I Started my Christmas Shopping This Morning!

 

Yes, it’s true.  I started my Christmas shopping this morning.  I found a wonderful yard sale with my dear girlfriend, Miss Sherry.  I found some nice Christmas decorations, some of which I’ll use, and some of which will be gifts.  I also found a few things that I’ll use before Christmas.  Now I just need to squirrel everything away until the right time! 

Have a wonderful weekend!

It’s Time to Start Thinking About Christmas!

Yes Friends, you read that right.  It’s April, and it’s time to start thinking about Christmas.  Think back a few months to the weeks and days leading up to last Christmas…. Were you stressed, worried about getting it all done, finding that you don’t have time to relax and enjoy the month of Advent, of looking forward to Christ’s birth?  Thinking ahead and planning ahead can make a major difference. 

Why in April though?  Most early planning starts in October.  Well,  I’m starting to think ahead because, as a one income family, money is always tight during the holidays.  Right now, in April, the most wonderful sales are taking place.  Where?  Yard sales, garage sales, rummage sales, tag sales, estate sales, thrift shops and flea markets.  If you’re diligent to hunt and careful in your selection, you can find some treasures that make thoughtful gifts for friends and family.  Most folks don’t mind a thrifted gift if you’ve been thoughtful and selective, choosing something they would enjoy.  You know, it truly is the thought that counts!  Starting early allows you plenty of time to find something special for your dear ones.  It also saves dollars and precious time later in the year when you’d rather be baking cookies, visiting with loved ones, or simply enjoying a quiet cup of tea and a good book or The Good Book.  It’s easier to focus on our Lord and Savior and His great love and sacrifice for us when we’re not focusing on the have to do’s.  Starting early, earlier, and earliest will give you the luxury to enjoy your Christmas season to the fullest.

So, ladies, start your engines…

Let’s go yard saling!

Blessings to you,

Laura

Happy at Home
