Free Printable Christmas & Homemade Gift Trackers

So I’m a bit of a compulsive Christmas gift buyer. Me and Cody both are. We each want to give to everyone so we start out intending to only give to certain people and then when we are out shopping, we find stuff for other people.

Then it takes until February to actually give everyone their gifts. In fact, I still have two of last year’s Christmas presents in the closet.

Last Christmas, we spent a TON of money. It was okay, because it was the first year we were making good income, so I didn’t want to rain on the parade. This year though, we need to keep it in check. And I’ve been feeling a ton of anxiety over it.

I kept feeling my head in a million different directions so I finally sat down and made myself some trackers. I made a Christmas gift tracker and a homemade gift tracker. Then I decided I may as well share them! (Yay!)

So hopefully we can all have a stress free holiday season.

This Christmas gift tracker and handmade gift tracker will make it super easy to keep your holiday budget in check this year!

I think the toys should be all laid out like you're about to play with them. My parents never wrapped our Santa presents and I remember running into the living room insanely excited to see what I got. I … [Continue reading...]

Whiter Teeth for the Holidays with Smile Brilliant


Disclaimer: This post contains products that were provided for consideration in exchange for a review. However, all opinions are my own! My teeth have always been something I've been a little insecure about. I mean, I've never smoked but I do drink tea and coke and been around second hand smoke my whole life so my teeth do get stained. I'm not to the point that I HATE smiling for pictures but whenever I do, I always end up thinking my teeth could look better. I knew teeth whitening at the … [Continue reading...]
