As you all know from reading, we're moving in 2 weeks (from yesterday!). Along with moving, we'll be finding a house, paying for my schooling, and everything else we need to pay for. We'll only be having one source of income at the moment, so we need to save ALL the money we can.
When Alyson wrote about how she was going to do a blog series called 4 Gifts, I bragged about it to Cody about how it was an AMAZING idea and it was so smart and makes total sense for the holidays.
So, I asked Alyson if I could join and she said of course!
What this series is about is the types of presents you want, need, wear, and read. Each week, we'll be posting a list of things we want, need, wear, and read.
This week, it's want.
The idea is you choose something to fit under the following four categories:
Something I want
Something I need
Something I'll wear
Something I'll read
If it's something smaller, then 2-3 gifts per category works, otherwise one large item per category. Not only does this stop you from buying EVERYTHING in the world, but it also helps you save money in the long run. So, Cody and I will be participating in this in our own family this year, too!
Now I know I won't get everything I want, need, wear, and read, BUT this is just a general list :)
I'm so excited for this!
MY WANTS LIST:
Keurig for the new house
Patio furniture for the new house
Laptop cooling fan
What do YOU want for the holidays? Anything specific?
