I've been working quite a bit this week and I have to say, while initially I was a little bummed to finally start working right around the holidays, I'm finding this to be a blessing in disguise. One of the things I love to do is find amazing deals on everything possible and share them online. This can only lead to one thing on my part. Crazy amounts of wish listing. In vain, but I wish nonetheless! Less time on the computer means less time finding deals, which means less coveting all I see!!
Speaking of wish listing and deals and coveting, it's time to crack down on Chanukah presents. I said crack down, by the way, because my present box is already overflowing at the top of my closet. I stock up on presents all year long. Whenever I see something on clearance that I know we've been wanting to get for the kids, I sneak it into the box. Some Chanukahs I don't even make it through all the gifts in the box, after gifts from family comes in. We like to give them something each night, doesn't have to be anything big. I got Benny some cute pez dispensers. That works for a night's present! We try to do one nice, big gift and the rest are small, cute things. Now, just because my box is overflowing, doesn't mean I have all I've planned on getting. I also add exciting things I find on Amazon to the kids' wish list all year long! As the deals start getting better, I keep a close watch on the items on the wish list and see what we can grab up!!
If I'm already scouring for deals, I may as well be available to help others! If you are looking for something specific, hit me up, I may have seen it or can just keep an eye out for you! Although, now that my schedule is all wonky, I make no promises!
Anywho, I guess my time at home now should be prioritized differently. Time to get laundry folded, dinner fully cleaned up, Bella in bed, check my menu for tomorrow, and make sure Benny is actually asleep (I'm pretty sure I hear him pitter pattering around back there, even though he's been in bed for over an hour). And then I can squander away my last few minutes online, checking out what I've missed today!
Truly looking forward to Shabbos tomorrow night. And my library books.
