FOUR Days to Go!!

Oh, it is coming down to the wire.  I hope you mailed your gifts today that need to get to parts unknown.  Now that you have that out of the way, let's finish wrapping everything that you will need for this weekend. 

  • Make a list of people who you want to remember with a little something.  
  • Check your stash to ensure you have something for each person on this list.
  • Make a list of voids in your list; i.e., a name on the list, but nothing in the stash.
  • You know what you have to do next -- run to the store to pick up last minute items.
  • Hopefully, you have enough energy to finish your wrapping when you get home.
Now, don't stress too much, you can finish the wrapping tomorrow if need be.  But be sure you have everything together when you are ready to wrap.
  1. Tissue Paper
  2. Wrapping Paper
  3. Tape
  4. Scissors
  5. Ribbon and/or bows
  6. Tags (you can make your own on the computer) & pen
  7. Any decorative items you like to tie on the package for a little flair
  8. Gift bags are always fun and easy!
Okay, get to work.  Don't forget when you are finished to store everything in one location for future use.  I have one of those large plastic tubs that holds everything.  When I finish I put it all back and it goes downstairs on the shelf until I need it again.  Yes, I even put a pair of scissors in there.  They aren't that expensive any more and you will be glad to have them right where you need them.

Remember, just four more days to go so don't dilly dally now.  Once you are finished, then you can have that coveted movie or book day!

Leave a comment if you have some other great ideas for us.
