Trust us, sitting down while details are still fresh will save future-you massive headaches and "wait, did we order 250 or 500 rosettes last year?" moments.
So grab your scribbles, wake up your inner data nerd, and channel that type-A personality one more time. Here are some ways to wrangle all the nitty gritty:
