Avoid a Holiday Panic Attack by Planning Ahead
With the holiday season approaching, there is no escaping the thoughts of holiday decorations and the long list of gifts that need to be purchased. I always seem to feel a mini-panic attack start to come on this time of year when I think about everything that needs to be done. This season, I’ve decided to do a little more planning and hopefully avoid the panic attack and all of that last minute shopping altogether. I’ve started with the list of gifts for my kids. Well, in my case, it is ONE gift per child since they want gifts that are entirely too expensive…typical teenagers! My daughter has been begging for an iPod Touch, and since she is an outstanding student, an iPod Touch she shall receive. After finding it for a discount online and using my discounted gift cards from PJ, I got $32 off the Touch. Woohoo! An extra $32 in my pocket and one gift down. It’s not even Thanksgiving yet and my daughter has been officially checked off of my list of gifts….DONE and DONE!! I have to start thinking about holiday cards too…oh, and decorations…oh, and gift wrap. Stay tuned for some holiday card and decoration ideas. Happy Holidays!!
