99/98 Days to Christmas

I missed yesterdays email because it didn’t get to my inbox until late so I’m now checking the site directly. Yesterday’s tip was to make a Christmas Planner.
I like the idea of having a big, ring bound book with a Christmassey decorated cover but in reality, I know I wouldn’t use it daily to get organised because I prefer to type than to use a pen!
So I have my excel sheet all ready to go with a column each for Name, Item, Price and Link to item if I’m buying it online…..who am I kidding, of course I’ll be buying online!

Today’s tip is to plan your budget. We’re on a tight budget this year so I need to find some lovely home made gifts that don’t cost the earth to make.
Sometimes you think making your own is going to be cheaper but when you add up the cost for all the supplies, it can get more expensive so be sure to check out the price per unit if you’re going to make your own.

    … you could get a really big ring-binder and, after Christmas, copy the contents of your spreadsheet into it, also adding photos of the whole Christmas experience. You could do 1 a year, or just have one big one that spanns 5 years – a 5 year diary of Christmas.
