy anymore...... dd and ds2 are jan birthdays and ds1 a feb birthday so need to thinking what to get for them. oh it doesn't end this time of year.

Iv finished the present shopping, all wrapping done apart from a few gifts that are due to be delivered. Nothing else to buy...however,I'm going to the local German Christmas market tomorrow and I'm twitching like crazy. Not sure how much more my bank card can take wink

Black Friday is giving me the twitches!!!

I have 1 thing to get, and a kettle - DH says that's it angry

DrasticAction Thu 26-Nov-15 12:51:04

YEP twitching here.

Mostly all done but the deals are tempting...and you only live once, and the dc are only little once!

But no, am reigning myself in.

TheFairyCaravan Thu 26-Nov-15 12:56:16

I'm twitching like hell atm.

I'm stuck in bed today and keep putting stuff in baskets at various online shops, not checked out yet but I can't see that lasting much longer!

JacobFryesTopHatLackey Thu 26-Nov-15 13:11:23

The DSes presents are all sorted but I'm feeling the twitch too. All the black Friday emails are not helping.

NewLife4Me Thu 26-Nov-15 13:13:51

I have finished albeit for dh pressies.

I have wrapped and hidden away but most days I manage to buy something else. It's terrible, like scratching a never ending itch. grin

fuzzpig Thu 26-Nov-15 14:59:11

I've not even finished the proper shopping and I'm twitching already confused

fuzzpig Thu 26-Nov-15 16:14:51

The Book People has a lot to answer for. Every year I promise myself I won't go on there. Every single year. blush

NeverNic Thu 26-Nov-15 19:20:43

I'm reverse twitching - regretting some of my earlier purchases

NeverNic Thu 26-Nov-15 19:26:07

Sorry fat fingers! I'm beginning to take some stuff back. The guilt is settling in and Ive realised we do not have the space for everything. I've also bought new lights and decorations to add to my groaning credit card. (Which I do pay off in full - I just don't like the guilt to restrict my spending urges!)

That said I'm now focusing my spending on outfits and food...

ClashCityRocker Thu 26-Nov-15 19:45:50

Yup, it seems every groupon/living social etc email has the perfect present for my dh or family.

I've done most of it online but have a few bits to get so I can have a festive shopping day and mooch around the christmas always sounds so much nicer in my head, when bitter experience has taught me it will just be crowds, chaos and overpriced tut!

KinkyDorito Thu 26-Nov-15 20:46:45

Twitched at the start of the week and spent £££ more. Sigh.
Twitching right now - bloody sales deals.
It's not even December. I'm hopeless.
