Just a few years ago I kept a spreadsheet during my Christmas shopping. I had a complete list of what everyone was getting, the retail cost, and my sales cost. I had the columns calculating what I had spent and what I had saved. That was great!
Last year I kept the list. But I stopped tracking the spending and savings. I had a pretty good grasp on it. And we had our Christmas savings account that was budgeted all year long. So I was good.
This year . . . I SUCK! I’ve bought some things. Most of them are in one location. I don’t know really what I’ve bought. And I had a lot of shopping left to do! This week I snuck in some online shopping. And today the first box came! Tonight I snapped some pictures to start logging what I’ve gotten so far. By the end of this weekend I should have a pretty good idea of where in the world I am with the shopping!
Tonight I am thankful for online shopping!!! I have been so disorganized so far! But I will getting better really quickly!
