xmas shopping list

*yes, you can download;)
It's less than a month to Christmas and last year I'd promised myself I am not leaving Xmas Presents Shopping last minute, ever again. So right now is a good time to get organised and a helpful list is how it starts: I left a space for my total budget (or balance in my piggy bank) right at the top, so that I have some sort of limit to what I can spend. Then I split my space into: Names, Budget, Possible Gift and a "mission accomplished" (or Done) space to tick in relief.

It's best to write down the names you want to offer gifts to so that you don't leave out anyone important. Then you split your budget to how much you are willing to spend on each person (you'll probably like to keep the list secret!) to avoid running out of money half way. Once that's sorted, you note the best possible gifts for the amount vs the person. When the list is completed you can get xmas shopping out of the way within a day of good leg work: you know exactly what you're looking for!

If you wish to try it out too, just click on the image to enlarge (should be A4), then save as, then print.
Knock yourself out planning and above all, enjoy!

Wow girl, you're putting me to shame! Talk about organised! :)

I agree with what Natalie posted above, i have never seen anyone that organised for Christmas before.

Think i might have to actually download a copy of this, it's a genius idea.

I love your blog here by the way (:

@natalie & Jord. - I am the last person on earth who's organised:) it's just that last year it was all too stressful and last minute, not to mention the lack of budget limit and what this did to my credit card! Hope this shopping list does the trick...

Ok this is awesome. I just printed it out and I'm definately going to use it!! My family is huge so I always loose track of everyone I still have to buy gifts for and what money I have left. I'm sure the list will be very helpful!! Thanks!
