“Merry Christmas to you……”
I write you today while I sit at my dining table and listen to Holly songs on the XM station. “Kind of early?”, you say. True. But, I am kind of in the spirit as I have started the Holiday Pandemonium.
Well, it’s that time of year that I vow not to become overstressed. I am trying to stick to my guns on that one. And in order to that, it is important to PLAN! PLAN! PLAN! Oh yes, and stick to a plan. ‘Do not deviate’, I tell myself.
Here is part of my plan and what I have accomplished:
1. Make list of everyone you would like to get gifts for this year – DONE
2. Make list of everyone you need to send Christmas cards – DONE
3. Ordered Christmas cards – DONE Cost: $19.99 for two sets of 10. – DONE
Don’t laugh. 😉
I really am not thrilled of my pic. Of course, we, as women, are always so critical of ourselves. One, I have been walking around Knott’s all day long. Two, I forgot to throw on the make-up. Darn! So, be it. This is actually our first photo together as a family! lol!
Both men remark, “it looks as if we are going to shoot eachother”. Boys will be boys!
4. 19 Coworkers and 1 Teacher – Cost: $26.00 – Equals $1.30 per person. – DONE
“Bravo”, I say!
Just a little token to say MERRY CHRISTMAS: 6 Bags of Christmas Chocolates (sale at Target 3 bags for $7); 1 box of 60 Mint Mini Candy Canes $1.99; 1 package of 60 Foil Christmas tree gold seals; 28 Christmas Treat bags $4.98
It’ll work if I don’t pop open the bags for myself. haha. I bought 100 Grand, Hershey’s Nuggets with Almonds, Kisses with Almonds, Dark Chocolate Mounds, M&M;’s, and Christmas Snicker Mini’s. Hey, these women love there chocolate! 🙂
5. What is left?
I really would like to put down: buy logs for fireplace. But it is mid-80’s right now! Way to hot for this season.
Where does your holiday planning stand at? Or have you not even had a chance to think about it?!
Plan! Plan! Plan! I think that is definitely going to be my key to staying on Holiday Budget this year. And I am doin’ Okay so far around the Holiday Glitz.
