I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date! I’m here though and it’s time for Keep It Together with Alexandra. If you have anything about planning/planners, scrapbooks, memory keeping, etc. link up with us below! Every Third Thursday of the month!!!
Are You Planning for the Holidays Yet?
Don’t tell me it’s too soon! Maybe you aren’t ready to bust out the decorations or watch holiday movies, but we’re officially halfway through the year and that means the holidays will be knocking very soon. I’m not wishing away the rest of the year – Fall is my favorite season/Halloween is my favorite holiday after all – but I do want to try and be a bit more prepared this year.
I used to plan out gifts for Christmas through the year, but the last couple of years I’ve been a bit behind on things. In order to save some money, and not spend so much all at once, I need to start thinking about what I want to get everyone…and actually start getting items!
The person I probably have to focus on the most is my mom because for the last few years I’ve been giving her the same type of gift for Christmas: A year’s worth of mother/daughter dates! Each month has a different outing, whether that’s a play, a local event, a movie, pedicures, etc. I don’t pay ahead for every single month, but I do what I can so it’s easier when that month comes, so I should really start looking into ideas for next year and buying tickets and/or gift cards for the things I really want to include. This is definitely a gift you want to give yourself time to plan (and pay for).Keep It Together: have you started planning for the holidays? #ontheblog Click To Tweet
Of course, my mom isn’t the only one I need to shop for, so yeah, I definitely need to start planning and setting aside gifts.
What about you? Have you started planning for the holidays (whether that’s gifts or just other plans)?
