I don't know about you but this is about the time of year I start thinking about what to buy the special people in my life. I may not actually start buying but I believe in preparing as fully as possible so that I can enjoy the holiday season and avoid being stressed out by trying to remember last minute gifts. Here are some tips:
- Create an excel spreadsheet and list all the people you need to buy gifts for
- Come up with an overall budget or a budget for each recipient or category (i.e. friends, family, service people)
- When you see something you think will be a good match for someone on your list, make a note on the spreadsheet or include the link to the website.
Hopefully these tips will keep you organized as we head into the holidays!
