Rather than waiting for December, keep an eye out for christmas gifts for family and friends year-round. You'll save money and be less stressed for the holidays too.
By being organized you have alot of free time at you disposal.
If you have too many clothes in your closet, turn all your hangers backwards. Each time you wear something, flip the hanger around. A few months later, you'll know what you don't wear and what you can donate.
