Only 36 more days til Christmas. Thirty six days seems like a lot of time, but you know it is going to go by QUICK! I am striving to be mostly done by Thanksgiving. Mostly. But, if I don't quite make it, I at least know I will be about 90% ready.
This week, I did manage to get about 9 gifts wrapped. These are items I had purchased earlier this year. Mostly small items, jewelry and such. I have a few more things on hand to wrap, but I need to pick up some shirt boxes today. Luckily I have enough gift wrap on hand to get the job done, but what I can't find is the "name tags" for the gifts. What usually happens, is I will find them AFTER I have already made name tags out of the gift wrap.
What I have been procrastinating on is putting the photo calenders together for several family members. I am determined to get that done THIS weekend! I only have one done, and I have about 4, maybe 5 more to do. It is hard to select just the right photograph.... there are so many to chose from!
Earlier this morning, I went online to MyCokeRewards and redeemed some of my points for magazine subscriptions as gifts for family members. My daughter is a fitness nut so she will be getting "Fitness" magazine, and my son in law likes to cook, so he will be getting "Everyday Food" from the Food Network. I have a few more points to redeem, it is just trying to decide which magazine to get for my mom.
I still have about $150.00 in Amazon gift cards to redeem. I have been accumulating them all year with SwagBucks.. I would have had more, but I used some to purchase a vascular ultrasound study guide which was about $80.00. I have yet to decide how to spend the Amazon gift cards. Will have to figure that out this weekend too.
Here is where I stand so far:
Husband ~ He wants a huge compressor ........
Son In Law DONE
Daughter In Law
Grandson #1 DONE
Granddaughter #3 DONE
Best Friend #1DONE
Best Friend Daughter DONE
TOTAL SPENT $144.00
Let's see If I can finish it up this weekend! How are you doing with your shopping?
