This is Day 10 of our 31 Days To An Organized Christmas. To read all the posts in order, start with this post, then visit the Landing Page to see the outline for the whole series.
- Read Project 6: Get Your Gift List Together (pages 48-55) in Get Yourself Organized for Christmas.
- Check in with your Organized Christmas buddy.
- This one is all about the lists (see printables below), so keep them handy especially if you are tempted to buy all the things when you hit those sales. Track who you are buying gifts for (there are some great tips in the book!) and we’ll talk budget in the next project.
For this project, here are some printables that are useful:
- The Get Yourself Christmas Organized Gift List from Get Yourself Organized For Christmas site
- From Life Your Way
- A personalized spreadsheet might work well for all you details people especially if you are following a budget!!
If you know me by now, I do not like shopping. I don’t even do our grocery shopping. Shopping might be more enjoyable if I had money to shop, or can find clothes that fit, or if there weren’t so many choices, or if there were fewer people at checkout…so many things… I have issues. There must be some kind of support group for people like me. :p
So…you can imagine that Gifts (both giving and receiving) is NOT my love language. It takes me a whole lot of brain power to muster up gift ideas. Unless I know what you really, really want, you will most likely get cash/gift cards. We also so lots of donations to charity as gifts. We usually just do gifts for our own families.
Some other great resources for gift-giving:
Some of my best gift ideas came from things my family posted on social media. – Get Yourself Organized for Christmas
Who do you buy gifts for? What strategies do you use to find out what to buy family or friends?
