Shopping for the Holidays

Please visit Steph in the City for more ideas on holiday shopping and budgeting.

I usually start Christmas shopping in September. I look for deals on items and make an excel spreadsheet to track what I have bought for whom. This allows me to at least try not to go overboard. This year I am being the most conservative ever when it comes to spending money. And, I am especially going for quality not quantity. I have a hard time buying one really nice item for someone.

Remember that Parenthood for Me offers some great items to purchase for gifts, and the net proceeds of your purchase go toward the endowment. Click here.

The excel spreadsheet is a great idea. I need to implement something like that. That would help seeing the amount I've spent right in front of me so I don't go over budget. I really need to get organized like that.

That hair clip is so cute! I don't have children, but I'm thinking about just wearing it to class every day!
