    This is a really great list. Some of those things I never thought about like the cologne gift sets and coffee sets. I get so caught up in stocking up on holiday decor and supplies that I forget those things. I try to stock up on wrapping paper and supplies this time of year so I’m set for next year.

    Normally I hit the dollar stores and stock up on gift wrap,tape and tags because they are practically giving them away after Christmas. I would much rather pay 1/4 of the original price then the full amount.

  16. Twitter:
    I love the idea to buy your New Years party supplies the year before. Might have to do that myself…unbranded with the current year of course. I also like buying organizational stuff…it always a goal.
