CLOSE and buy your child’s Christmas gift is just one of many steps parents take to give their child a magical Christmas.
But to keep it magical, parents are always trying to find new hiding places for gifts so kids don’t find out what they’ve got before Christmas Day.
But one problem many parents face after hiding gifts is remembering where they hid them or what they bought them for.
Luckily, one TikTok mom who came up with a genius solution, Taryn Meek, posted the video to her account, t8rynitup, where it has been viewed more than a million times.
Taryn, is a mother of 6 and explains that shopping is hard for all of them, her husband, her extended family and friends while keeping everything organized.
She explained: “I bought this and hid it and couldn’t find it myself.
“This system should fix it.”
Bored with disorganization, this year Taryn decided to create an organization system that would make it easier to hide and wrap presents.
She bought several boxes and explained that each was a child’s gift and began dividing different gifts into boxes.
Taryn said she hopes this will also help her budget because she often goes out of her way to give gifts.
To avoid going over their budget, the couple came up with a solution and bought gifts for their children based on six rules they came up with together.
Each gift should be associated with; something to play with, something to learn, something to wear, something to read, something they want, something they need, and something for fun.
This way, Taryn can make sure each child gets the same amount of items, she can remember whose belongs to whom, and she remembers where she kept them.
This app user loves her idea, one person writing: “I love this thank you I have seven kids I need to buy this is going to be so much easier now thanks you, thank you.”
Another user commented: “I always forget where I hide them. This is great because I have an attic and they can’t go up.”
A third user replied: “OMG I love this idea!! will definitely use it for next year! Thanks for sharing.”
