How I Keep My Shopping List Neat
With Black Friday quickly approaching and gifts on the brain, I thought it might be a good idea to share again my very favorite way to stay organized during the madness of holiday shopping, a gift spreadsheet.
I think this might be my 3rd or 4th year of using the same spreadsheet and every year I think to myself, this is brilliant. ha! It’s so simple, but gosh, it keeps me so organized and on budget. Plus, I don’t like to be rushed when shopping, so this helps me keep all of my holiday thoughts in one place. When I see something I know someone on my list will like, I just add the link in and keep going. It really has saved me more times than I can count!
Hopefully this holiday season it will do the same for you!
How I Use This Shopping Spreadsheet
I know it’s nothing earth shattering, but I promise the spreadsheet makes Christmas shopping a breeze!
It’s not about buying the same priced item for everyone, but really finding something each person will love!
- Write down the names of everyone on your shopping list
- Decide your total gifting budget.
- Divide the gifting budget by the number of people on your list OR manually assign a gift amount to each person. Actually, I do a little of both. It’s not about buying the same priced item for everyone, but really finding something each person will love! But at least dividing it out will give you a ballpark as you brainstorm gift ideas.
- Download this Spreadsheet & keep track.
- Happy Holiday Shopping
