Planning for Christmas giving is this week's theme at Christmas Countdown. This is where I am usually challenged as I don't normally start shopping until after Thanksgiving and this year, even though I am prepared to shop early, I need to carefully check the budget list twice and maybe three times, before I jump in with both feet. My goal this year is to have the shopping done by December 6th and then all the wrapping done by Dec. 14th.
So with the challenge to make due with less this year, I know that some wise pre-shopping web-surfing will save me both time and money in the long run. I already know the general big items I will get. I just need to find the best prices and wait for a sale for a couple of the items.
Next on my list...find our turkey for Thanksgiving and plan the meal.
