Let’s talk about my procrastination skills for a moment, shall we?
Wait. Can I put off talking about them for a minute or two? Maybe three?
THAT about says it all. If I can put off doing something, I will. It has a lot to do with my early career doing large-scale software deployments. Everything was always on fire, so only the most critical things could be dealt with immediately. I became REALLY good at prioritizing and knowing what can wait. It’s a really good life skill! I swear!
That said, there are few things in life I hate more than needing to do Christmas shopping on Christmas Eve. I will go to every length possible to check off everyone on my list as early as possible. I pick up items all year round, even. But there’s this thing I do that sabotages the whole process.
If I know I’m getting someone something specific and I know where I can get it, I will put off the actual retrieval process.
So, when I decide on December 26th that next year I will get a bunch of people photo gifts? I don’t actually follow up on that until December 24th. Which is fine! Except that the range of photo gifts that you can buy and have back the same day has historically been, well, limited.
THANK YOU, WALMART PHOTO, FOR YOU HAVE FULFILLED MY PROCRASTINATION DREAMS.
You know those Chalk Adventures the girls and I like to go on almost weekly? Like, this one?
They make for AMAZING photo books. I know this because I made photo books out of the first year of them and gave them to pretty much everybody as a gift. Annnnnnd … I haven’t done it since. There’s something about having to sit down and create the book weeks before I plan to give it that doesn’t quite fit in with my procrastination skills. But! Walmart Photo has same day photo books available!
Sit down. Upload some photos. Select a template. Arrange a few things. Go pick up a photo book THAT DAY.
Oh, and there’s no paying a zillion dollars for the convenience either. The 8x11 photo books are on Rollback through 1/5/2016 for $19. They were $24, which is still rather reasonable if we’re being honest.
So! Family! Pretend to be surprised when you get photo books for Christmas this year!
Obviously, Walmart Photo offers more than just Same Day Custom Cover Photo Books. There are Same Day Calendars, Same Day Canvas, cards, ornaments, mugs, blankets, mounted photos, puzzles, and more. If you had to pick one photo gift to receive for Christmas this year, what would it be?
