Christmas season is not only the busiest but also a month of big purchases. Lalo na maraming sale weekly, we moms, are tempted to visit all those sale events and grab the best buy items.

I usually make a list of Zee’s items to remind me of the things we need to replenish, but when “momnesia” strikes, there were days like “hala, wala na palang diaper and wipes?!” (hehe!)
