Start your Xmas gift list on Google Spreadsheets!
Remembering everybody on Santa’s list while keeping in budget can be a stressful thing during every Christmas season. Fortunately there are technologies you can use to make this process much simpler. Using Google Spreadsheets, you can make a list you can access from your computer, smartphone, tablets etc. (anywhere with internet!) and keep track of your holiday preparation.
You will need a Google Account first (either a corporate email/other email registered to use with Google, or a @gmail account – most of you will have one or the other already!).

You can keep it as an online version to make any change and print it as soon as you’ll be ready to start shopping! Talk about #efficiency! For more #efficiency tips follow @jeffkee on Twitter!
