Early November: Brainstorm the Menu & Presents »

This is the fun part! Think through what you remember of them, their hobbies, interests and needs. Flip through cookbooks old and new, and bookmark your favourite recipes. Jot the ideas down each time they come to you. Remember to take note of any presents they disliked from previous years or current allergies. Now is also the time to ask them for gift ideas!

Clean-up is quick and painless if you take it in strategic small steps.

Now is the time to use those cleaning solutions you bought from Home-Fix. Your house will be neat and tidy in no time!
