Christmas 2015: Forming a Plan

October 8th, 2015 at 02:29 am

So I know it's still a while away yet but I want to attempt to plan for Christmas.

We've finished saving up for our hgh street vouchers like we've done every year for the past five years I think. I only managed to get 10GBP saved on a supermarket savings card, so that plan was an epic fail.

Christmas stuff has started appearing in shops. I will probably write a list of non-perishable items I want and start picking them up.

Christmas dinner will be at home.

I still have to decide what to get the kids. SG is now at the age that she wants every toy from every advert she sees.

DH wants a couple of games. I can't remember exactly which ones, but I can check with him.

I haven't asked my mum what she would like yet but I am sure it will be pretty similar to what she usually wants: pyjamas, chocolates and wine.

We will be doing homemade cards for close friends and family. I think SG will enjoy it although I will have to buy more in soon.

    It is definitely not to early to make a plan for the holidays. I like that you are thinking about the non perishables that you can in to your normal shopping now. I'm going to be thinking about our holiday too.

    I found it was helpful to limit my kids exposure to advertisements leading up to the holidays. And your daughter may be at a good age to understand she won't get everything she wants. Some families just give three gifts for example.

    It's a great time to start looking so you can try and pick up sale items instead of paying full price Smile
