  • I make a list......checking it twice......gotta find out who's naughty and nice.........Momma Claus is coming to shop!!!!!!!

    Actually I make sure I write a list.....just so I know whom I have bought for and keep tabs on WHAT I bought as well for that person.

  • I jot down the things they ask for .. and then if I see something I think they would like, I pick it up.

  • LIST! Every time I try to wing it I end up with not enough for one and too many for another.

  • I do make a list so that I can remember what to get.

  • I make a list. Then I make several other lists to keep with with what I have done and what I have left to do. It works great for me.

  • Lists are a must. We have 30 plus people to shop for. There is no way I could keep it all straight without lists.

  • Wing it. Probably why 1/2 of the crap gets little use :)

    This year I am grabbing all toy brocures and weighing what I want; circle it and add up.
