Even though Christmas is right around the corner, I will give you all a peek inside. Are you ready? This time of year it's pretty scary.
The first reason I do a gift closet is simple: It saves me money, a lot of money! All year 'round I am on the prowl for things to add to it cheaply, so that whenever a birthday/wedding/holiday pops up I'm ready, and we don't have to budget for it that month.
The second reason I do one is my favorite: Charity! This is the picture of what our family was able to donate to Toys for Tots and the Tree of Sharing this year:
Woo hoo! This makes me so, so happy. This is not including the gifts I was able to give my own children, husband, girlfriends or family either. And since I can't really show you what's left in my gift closet for Christmas, I will break down for you what I look for during the year, in general.
