Tuesday’s Tip-Watch that List

I honestly don’t care where you put that list or what’s on it, but make a list and stick to it.  I have said this once already and just want to repeat it again.  It seems like the “season” over takes us and we just start throwing things in our carts.

I found something today that my daughter wanted and I was hoping to get it between $5-$10.  Cheapest I could find was $18.  I moved on since it wasn’t in my budget.  You should do the same.

By the way, how is that list coming?  Mine hasn’t really been worked on to much. Gone are the days of having it done in July.

  1. We are almost done! I am waiting on an order from Amazon, need to print out a gift card from Amazon, finish the last 2 pages of a photo book and make a hat for my littlest one. Wow, that list seems a lot longer all typed out!

  2. You are way ahead of me, so your list sounds completely doable. Enjoy the holidays while the rest are running around like crazy.

  3. Hey Amy, I’m with you on this. We are sticking to our budget and list like glue this year, and it’s made a huge difference. It’s actually helping us have a more stress-free holiday (for a change). Like you, if I can’t find something at a price that fits in the budget, we move on to Plan B. I only have one more daughter to buy for, but am not finding what we wanted to get her at a price we can afford, so are crossing it off our list and will look for something else on her list.

    Merry Christmas!
