Week 9

We are well past the half way mark!  It's hard to believe November is around the corner.  Be proud of yourself for making it this far and making so much progress.  Keep up the great work!
  • Make a batch of holiday goodies
  • Make a freezer meal- running out of ideas?  Try this:
  • Buy canned food- if you have already purchased all necessary items from your long-term shopping list.  Grab a can or two to donate.
  • Buy at least one gift.  Wrap and label it.
  • Work on homemade gifts.
  • Start addressing Christmas cards
  • Buy stamps.
  • Check your candy inventory for trick-or-treaters.  Stock up if you need more!
  • Send invites for Thanksgiving.  These do not need to be formal.  Feel free to email, text, or call friends and family to give them a heads up on your plans or to coordinate schedules.
  • Buy extra batteries for gifts and décor.  There is nothing worse than unpacking holiday decorations only to find their batteries are dead.
  • Purchase your Turkey- if they are available in your area.  They might not be the most inexpensive, but the benefit of purchasing early is that you are guaranteed the size that you want.  I cannot begin to tell you how many times I've been left with 20+ lb turkeys to feed our small family.
