That is the question.
Did you know that National Re-gifting Day is December 22?
Look most of the time gifts are perfect. But occasionally there are those that just don’t hit the mark. Maybe you got a candle that you are highly allergic to the scent or could it be that the scent reminds you of something you would rather forget and you just don’t like the scent? What to do? Keep, donate or sell? Tis the season for giving, so would you re-gift it? Did you already re-gift it to your neighbor, child’s teacher or the babysitter? Are you sure you didn’t get that from the babysitter?
OK I am all for re-gifting. But there are some rules:
Rule #1 – Do not re-gift to the person who give it to you.
Rule #2 – Do not re-gift to someone who would know who that gift actually came from.
Rule #3 – Make sure you remove the card or gift tag from inside the box.
Rule #4 – Don’t keep stuff you don’t like just because someone gave it to you.
Rule #5 – Don’t keep stuff you can’t use just because someone gave it to you.
Rule #6 Don’t keep stuff you will not use just because someone gave it to you.
Clutter can sneak up on us. Clutter can come in many ways. From the sale of holiday decor or plastic forks unless you need holiday décor or are planning a large casual party you don’t need to buy it just because it is on sale. “Don’t need”= equals clutter.
Clutter overwhelms and can grow. The best thing to do is keep it in control by limiting the space you allocate for any specific thing. Also, a key to being organized is to have a place for everything and you will be able to have everything in its place.
So have you re-gifted a gift? Why? Did the recipient enjoy it?
