Music Preparing for the Holiday Season

What are you doing to prepare for the holiday season ahead?

I've been trying to update my address book.

I've started working on & ordering Christmas cards. I'm trying to order them a little at a time with free offers from Shutterfly.

I've bought a few presents for the kids and stashed them away.

I need to start an overall gift list.

I'm going to have the kids go through their toys and see what we can get rid of to make some extra room.

There's a big sale at King Soopers (Kroger affiliate) next week, so I need to make some holiday meal plans.

I too will be de cluttering toys.

Also my stores have already started some holiday sales, so starting to stock up on those for Thanksgiving.

Also for Xmas we always eat Mexican food, so I always try one new recipe. Searching Pinterest is never a chore.

I will probably do most of my online, but my gift buying will be minimal as I think we are going to do a White Elephant game instead.

Oh and try to get as much sleep and meals planned as we are both in management for ups and our busy time has started!!! Extra $$ is sooo nice, but one of us works around the clock M-F.

We do a bunch of donations during the holidays!

I love the Menard's Rebate items for donations.

Harbor Freight frees make nice gifts for charities.

Bath & Body Works along with Victoria Secret Frees always bring a smile.

One organization does a shoe box program where I donate all my samples.

It is also time to increase my food closet donations. (organize the stock pile time.)

It is almost time to start preparing these items for distribution!

As a family we volunteer at different organizations also.

My children are 17, 17 and 23 and I try to have a season of gratitude for what we have. I set up a gratitude tree. There is a basket of gift tags to write things we are grateful for on everyday. The tags and other items received over the season are our decorations.

It also seems like a full time job watching the sales whether online or in store. But the challenge pays off when I know I did a kindness.
