works for me wednesday #4

i think it's number 4....

anyway, this is my christmas shopping list tip. starting in november or so, i keep a folded piece of paper with the names of everyone who i'm buying a gift for, in my wallet. whenever i think of a good gift idea for someone, i'll take it out and write it next to their name. i'm one of those "ideas-come-to-me-at-odd-times" kind of people, and if i don't write them down, i can never remember what my great idea was!!

so this way, i have a running list of ideas for each person, so when i actually go shopping, it saves me from wandering the store looking for something to grab my attention. then when each person is bought for, they get checked off.

maybe it's simple, but it works for me.

    That would be a great idea to pass onto my mom. She always thinks of things she'd want for herself when she's out shopping but then forgets them as soon as she gets home. Thanks for sharing! =)
