All I want for Christmas...

Continuing on our Jar journey.. har har.. While browsing around Target on my day off I spotted this adorable little cookie jar with a green holiday lid. So I scooped her up and knew right away what she'd be used for.
(Because I didn't take a before, picture this one with a green lid, and a tad bit smaller.)



Cookies? No, I'm just beginning with that area of life remember? Something better, something we need around this house with the wishy washy "I don't know what I want for Christmas/Birthdays" A Wish Jar.



Now instead of thinking about what I we want and racking my our brain; because it's truly hard--me this family? Want something? Now when I we think about it or see it in a magazine, we tear it out, circle the item and throw 'er in the jar. So when Christmas rolls around it's like a big list for Mr. P or I to choose from. Everything in the jar is something I/we like.. Basically it's a big wish list with the place to get it.. Much easier for those husbands who shop on Christmas Eve, wait what? Did I say that? Yeah mine doesn't do that either. :) Three months in advance all the time. Yup. Plus, it's not just Christmas colors so it can stay up all year and be used for Birthdays, need a gift idea? Go to the wish jar. Loves it.


Okay let's be honest here, who's noticing the lazy I (Get it) going on there. And, if you didn't notice now you do. Wow, I should fix that.
