Jolly Holiday Prep 2K16: Day 4

Posted on

Hope your week is going well!  I can’t believe how fast August is flying by!

Here are some things you should be doing each day…

Add 1 item to either your donate or sell box.
Write down what you had for dinner last night.
Continue adding addresses to your list. I’ve noticed it’s really difficult to just look it up in the phone book. So many people have given up their home phones so it’s a little more tricky.


So, yesterday you started your list of who you need to buy for.  Keep adding to that list as you think of others.  The reason I’m asking you to do this so early, is once the holiday season is upon us, we seem so frazzled and rushed and that’s when we tend to forget someone or something.  Doing it now will save you so much time later on!
TODAY, start a list of stocking stuffers.  Tell me who you buy stocking stuffers for?  I will keep a master list as you share ideas with me and post it so you can quickly look at it when the time comes.  Leave me a comment of your favorite stocking stuffer to GIVE and your favorite stocking stuffer you RECEIVE.  Personally, stockings are my favorite to both buy and receive so this is FUN for me.  Start picking things up NOW while you are out.  Gather a few things at a time, then it’s much easier later on!  For example, everyone here always gets toothbrushes in their stocking.  Something simple I can pick up now and just put back…and it’s DONE.  I’ll post my list later today.  Hope you’ll share yours too.

Have a Joyful Day!

It’s Christmas Eve Eve!

Posted on

It’s hard to believe Christmas is almost here again!  The days sure seem to go by so quickly…and the excitement and magic that you can see through a childs eyes is so incredible.  Soak it all in, these are the memories that you will hold near and dear to your heart forever!

Is your shopping all finished up?  If you are an Amazon Prime member there are still some things you can get One day shipping on (for a small charge) and still get it tomorrow.   Or you can run to your nearest retailer and hope they have what you need.

Gather the family, bake some cookies, watch some great Christmas movies on tv, finish wrapping and enjoy the season.

Don’t forget to charge the batteries in your camera, video camera or your phone!  Clear off your phone or make sure you have a fresh SD card for your camera so you can take lots of photos!

Just 2 days to go…Merry Christmas Eve Eve!

Have A Joyful Day!!
