Can you believe it's October already? I feel like Fall is flying by! October is a big month for Baking, Fall Festivities, Entertaining, and Holiday Preparations. Here's my October To Do list for this year:

October is a great time to get a jump on the Holidays. Christmas is in 12 weeks!  I prefer to spend my holidays sipping Champagne and trimming my Christmas tree so I tend to get as much done BEFORE December as possible. It's so calming to go into December knowing everything is done, so you can just relax and enjoy the season. 

I know you're probably thinking I'm a little crazy to do all my holiday shopping in October, but buying gifts now is a financially savvy move. Columbus Day sales tend to be better than Black Friday/December sales because retailers don't mark things down as much during the holidays. The best sales left this year are happening NOW. 

It's shaping up to be a busy and fun month! How are you spending your October?

Happy Fall!
