Don’t let all of those birthdays and anniversaries sneak up on you. Keep a list of what comes up every month and at the beginning of the month, sit down and take a look at it.
With online shopping there is no excuse for sending a present. Many sites even offer you the ability to schedule things to arrive at a later date. We have lots of suggestions on clutter free gifts in other blog posts if you need them. Use online sourcing when possible and you can even send cards from your computer. Treat.com is a great way to schedule cards and personalize them in a way you can’t with cards bought at the mall.
Always have at least one roll of wrapping paper on hand too. I like having kraft paper, white or silver wrapping paper around at all times and then lots of stamps, stickers and ribbons to customize it for the appropriate age and event.
