Please participate in the Poll! (Note: Now closed)

[NOTE: the poll - now closed - has been removed .] I'm hoping that my readers who aren't members of Blogger and can't post comments can still vote in a poll. Those of you who can post a comment, feel free to tell me what you've done so far to prepare for Christmas. In 10 months we'll be pulling out our decorations and supplies and gearing up for a wonderful holiday season!


  1. I have plenty of wrapping paper and bows, but I haven't used ribbon in years, so I bought a supply of ribbons to dress up the gifts. I bought Christmas cards at clearance prices and even bought a box for my daughter to give out after she asked if she could send cards too. My last purchase wasn't planned, but I ended up buying a Walmart display tree at 75% off the original price. The artificial tree that my children's ornaments go on (Mom and I gifted the kids with lots of personalized and otherwise special ornaments over the years) is around six years old. It's missing a limb or two and has a number of large gaps in it. I'd been thinking of replacing it, and when I saw that display tree, I knew I'd found the perfect replacement!

  2. Brenda,
    What if you just finished putting up Christmas decorations?!!!! LOL Is it too late to get on board?

  3. Donna, LOL! Don't tell anybody, but one tree is still up beside the basement fireplace. I've seen 75% off Christmas clearance at Big Lots, so there's still a chance you can snag some bargains!

  4. Brenda,
    A couple weeks ago I just put everything away and I've been snowed in so I haven't had time to do anything on your list! Although I did take a cute picture of the kids in the snow that I thought about useing as a Christmas picture next year.

  5. I should have included a vote for "nothing yet," but it slipped my mind.


Your comments fuel my writing and could give me ideas for future posts, so give me your thoughts!
