Do you have a holiday collection? Do you have family members who wish to purchase another piece to the collection but don’t because they are afraid they will duplicate what you already have? This is a huge problem every year for my family. It doesn’t matter if the person’s collection is Grinch figurines or movies because with some intentional planning and a Holiday Collection Organizer, shopping will be a breeze when it comes purchasing for a holiday collection.
Christmas Collection Craziness
Christmas morning and the gifts are ready to be opened. Your family is anxiously watching you carefully unwrap THE gift they have spent hours working to purchase and wrap. You slowly open the box and pull out your favorite: a piece for your Grinch Village from Department 56. Sadly, the piece is a duplicate of one you already have so what do you do? Do you say something to all those excited and happy faces? If something is said, the Christmas magic will be gone. How do you break the news or do you break the news? How can you help your family so this won’t happen again?
You need a Holiday Collection Organizer
Thank goodness my family are great sports when they all realized they had duplicated some pieces in my collection; however, some families would not laugh it off. In order to keep this from happening again, I decided I needed to create a document for my collections. Then, each year as I put my holiday collections away for the season, add my new pieces to my holiday collection organizer, copy, and give to my family members. They know exactly what I already have, so they won’t duplicate. CLICK HERE to print your FREE Holiday Collection Organizer
