    Default Christmas 2006-List what you have done so far to prepare....

    Julie (Baxjul) had the wonderful idea of having a thread that we could list what we have gotten for 2006 Christmas as we get items.  I think it is a great idea.  We can post items we get all year long for next Christmas and I think it will be a motivator to get it done throughout the year and not be stressed by having to get it all done at the last minute.

    So ladies and gents, what have you gotten so far for Christmas 2006....?

    Just call me crazy, but here is my list of who we need to buy for and what we have already purchased. The deals were way too good to pass up. They are in two totes in my closet. I only need 3 more gifts to finish my list for extended family. I haven't purchased anything for DH or our children yet. I found everything after Christmas. DH was the one to purchase the Black and Decker jump start battery charger/power supply. They were originally 58.98 marked down to 12.50.

    We didn't send out any cards for 2005 due to just too much going on with wee one on the way. Any cards we do this year will be homemade and we'll be reusing cards we've received in the past (plus I'll be using them for gift tags as well). The one thing I did so far is to make sure all that is at the top of one of our Christmas storage containers so I have easy access to work on them all year long.

    I went shopping today for Christmas fabric. I plan on making Tree Skirts, stockings and table runners for Christmas presents. I found fabric for $0.80 and $1.25 per yard! I will be starting on these in the next couple of weeks.

    I went to Dollar General today for some things, while there I picked up a candle to put in my box. I plan on buying things all year to have for next Christmas. So far, I have two things, better than ever before!
