The Gift List page for the Daily Life Planner free printables set has been a lifesaver for me! Now, I don’t forget what I bought and buy something else – I have a written record. You can find the rest of the Daily Life Planner free printables here.

With a large family, birthday presents and Christmas gifts can be a challenge to keep up with. Especially since I shop sales and buy gifts ahead – sometimes months ahead! It can be very easy to forget what I have bought. But, no more!

Having a gift list with birthdays listed and listing each person for Christmas presents, I now have an organized inventory of gifts.

Oh, they are all still hidden in my closet – shhh, don’t tell! But now, I know what I have!

On the gift list are 5 columns: Recipient, Occasion, Date, Gift and Price. It helps me with our budget to know how much I have spent on gifts. Buying gifts on sale often means the recipient gets more than they would have if I didn’t buy on sale. The downfall is keeping it all organized to know what I have purchased – but no more!

Using the gift list also helps me think ahead. When I find a sale, I can quickly look through the list and see what event I want to buy for and who could possibly use something I find.

Does having a gift list restrain my giving? Not at all! In fact, I have more freedom because I find security in a plan that minimizes waste and makes the most of our resources. I don’t buy gifts, hide them and forget them anymore!
