We keep it simple at our house around the holidays, well as simple as you can make three excited girls and holiday busyness.
How do we do it?
We have chosen to not let our things manage us! What does that mean?
That means less stuff!
How do you get less stuff?
Purge, donate, consistent reevaluation of the things coming into the home.
We're not perfect at it. Admittedly this year I haven't kept up with consistently moving things out when new things come in and I'm feeling like our stuff is managing us again instead of us managing our stuff.
All that fluff to say, we follow the 5 gift rule at Christmas, especially with the very loving grandparents!
Those 5 rules are the foundation of our gift guides. We set down with each kid and ask them wha they want, what they need/want to wear, what they Need and what they are liking reading or would like to read. I also added an activity category to help with extra curricular activities throughout the year, usually a gymnastics class, dance or could even be a fun outing they want to do. But LESS STUFF!
