My tried it is thinking ahead, way ahead. I'm getting ready for Christmas 2014! Who doesn’t love a great sale, especially 50-75% off? I visited my favorite dollar store and found all these great gifts for my students next year. I purchased enough for my class and a few extra items in case my class size would grow.
When I brought the items home I packed everything in a gift bag, now it is all ready to go for Christmas 2014! I thought the gift bag would be a good idea because the Christmas bag will remind me what's in the bag. I also added a note with all the items I bought. Now if you are like me - will I remember that I bought those gifts?!?!
