Oh, and I bought myself both a big desk calendar pad and 2 notebook type weekly organizers to help me with keeping track of things.
By the way, Target has black spot dollar items 75% off. And Christmas clearance is 75% off. I bought a ton of take out containers for next year, and a bunch of little stockings, and small giftie things at 25 cents. I keep a gift crate (used to be a drawer, but the stuff outgrew the space) of items I can dip into for giving occasions.
