Vicki explains just how she uses this, and I think you will find it helpful -- it may even have the potential to completely revolutionize your gift-giving. You can certainly personalize and tweak this idea so that it better fits the gift-giving that you personally do. Hope this wonderful idea is an inspiration for someone today!
[Edited to add: Deanna asked if there was a link to print this chart. I don't think there is; I checked back on some of Vicki's older posts labeled "organize" and didn't see one. She did write: "I've been using this method for almost 20 years and it certainly works for me. I create a table with a column for each person I'm purchasing gifts for. The yellow highlighted rows are for stocking stuffers. Since I took this photo I've also added a bright green and a purple row. One is for calendars, one is for ornaments. The pale pink and blue rows are for the grandkids' gifts. Each grandchild gets four wrapped presents."]
I'm going to try and check in with Vicki tomorrow and see if she does have a printable page she could share.
