One thing you can’t live without #Blogtober16

What I Can’t Live Without

Obviously, my family would be first and foremost but I’m thinking about material things for this post. My laptop makes my life easier and I have my life on it so I can’t live without it.

I’ve got spreadsheets for everything from banking, Christmas lists, and even food menus.

My Christmas spreadsheet is my favourite, not surprisingly! I’ve had it since 2007 and I can look back each year and see what presents I’ve bought. I never run the risk of buying duplicate presents.
I plan everything on that spreadsheet. Buffet food for Christmas eve, dinner food for Christmas day, Christmas cards, trolley treats, the budget and of course, the presents.

I even made a note of how many boxes of decorations we put in the loft last year so Ant wasn’t having to search around for them.
I buy for Christmas all year so I use the spreadsheet all year to keep track of everything I buy 🙂

My laptop is sadly coming to the end of its days. The hinge has broken and Ant had to put screws in it to stop it breaking further. I can’t close the lid now but I still love it!

I’m taking part in #Blogtober16. It’s a post every day during October with a different prompt. Tomorrow I’ll be picking my favourite type of animal.
