12 Days of Christmas - 6 Things On My Wish List

I still make Christmas lists.  They aren't nearly as ridiculous as when I was a child, but when someone asks me what I want for Christmas, I'm ready to tell them.  I'd love a no gifts at all Christmas, but John's whole family's love language seems to be gifts.  I figure that if someone is going to get my something anyway, I might as well get exactly what I want.  I know how much I appreciate when someone gives me ideas of what to get them, so I want to also make it easy for my people.  And I also like to be practical, being such a minimalist and all.  So here's what's on my list for this Christmas:

We're finally getting my kind of weather here in Chicago.  We have already gotten snow, but now w're getting the below freezing temperatures I love so much.  I think it's 20 degrees outside today.  I know I'm in the minority, loving winter and cold this much, but it's because I'm so well prepared every year.  Here's what I recommend for staying warm and still having fun in the cold:

We're all looking for ways to save big at the register. Well, I've found a way to make every coupon I use at my local grocery store worth an extra 25¢.

How you ask? It's as easy as 1, 2, 3:

1) Sign up at Swagbucks.com 
2) Head over to the Grocery Coupons page and start clipping coupons for your upcoming shopping trip 
3) Use the coupons the next time you shop at your local grocery store. You'll earn 25 points (25¢) for every coupon you use. 

That's it. But, that's not all... Today through Monday, December 12th, you can earn 2 points (2¢) for every coupon you print, up to 50 prints per day. That's an extra dollar every day just for printing coupons that will save you a ton on your next grocery store haul.


As we quickly approach Christmas, Swagbucks knows you still have lots of shopping to do, and they're offering big cash back for shopping online at several of your favorite retailers right now.

Just go to this page to see all of the deals available and get the jump on your holiday shopping. In order to take advantage of the cash back, just create your Swagbucks account when prompted (it takes less than 30 seconds) and then you're all set!

Your cash back comes in the form of SB points, which you can redeem for gift cards to places like Amazon, Target, Walmart, Starbucks, or get PayPal cash.

As a special bonus, if you sign up through me you get a 300 SB ($3) bonus when you earn your first 300 SB before January 1st. This site's a great way to extend your shopping budget, especially around the holidays.

I love organizing, well, everything, but holidays in particular.  You should have seen me packing up Halloween, everything is in labeled matching boxes and packed by room, to make set up next year a breeze.  I have a similar system for Christmas, but on a smaller scale since we just don't have as much.  Here's what I swear by:

For some reason, people get very stressed out by Christmas when they have a minimalist in their life. I don't know why, minimalists are very easy to shop for - we don't want anything!  That's the easiest way to get through the holiday.  But people still like giving, so I made a list of things to give the minimalist in your life.  (Providing they didn't already tell you what they'd like, which they probably did.)
