Natural and Thrifty in 365: #88 Make a “Have List” for the Holidays

Jolly Holiday to-do list

Instead of just jumping on every deal, sale and coupon that comes along this holiday season, sit down and make yourself a list of the things you have. This is a sort of inventory of all available gifts you already bought, and holiday decor you have.

This way, instead of buying that new pretty snowman table cloth because it’s a good deal, you can use the one that you already have and spend that money you saved on the things you need.

What are some of the ways you will be reusing things this year?

  1. I have bought a few Christmas gifts throughout the year as I found them on sale, but do need to pull them all out and make a list of what I have and who is getting which gift, so I don’t end up buying duplicate gifts. Thanks for the idea.
