Planning Ahead: Presents!!!!

If you saw my latest blog on sinking funds, you’ll know that I am already planning ahead for the cost of Christmas 2022. That sinking fund is for presents for my kids and our immediate family unit. I do, however, still need to get presents for some extended family members and friends and that includes both birthdays, mother’s day, father’s day, and Christmas etc.

I have decided, from this moment, to try and do all handmade gifts where possible, especially for Christmas. I have some good ideas for inexpensive gifts, and I enjoy making things with clay (I got a big pack of polymer clay for Christmas from my hubby). If I can pull this off, I will save myself a lot of money. I have already told family that I am doing less this year, (I have 10 nieces and nephews, a total of 32 extra people to buy for at Christmas!)Token gifts are the way forward.

I always keep lists! I keep note of everyone I have to buy for throughout the year for different occasions. When I have that gift, I tick off the person’s name. If I haven’t made a gift, I will know to scour second hand shops first. Organisation is key.

Here are some of the presents I have been working on:
