Am I crazy... or just organised?

I know it's only March, but I have started Christmas shopping. I actually started this last month which wasn't very long after last Christmas. See, the thing is, I like to be organised in every way possible and I always try to think of things in advance. This year even more so than normal. You see, I finish university in May, have just found out I can't transfer my job and I'm getting married in Florida in September which is not fully paid off. Although my fiancĂ© has a pretty good job, we still have bills and wedding things to pay for as well as normal, general living expenses so things are going to be quite tight until I get another job. 

Even though I have only just found out about my job, I have been thinking that's what would happen for quite some time now. Because of this, I realised that Christmas and Birthdays were going to be a struggle over the course of the year. I have been buying one or two Christmas presents every month and will hopefully manage to do the same until I leave Nottingham and move back home. I know this won't make a massive dent in the presents that need buying but it will take some of the pressure off at least. 

Does anyone else plan as far in advance as I do? Or are you a last minute shopper? 

I think I need one of these:

  1. Yes I buy Christmas and birthday presents as and when I spot things, throughout the year. That way I reckon I end up with nicer presents to give to people and the cost is managed because it is often possible to get things in sales.
