Works For Me Wednesday – Christmas Lists

December 17, 2008 at 10:14 pm 2 comments

Every Christmas, my family and I all make Christmas lists. Then we coordinate with each other who is getting what for each person, to eliminate duplicates.

I know that some people think that making a Christmas list takes all of the fun out of giving, but I disagree. Usually our lists of “extras” we’d like to have. Sometime they are very specific, and sometimes more general. Normally I purchase a combination of items on people’s lists and things that I think they will like too.

I am still surprised at what I receive for Christmas and have found using Christmas lists to be very helpful.

    I totally agree — I much prefer having Christmas lists. I think it is a lot more fun to get everything they really want, rather than having to make fake smiles about a flowered jogging suit. LOL

    I like that too! I don’t have room around here for things we don’t need!
    Have a great Christmas!
