The Countdown has Begun

Folks, it’s time we get serious here.

I’m going to tell you something that may excite you but it may panic you.

Are you ready?

Christmas is less than 100 days away!

In fact, it’s only 94 days away!


For some (my children), it seems far away and for others it seems like it’s right around the corner.

I must confess that I have started shopping already. In fact, I’ve almost completed some people off my list. What can I say, buying for my little nephews is just so much fun. Big people, well, they’re a little trickier.

I came across this site the other day with free Christmas organizing printables and I thought it would be worth it to share.

I have in the past, bought something for someone, completely forgotten about it, and bought them a second gift. Not that anyone is complaining but I do plan on using some of the printables in order to avoid that mistake this year- the shopping list, the gift list, and I kind of love the master checklist.

So confess now…

Are you a Christmas shopping planner or are you a the last minute shopper?

  1. Have bought one gift already….prefer to shop ahead in spurts….get a lot done one weekend and then stop for about a total of three…oh, and Internet shopping usually happens on one weekend…..

  2. combination shopper! btw-my mother in law needs your printable. She’s bought more gifts twice than any of us know about!

  3. I’m torn on this one. When I’ve shopped ahead, the kids would often change their minds about what they wanted closer to the holiday or I’d find a better deal later. Now, if it is an unusual item or a really great deal on a large “they’ll-never-change-their-minds-on-this” item, I buy ahead.

    Online shopping has helped with the shopping madness. They get things delivered pretty quick now.
