May Your Days Be Merry...
Updated: Feb 26, 2019
Are you ready for Christmas? For the first time in years, I am actually feeling ready and confident. I think what helped me more this year than any other year in the past is keeping a list throughout the year of what my family and friends mention that they need or want. I nonchalantly take note of it in my phone and it helped me really get to know more about each person. Plus, no headache of thinking about what to get someone! Who has time for that?! Not me.
This literally was the best idea I have had by staying organized all year, and it served a great purpose this holiday season. Think about it, every time someone mentions to you what they love in March or September, they will most likely forget about and you would most likely forget about it as well. By keeping track when something gets mentioned, you get a better idea of curating something more meaningful as a gift to each person by actually getting them something they wanted and forgot about. It's genius!
I thank myself this holiday season for keeping track of a list all year long so that I won't be stressed out. I was also able to see how much I would end up having to spend on gifts so that there were no surprise expenses. Just for that my days this holiday season are "merry and bright." xx
