Holiday Crazy "Plan ALL year long"
PLAN, PLAN, PLAN....... and then PLAN some more!! Yes, this is you. You start planning pretty much right after the New Year( realistically right after Christmas). You know that you want to shop the sales all year long, and you now what sells really work for you. We all know that the sales come with the major holidays but I really like to find a 'deal' site. I like using Pinching Your Pennies. They give you deals all the time, online and off. Sign up for their screaming penny and then you don't have to even search for the deals. They come right to your e-mail. Find the website that works best for you and enjoy knowing you will soon be done shopping. Well to help keep things a little more controlled through the whole year I suggest you make a list for those you are buying for. List their name, age, interestes, and list a clothing size larger(possibly two sizes) then they are right now. Then go out and purchase a large tote with lid!! That is your christmas box. The paper will stay in the box and as you purchase items you will write what you bought and for whom and LEAVE THE PAPER IN THE BOX!!!!! If the items are to large write where you stored it. Then the list and the items stay in one place and then you can find them when you need them and all the pieces are in one place. The next thing to do is to realise you are ahead of the game and to slow down. The holidays are never fun if you don't slow down when you decorate or put the tree up. It seems that we are always hurry put it up, hurry and open it, hurry take it down. Slow down and enjoy it this year see how it goes. Then if you find something just didn't work try something else. Here is an amazing site that has a lot of printables that you can print off. http://christmas.organizedhome.com/printable/christmas-countdown
