The Search for the Perfect Gift

How kind of my sis to build up the pressure to be her guest blogger. Really, I'm not a very good writer but I'm a pretty good talker and I suppose that's how I got into this. So here goes.

I recently took the StrengthsFinder 2.0 test and one of the questions was something along the lines of, "Do you search for the perfect gift or do you search for a nice gift?" There's no question how I answered that one, my goal is always to search for the perfect gift. This summer I found the perfect tool to help me find perfect gifts. I picked up this card file made by Real Simple at Target. Each person in my family has a page and other people that I frequently shop for also made it in the book. Whenever anyone mentions something they'd like or even their favorite candy or snack, I write it on their card. When it came time to make a gift list this year, I was all set. This card file is also great for my shopping list, to do list, and lots of other bits of information I don't want to lose. The cards are perforated, lined and color coded plus it easily fits in my purse. A special thanks to my cousin Amanda and Aunt Marlinda for introducing me to this great tool.
