    I usually have my birthday and christmas shopping done by August then for the rest of the year i buy a gift voucher every payday for woollies and it means i can have a massive food/alcohol etc shop for christmas without having to worry!

    I have 4 kids birthdays in January and use the july/aug sales and until christmas laybys for these as they are usually the most expensive!
    You just inspired me to do mine up on my phone. I have been so lazy this year.

    Do you have Google drive on your phone/tablet/computer?
    If you do can Create a document or scan one.
    It save it to all your devices and you share it with others if you like.

    Google drive is that little triangle.

    When you open it, it will give these choices. It will talk you through it. It is very easy.

    Bpac that is such a great idea! DF always tells me we can't afford to buy everyone presents but I always manage to get them something. If I did it this way I think he'd be much happier come Christmas. Do you wrap them all when you get them or just before you give them?
