Thanksgiving is over , now its the mad dash until the end of the year. Here are 6 things you MUST consider doing before the year is over.
Christmas lights- Get those lights up. Please do not drive by my house to see that I don't have my lights up yet, but I am working on it ASAP. Lets enjoy our lit creations early.
Get Organized. Getting organized can help you figure out what you have and what you need for the holidays so you don't over spend. Sam from Simply Organized does an excellent job with keeping you savvy and organized and always shares valuable shopping resources.
Get some gift cards. Christmas is now less than 30 days away. Be ready. Tackle it like the boss that you are. Everyone loves a good gift card, but don't stop there. Make it memorable.
