Beating The Supply Chain Issues For Christmas

November 22, 2021

It’s Thanksgiving week. And it’s one of my favorite holidays. But, there are no presents given at Thanksgiving. No pretty wrapping paper. And no trips to the store. . .or Amazon, to order gifts.

But, you might want to give it some thought.

Supply chain issues are going to make ordering Christmas gifts or finding them in stores more difficult this year.

I have a plan to beat them.

My garage.

Well, what’s in my garage. Piles of boards. Numerous wordworking machines.

This year, I again intend to build most Christmas presents from scratch. In the past I’ve made footlockers, names that could be hung on a wall. Shelves. Cabinets. I made toy cars. I made block letters for my grandkids. I made wooden building blocks.

So, if you intend to order online, you will want to do that soon, maybe even before Thanksgiving.

As for me, you’ll find me in the garage.

What’s your plan for Christmas presents?

Stay safe
