31days - Gifts; Make your List

Once I have thought through my budget and my motivation for gift giving, there comes a moment when I need to just make my plans. I cannot go shopping to just look for something for my mom. I can't. Well, I could, but it would drive me crazy.

When I go shopping, I know what I am looking for. The only exception might be when I say "I am going to this store or that craft show. While I am there I will buy something for ...." And that is very rare.

If I happen to see something for someone WHILE I am picking up what I have gone to the store for, then I will get it. I'm not all totally legalistic with myself. (about this. but that's another 31days series in the DISTANT future.)

So, as with all good things, it comes time to make a list.

The most important part of making a list - 
is making it
The second most important part of making a list - 
remembering where you put it

I'm trying Evernote this year. I can see it from multiple devices. I like that. And it's a new (to me) program. I like that too.

Where will you make your list this year?

Let me know how you like Evernote! I just removed it from my laptop because I never got around to learning how to use it. ;) I am trying keeping a list in my phone's 'notebook' this year, in addition to my usual spiral notebook. I usually use one small spiral for each year, for planning menus, gifts, crafts and shopping lists.
