let's Christmas shop!

Do you realize that in four months Christmas will be over?

I know. We were all thinking it, someone had to say it.

I want to start Christmas shopping soon, for the kids, for the husband, for our parents! This is the year, seriously, where I want the gifts bought before December.

This year I'm stealing a system that a blogger friend of mine uses when shopping for her kids. Each kid gets four presents:
  1. something they want
  2. something they need
  3. something to wear
  4. something to read

I think it's awesome. It gives variety, while also helping to focus the Christmas shopping as well as curb excess gift-buying. Looking at the list this way I already have ideas for some of the kids. Can't wait to get started!

Woot! Christmas shopping!!
I've bought Devin's gift so far (that's a big one to get out of the way!).
Next up teacher gifts because they're pretty easy.
Lots of lists made already with ideas. :)

God job Sonya, bet it feels good to be done that one. You haven't wrapped it and put it under your tree yet, have you?
