Christmas Bags

I had better do this now, before I forget to...

I start Christmas shopping on December 26th. From that point on, it's on! Until Christmas of the next year.

I do this because there are wonderful sales to be had and my Christmas list of immediate family only is 23 people long (including both my side and hubby's). It just makes my life a little easier.

So, what I do is, as I buy things for gifts, I separate who gets what into bags and set them all together on my closet floor. I mark the bags by who's gift is inside, and I start a spreadsheet of who I bought what for and how much I paid. This way, I know when I've reached my budget for them. You should see it, I have about 18 bags sitting in a pile waiting for their contents to be wrapped.

Now...I just gotta buy wrapping paper!
