Every year at Christmas, I promise myself to not spend money on presents like I did the year before. I have the best intentions and I put a limit on the amount I will spend on each person. And just as sure as I make the promise, every year my intentions go out the window.
This year I have finally decided why this happens. I wait too long to shop. By the time I make it to the mall, I have only a few weeks to shop, wrap, and deliver. So I am always in a panic and I get to the point that I don’t care what it costs, I will buy anything if I can just mark Dad off my list.
In fact, I think I have this problem with birthdays too. Okay, I am serious this time; I will not make this mistake next year. I promise to plan ahead. I promise to not overspend. I promise to relax and focus on what the holidays are all about – overeating and family!
Speaking of which, Whenever you’re doing any kind of updates to your home whether it’s a bathroom remodel or even a kitchen upgrade, it’s important to create an all-inclusive checklist for yourself. There are different ways to look at it though. First of all are you trying to sell your home or do you just want to simply update things because you’re sick of the old style?
