I have to admit that the crisp air has already made me crave snow. I'm super excited about all the holiday parties and get-togethers. But, I'm also quite excited about the holiday shopping.
Now, the shopping is probably the part that will get me in trouble. I know I shouldn't even be thinking about it, considering that my funds are unbelievably low right now. But, as you'll see from my Holiday Shopping Calendar, there are some amazing events taking place.
For the most part, I'm going to limit myself to 3 events that are consistently fruitful in the gift-giving arena. In chronological order, I am planning to hit up:
- Bazaar Bizarre on Sunday, December 5th (I already bought an early bird ticket)
- SOWA Holiday Market on Saturday or Sunday, December 11th or 12th
- Cultural Survival Bazaar on the weekend of Friday, December 17th
I promise that I will try not to overdo it when I attend these events. I will make my rounds, and then I will purchase. I can't make any promises on any cute things that I want to keep for myself, though. *grin*
Otherwise, I have worked on creating another Holiday Survival Plan that shouldn't cost me much of anything. It mainly involves listening to holiday music (which I'll admit I started listening to the week before Thanksgiving), hilarious and uplifting movies, and generally keeping cozy.
I'm really looking forward to the holidays, with all the merriment, togetherness, and cheer. Even though it's going to be a bit of a challenge to not grab up every cute item I come across, I'm feeling quite confident about my Holiday Survival Plan.
