Before Wrapping Up the Holidays, Get Prepared

The week after Christmas and the week after New Years are the best time to buy your wrapping paper and Christmas cards for next year. Next year will come, so why not save money and be prepared?

If you still have money left, sometimes you can get awesome deals on non perishable gifts that may be marked down as much as ninety percent. One year my teenage daughter went to the store for a Russian Christmas gift, she ended up getting a present of bath stuff for every woman on her list. She paid only ten percent of the retail price. A thirty dollar item cost her three dollars that is why she could get so many gifts.

Get a bin to keep them neat until Christmas comes again, which is sooner than you think. You should probably wait until at least October to wrap them so they look nice at Christmas. Ephesians 2:10 reads, “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” If God takes time to be prepared, shouldn’t we?

Beware buyer! Don’t go overboard and buy more than usual or you won’t be saving money.

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
