It happens every year, even though you promise yourself that this year will be different. No matter how early you start preparing for Christmas, you always seem to have last-minute gifts. Does it happen to you? The tension builds, and what is supposed to be the most beautiful time of the year becomes overwhelming and almost not enjoyable.

It never fails; last-minute shopping becomes very expensive and a guessing game. You end up wasting your precious time because you go from store to store, walk up and down every aisle, and before you know it, you grab anything regardless of the price. In the end, buyer’s remorse kicks in, and the stress that you just went over your budget.
The reality is that Christmas is the same day every year. We have months to prepare for it, but the days slip away; as the anxiety builds and the days till Christmas dwindle, it becomes a real nail-biter.
To top it off, you are not even sure that you just bought the person on your list something suitable for them. Hence, another stress factor sets in; we start asking ourselves if they will like it, return it, will they have to waste their time returning it? All of these questions will run through our minds.
But beyond that, think about what giving or receiving unwanted gifts can do to our environment!
While the holiday season is a time of giving and thoughtfulness, it can also be a time of excess and waste. According to the reports Americans throw away 25 percent more trash than usual between Thanksgiving and New Year’s — about a million extra tons of garbage each week. This is not just wastage of money, but the wastage of resources used to manufacture these products or environmental damage caused by it.
That’s why we have TIWIW. If you have been using the TIWIW App, surely you have not wasted a single minute on this dilemma.
