Every year is seems that I am behind the eight ball. I pledge to myself that this year I will enter the holiday season with a plan. I need to make a list!!! Here’s a start.
Cards – I need to clean up the list. One tip I have is to ask at the grocery store if they have Christmas stamps when I’m shopping. It saves me a trip to the post office. Winkflash has a sale on photo cards 60% off until 11/8. http://www.winkflash.com/
Gifts – I’d like to get as much shopping finished as early as possible. That way I can enjoy the season with my family.
Baking – I love to make cookies!! I buy pretty Christmas plates for them. I check for sales and try to get them for about a dollar each. Wrapped up with pretty bows they make great gifts.
Decorating – I need to evaluate what I actually use and get rid of what I don’t. In our house we don’t put anything out until after Thanksgiving. My husband hates “holiday jumping”.
Activities – Every year I like to plan some family time to do something fun. One of my favorite low-cost activities is to make some hot chocolate, put it in travel mugs and drive around looking at the lights.
What are you doing to get ready for the holidays??
