I absolutely love counting down to Christmas, and when my kids were babies, I was determined to buy an expensive advent calendar.
It got to the point that I was calculating how many years we would use it, times how many days per year to get to a PER DAY cost so that I could justify purchasing one.
If only Pinterest had existed back then, I could have just made my own.
