Manage Holiday Online Shopping with Elf Names

Kate posted a nice little rhyme about Google Shopping Express the other day. I highly recommend that you try it out - I'm a huge fan. It frequently saves me a trip to the store on my way home for work. It makes Amazon Prime seem slow (at least until the drones are ready)

But back to the topic at hand - managing holiday shopping.

I do a lot of my regular shopping online (it is an indispensable tool in my working parent portfolio) and the bulk of my holiday shopping online as well. A couple of years ago I was struggling to figure out how to distinguish between boxes that contained presents and needed to be opened privately and boxes that contained prosaic items that could (and should) be opened right away.

Enter the Christmas Elf Name Generator to the rescue. With a few clicks of a button I was able to create a Christmas alter ego: Tiramisu Fizzyspice.

Now all of the Christmas presents I order are shipped to her name and everyday things come to me. This allows me to do a quick sort at the door so I don't accidentally hide my coffee in the closet.
