Here's a mini challenge for the week!

For those of you who celebrate a holiday this month - Solstice, C'mas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or something else - make your list! I'm sure most of you have at least a mental list, if not one on paper. This week make your list and include...

Name
Gifts you have
Gifts you need
Budget

...for each person

If you're having a hard time deciding on a gift for someone, make a list of their interests, things they might splurge on if they had the money (dinner out, concert tickets, massage...), any trips they might be going on, etc. Doing this will help you brainstorm gift ideas.

Then make a list of the places you need to go (or websites!) to get the rest of your gifts. If you're organized and have a plan, it will keep you from that last minute throw-anything-in-the-cart shopping frenzy.

I am just about finished with my Christmas shopping, but have had a running list since the end of October...

I have a Excel spreadsheet with each person on it, what I have for them, and what I still need to get. At this point, my biggest problem is finding TIME to go and get things.
