“Hey honey, what do you want for Christmas this year?”
I look up from my book and stare at him. “Um…I’m not sure. Just no more kitchen utensils. My stocking is always packed with spatulas and whisks, I’m overloaded.”
“Oh, well I’m not sure what to get you then.”
When Christmas rolled around, and I pulled another spatula out of my stocking I knew it was time to give my family a little more direction.
My husband looked at me and said, “I know, I know, but I didn’t know what you wanted.”
I wasn’t disappointed, but I could tell that he wanted to do more for me. He just wasn’t sure what I wanted.
So, I decided it was time to keep a list.
Every time I saw something I wanted, I opened up the Amazon App on my phone and immediately saved it to my Amazon Wishlist. I scanned barcode after barcode. Those little magnets for my bullet journal? Click. Scan. Save. Oh, look at those sunglasses! Click. Scan. Save. I forgot about that book I’ve always wanted to read. Click. Scan. Save.
From January until now, I’ve been quietly saving all the things, both big and small to my wishlist. Now that it’s Christmas again, I have a long list of things I’d be happy to have under the tree.
No more spatulas in my stocking! Bwahahaha!
Being a Mom means we easily spend money on our kids, but we often forget about ourselves.
I know you have a list of things that your kids want under the tree, but do you know what you want this year?
If your family struggles with knowing what to buy for you, it’s time to make a list.
Use the Amazon app like I do and save all the things. But if you need a little direction, I can help.
I’ve created a list that’s packed full of 100 gifts for every Mom, no matter what your hobby is.
Take these ideas and make your own Amazon Wishlist to share with family. Trust me, they’ll thank you for it.
No more Christmas day disappointments! Now, your family will know exactly what you want under your tree!
