The Christmas List app is my savior. If you are as scatterbrained as I am, you would be looking for a way to organize your Christmas gift shopping too.
Last year was a chaotic and stressful shopping experience for me as I scrambled to take inventory of Christmas gifts that I had already bought and gifts that I still had to buy while trying not to get too far out of my budget. I was dealing with handwritten notes, bookmarks on my browser and printouts from my computer. It was less than pleasant and I knew for sure that there must be an easier way to do it.
After some research and recommendations from friends, I found an app called The Christmas List by limbua.com. The name really says it all–it helps you keep your Christmas shopping list in order. Apparently it has been out for several years (I can’t believe I am such a late adopter!), so the functionalities are quite refined and rich.
The basic way to use the app is that you can create groups of people you are buying for. For each recipients within the group, you can input gift purchases, ideas, stores, photos, budgets and statuses (To Do, Purchased, Wrapped, Shipping, Received, Archives) . But it’s way more than a bullet shopping list. Here are some advanced functionalities that make my life so much easier:
It’s definitely worth the price of $1.99. Also, I will no longer need to kill trees by printing everything out! Considered that I am planning to use it again next year, the Christmas List app really is a basement bargain price.
