Today is a themed Works for me Wednesday. Kristen is asking us to share ideas that help us through the holiday season. My best tip is this:
I use this notebook to keep lists in. I have a list of all the people I need to get gifts for. I have lists of gift ideas for those people. When I purchase something, I write the gift next to the name. When the gift is wrapped and ready to be given, I cross the name off.
This notebook is divided into sections. The dividers have pockets in them and I put coupons and flyers into the folders. I use another one of the pockets to tuck reciepts into.
I also use the other sections to write down parties and things I have to make for them.
My brain is too busy during this season, so it really helps to have things written down in a place I can easily check into.
Another holiday tip is to shop early and make it fun. Many of you know that my sisters and I plan a shopping trip every year. We shop for the day and spend the night in a hotel. We get most of our shopping done and have fun doing it. We'll be on our shopping trip for this year on Friday! So, find someone to shop with and get a head start on it!
