Throughout the year I compose an Amazon Wish List, that makes Christmas so much easier. Between family and friends who never know what to get the kids, or myself forgetting everything they see in a store or on television… this makes life so much easier! As soon as we get catalogues, or they see a TV ad or something in a store I add it immediately.

My children are at the age where they want to pick out their own things, and we do it together. They think the list we are making is for Santa!

Also Amazon usually has better prices than in most stores, as well as has FREE shipping with setting up a Prime account. It is worth it weight in gold, for for under $80 a year, shipping on items is FREE, & you don’t pay tax, love it!
