For the last two years we've been implementing the want/wear/read/need gift philosophy for Christmas.
I have loved the results!
It keeps me focused on exactly what to get without being overwhelmed and it helps us stick to a budget.
I also enjoy spending more time picking out more meaningful gifts and not just buying "stuff" just for the sake of it.
As a family we've really been trying to SIMPLIFY our lives as a whole.
We keep this in mind while we are shopping.
"Is this a meaningful gift that fits in one of the categories or is it just more "stuff'"? "
That's what has been working for us, I can't wait to see their faces on Christmas morning!
