I always write down notes to myself for next year, so I avoid making the same mistakes all over again next year. You will forget in a year!!! Last year I bough too many cakes, so I ended up eating them long into the new year. NOT a good idea. So this year I will buy less, and buy more if I need more. Also I decided last year that it will still be Christmas if I clean a little less. More important to spend time with the kids.
