    One thing I started doing to get prepared is to fill up my gas tank when it got just under half full. Prior to this, I would wait till empty and then I couldn’t go anywhere or do anything until I found a gas station, and sometimes would have to pay a higher price for a closer station. Now that I fill up at half, I am never in that situation, and I love driving around on a full tank!

    As always, great advice! I keep a stash of nice candles and a few bottles of “better” wine (NOT in our regular wine cabinet!) for hostess gifts. When a party comes up I don’t have to haul the kiddos around town to hunt a gift down the day of–more time for toenail painting :)

    I love reading your posts! The voice you write with is the voice you talk with and that just makes this much more fun.

    I do most of the grocery shopping at my house and I have learned that staying ahead of the curve on the staple foods is so key to keeping the rythmn with the kids. In fact, long gone are the Costco runs on mass quantity. Now its more frequent but less ginormous trips to the local grocer.

    I knew a guy who kept 2 gifts wrapped in his car during this season and one was a very nice gift and one was a so-so gift, and depending on the person that gave to him he would choose which one to give back. :) And, no, it wasn’t me. I don’t have the forethought to have any presents waiting in the car.
