Apparently I am on an ‘Organizing Kick’. Or, it could be my obsession with picmonkey is developing into an all out sickness.
Honestly, it is probably 50/50 at this point.
Either way, I digress. Moving on.
I created another new printable – The Christmas Gift Printable! (I am amazed at how I keep coming up with these witty names…) Besides, if CVS can have their Christmas display up in October, I can share my list.
Each year, Craig and I run into a problem.
We start buying gifts for the boys early in the year when we start spotting good deals. We furtively squirrel everything downstairs, hiding it from the boys. Then, the week before Christmas we head to the basement to start wrapping and sorting only to realize we completely overbought.
Doh! So much for the savings…
Or, even worse, there have been times when I forgot a gift until the last minute! (Sorry mom. Just kidding!). This year, with both Max and Cooper in school, my list is growing. Unfortunately, my memory capacity hasn’t.
Inevitably, there is at least one gift I purchase and put somewhere safe only to find it months later. Usually it is a calendar. <shaking my head>
I put together this little lady in the hopes I can move past my Gift-Giving Issues. (If you don’t want an excel file, you can click here to download a pdf file) Now, just like food tracking, Craig and I need to be diligent enough to actually note what we buy!
You know the saying, You can lead the camel to water….
