Diwali Checklist

Clothes- done- Fab India silks-They have considerably improved in terms of pattern and cut
Candles, diyas- done- got the dirt cheap wax diyas encased in aluminium foil that can be even floated- Rs 30 for a dozen. Anyone interested in the Auroville fragrant candles & diyas? They smell really great
Serial Lights- to be done- the older ones have been damaged courtsey the kids

Gold- Not done!! waiting for the prices to fall :(

Mithai- plans on paper- shall I buy or shall I make?

Final cleaning of home- to be done

Sofa & Dining Chair covers- changed! Finally

Crackers- to be bought
And the grandest of all-
What's your Diwali checklist?

Clothes-have some SS vouchers - still have to buy
Sweets - making (my mom!)
House cleaning - on Friday
Crackers- have leftover from last year

But Blobbie's arrival - very good news indeed!

Loved your list.

I too love Fab India but I recommend Anokhi and Soma too as they have several outlets around the country. Their cuts are very good too.

I too checked and found dirt cheap wax diyas. They can be gifted coz they are so well packed and look so ethnic. At Vaishali where I live, we can get a small packet for Rs 30
Serial Lights, somehow, I don't like them.

Gold- Not going to be done for many years:) The prices won't fall.

Mithai- Same here. My plans on paper- shall I buy or shall I relinquish temptation?

Final cleaning of home- Always waiting to be done
