This Week’s Thrifty-MOM Holiday-Prep Tasks:
Talk with your family, friends and extended families about this year’s “gifting plans”. If there are names to be drawn, spending limits to determine, etc. – get those decided now. Share information such as likes/dislikes, favorite colors, home décor theme, etc. (Note all this down in your notebook!) Then, begin to form a gift-giving list. Inventory your home gift closet (or start one!). Set an upcoming date to gather to work on those homemade gifts too!
Holiday Fun Task: Start the conversation with friends about their holiday traditions. Create an email letter, Facebook post, or simply get together to share these ideas. As a family, pick one or two “new-to-you” traditions to try this year. Transfer the list of supplies to your upcoming shopping list.
Thanks a lot for a bunch of good tips. I look forward to reading more on the topic in the future. Keep up the good work! This blog is going to be great resource. Love reading it.
