Having a 17-month calendar is just the best idea!
When I got home from a family gathering recently, I turned to the November page and wrote down a few Christmas gift ideas based on what my nieces had said.
One has a Keurig coffee maker and loves a certain kind of coffee; the other one uses a certain line of skin care products; DBIL and his partner love a certain cafe. So I wrote down all that information and now I have some great gift ideas. I also have been noting things DS and DD have said they wanted (gift cards, mostly).
But if I get one or two a week, I can pay CASH and leave the credit cards in my wallet!!
Another use for the best calendar on the planet!!
