  • Happy New Year Jillee, to you and your family. Hope you have a healthy and prosperous year. Always look forward to you posts each day. Thank your for all your efforts.

  • I just got a ton of Christmas bags/wrap, money holder cards, tissue paper, gift tags, etc. at the Dollar tree for 50 cents apiece. We have 3 in our area so between all 3 I was able to get set for next year and maybe the next.

    • I used to grab up Christmas decor at higher-end stores (garland, artificial holly, winter-themed knick-knacks – tasteful, nothing cheap-looking or tacky) for the next year between Christmas and New Year’s Day (and even into January if stores hadn’t cleared their shelves yet). I have enough right now and less storage but it might be a practice worth resuming once we’re settled in our new house.
