As I was preparing my coffee this morning, I took out the milk carton and saw that the best before date was December 17th....that is only 5 weeks away, there are exactly 41 days left until Christmas!! I am so excited. Even though P only sorta kinda gets it this year, its such a fun time of year.
I have to say this year I feel a little ahead of the 8 ball, most of my Christmas shopping is done with a few straggler items to pick up. Believe it or not I even have a good chunk of them wrapped already as well!
I strongly believe in shopping online as much as possible. I hate going into stores at Christmas time, especially with kids. Its mayhem, people are rude, you can never find parking, kids are having meltdowns in every direction, it's just chaos. I usually only buy things from sites with free shipping, or great specials, I don't like the idea of having to pay 10 or more dollars extra for shipping to shop online. Another little secret is before you checkout at those online retailers Google the name of the store with coupon code ( ex: Old Navy coupon code) and I would say about 80% of the time you can come up with a decent coupon, just last week I saved 16$ on something I ordered.
This year I am also looking forward to making some of my own decorations, which I will gladly share with you all once I get it moving! I also plan on baking and volunteering with my oldest daughter, which is also something I will share with you guys during the next 5 weeks. We have some Christmas traditions both old and new and I cant wait to post them and see what you guys have as traditions as well!
