Hey guys! I know I’ve been slacking on here, and I apologize but I’m working on it. I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving with your loved ones. The weekend before Thanksgiving I took a sudden trip to LA to visit my brother, who I hadn’t seen in over three years. I can’t begin to explain how happy I was to see his face, to hear his voice, and catch up with him. While in LA I got to spend some time with my family, which was much needed. Back home, I was greeted by my boyfriend and my kiddos at the Greyhound Bus Station. The next few days consisted of preparing our home for all the guest we were expecting for our Thanksgiving dinner. This time of year reminds me that even though I don’t have everything I want, I have everything I need, and for that I’m so thankful.
Now, it’s time to prepare for Christmas! I wanted to get a head start on my Christmas shopping this year so I did some online shopping on Black Friday, and got some amazing deals. Which reminds me, I want to share with you guys how you can earn money when shopping online. I’m sure some of you already know what I’m talking about, it’s an app called Ebates. This app literally pays you to shop through their website, and it’s completely FREE. I definitely recommend that you guys check it out, if you haven’t already.
Year after year, I print out a Christmas wish list for my oldest son and we mail it to Santa on the first of December. As he gets older, I try to remind him that Christmas is not just about receiving gifts, but also about giving back, and about being with family. I also made a Christmas budget so I can keep track of all of my expenses during the holidays. My Happy Planner also helps me stay organized. I’d love to hear how you guys stay organized during this time of year. Please share in the comments below. Thanks for reading.
