Holidays are over now--what will you do differently next year?

That is, what lessons did you learn from this year's holidays?

I learned that it's much easier to shop for gifts if you don't stick to a set amount for the gift. For example, I used to say, "I have to spend $40 on my sister's gift." If I found something I thought she'd like for $30, I'd get it, but then find something else to buy for $10.

This year, I didn't do that. I just bought everyone items I thought they'd like and wound up coming in just little under my entire gift buying budget.

Also, I'm going to cut out the pasta course from my Christmas Eve menu. Everyone was too full from antipasto to eat much lasagne. It was a lot of work to make it. Next year, I'll add a couple more appetizers and another dish to the antipasto and not bother with baked ziti or lasagne.

So what are your lessons learned? How will your holidays be brighter or easier next year?
