So the kids are back in school and you're back at work and you're thinking, "The last thing I want to think about is Christmas" but I am here to tell you that this month is the best for getting some of your shopping done. October is a great month to put together some gifts for those hard to buy for people on your shopping list. I also guarantee that you are going to get good prices too.
that is a great idea... but what if you have no where to store these gifts any ideas? the other day my mom bought something for my sister and she said well i need to start christmas shopping ill keep it for christmas well that didnt last. we had no where to put it!
Unless you are going to be taking a trip, luggage is a great place to store gifts and you can lock it. Since it is usually kept out of the way, no one will think of looking there. Small things can be kept in a couple of empty shoe boxes on a closet shelf (like jewelry, cosmetics, Matchbox cars, etc.)
I have a top shelf in my closet that is too high for my kids to get anything off from it. I put everything in plastic bags and put the items up there. I love to check out the clearance items at this time of year. If there is a toy or something that one of my boys really wants I ask them if they think their cousin would like it. I then purchase the toy while they are with me. The whole time they think I am buying it for their cousin, I am really buying it for them. They forget about the item once it is out of sight.
