If you are brand loyal, there is a nice deal on Tide at Target.  You get a $5 gift card when you buy two select Tide items.

The 36 load bottles for $9.99 are included in the promotion at my store.  It works out to $4.74 per bottle.  That is a great price for this size bottle.  If you prefer Tide, I would grab it while you can.

Here’s how:

Tide 69 fl oz (36 load) $9.99
Buy 2 and Get $5 gift card
Use (2) $2/1 Tide Detergent, exp. 11/30/14 (P&G 10/26/14)
and Use $1.50/2 Tide Target Coupon from 10/26 Red Plum insert
Final Cost: $4.74 per bottle!

If you do not have that Target coupon, the price is still really good at $5.49

And reader Elisa found an awesome deal on Downy at her store.

Downy starting at $3.99
Use $3/3 Tide or Downy coupon from 10/26 RP- Target coupon
and Use $3/2 Downy coupon from 10/26 P&G
and Use $1/1 Downy from 9/14 RP- expires 10/31
Final Price: $1.65 each!

Please note that you may find some variation at your local Target but certainly worth looking for these deals at your store!

14 days to a Happier Holiday: Day 2 {The List}

10/28/2014. This post may contain affiliate links. Read my Disclosure Policy.

14 Days to a Happier Holiday

Yeah!  I am so glad you came back to join us in Day 2 of 14 Days to a Happier Holiday.

Hopefully this series helps to get everyone organized and to lift the weight off your shoulders this holiday season.  How great would it be to actually do the things you want to do with your family rather than running around and fighting the crowds?

Making the time to create memories and just sit back and enjoy rather than feeling overwhelmed?  Goodness I would love that!

So here we are on Day 2 of the challenge and hopefully this is another 30-60 minute task for you.

Make a List.

Boom!  I love me a list and I have one for each and every single day to keep me accountable and productive and not wasting time on things that don’t really matter.  ;)

So today we are going to start with list #1 and this is going to be a shopping list.  I would recommend doing this on two separate pages- the first list is going to be who we need to buy gifts for this year.  Some of you may have people on your list that you already bought gifts for– (well an extra pat on the back to you)  go ahead and include them in the list.

I have a free printable for you to jot down the list of people you will be shopping for- the kids, parents, teachers, friends etc… Put them all down on the list.  Once you are done making a note of everyone you would like to get something for, refer back to the calendar you made yesterday.  Go ahead and scan that to be sure you aren’t overlooking anything.  Some things you might overlook- coaches and dance teachers, hostess gifts for holiday parties, birthdays etc…  Let’s just get it all on paper regardless of how much you plan to spend on the person.

You can get the free printable Christmas Gifts Planner right here.  If you have a long list this year- you can get another version here with more space.

Now we are done with the first list and need to get started on list #2.  This is going to be everything you can think of that you will need to purchase.  We are going to talk about the specifics of grocery items for your holiday menus later.  Right now just focus on the things you need to buy in addition to holiday gifts.  Some things to think about include- gift wrap, packaging for homemade gifts, new clothing for parties, recitals etc…, decorations for the house, flowers for the house, your Christmas tree, holiday cards, cupcakes for the class party and on and on.  You want to just dump everything in your brain first and then go back through and check your calendar again for anything you might have forgotten.

And really try to be detailed here- if you need a new outfit for the kids for Santa photos this year list everything out- new dress for Maya, white tights for Ella, black dress shoes for Tyler and so on…   Do you want to pick up special PJ’s for the kids for Christmas or you think you might need new linens for Christmas dinner – whatever it is try to make as thorough and complete of a list as you possible can.

Now that you have your two lists organized we are done with day 2.  Try not to be overwhelmed if the list goes for pages and pages- we will deal with that too :).

For now give yourself a pat on the back for finishing Day #2!  Here is a quick summary.

Homework:

1. Create one list that includes all of the people you would like to purchase (or make) gifts for this year.  Include family, friends, coworkers, teachers, hostess gifts — even those you already purchased things for.

2. Refer back to your calendar for 2014 to be sure you didn’t overlook anyone or anything.

3. Start a second list that includes all the other items you might need to purchase-this does not include food for holiday meals.  Include new clothing for the family, decorations for your home, tickets to various events, items for any holiday travel, holiday greeting cards etc… etc… Make the list as specific as possible (i.e. don’t note- “new outfits for family photos” but rather jeans for Dad, sweater or top for Mom, sneakers for the boys and so on.)

4. Again refer back to the calendar to be sure you didn’t overlook anything important.  (I have 3 family birthdays in December so that can be the sort of thing overlooked.)

And now you are done- go enjoy the rest of your night and meet me back here tomorrow for task #3.

And if you want to follow along, you can continue to check in here daily or you can follow my 14 Days to a Happier Holiday pinboard or you can sign up for the daily email newsletter- just enter your email in the box in the top right corner (it goes out at 1pm PST daily).
