Christmas is just around the corner. Can you believe it? There’s decorating to do (if you haven’t yet started), presents to buy, cookies to bake… the list goes on. If it sounds overwhelming, the good news is this. There’s absolutely no reason to panic! You still have time to get everything done with time to spare.
Remember, the key to success during the holiday season is organization. Keep reading to learn more. Oh, and to help you even further, I’m including a handy Christmas organization printable checklist for reference purposes.
December – Week 1
The first week of December is the perfect time to go into declutter mode. This makes it so much easier to get everything else accomplished. Donate toys that are gathering dust and clothes that no longer fit. There are scads of folks who’ll appreciate them.
Decorate your tree and put up all of your other decorations, both inside and out. Make a list of people you need to shop for (if you haven’t started already) and start working on your holiday menu. Any online ordering should also take place this week, as well as local shopping for non-perishable ingredients for holiday baking.
December – Week 2
Give your house a proper “winter” cleaning. Buy gift wrapping supplies, while there’s still a good selection. In addition, pick up any Secret Santa and teachers gifts you might need, along with extra batteries. (You don’t want to be battery-less on Christmas morning!)
Also on the list for week two is ordering your turkey, seafood or whatever specialty items you plan on serving for Christmas dinner. Start figuring out your dessert menu and the theme for your Christmas table.
December – Week 3 (Up Until Christmas Eve)
Shop for last minute gifts. Hopefully, you’ll find lots of stuff on sale! Buy all of your fresh food. Don’t forget milk for Santa and carrots for Rudolph and the rest of the reindeer gang. If alcohol is on the menu, make a quick stop at the liquor store.
To ensure everyone looks and feels as festive as possible, on the 25th, this is a great time to decide on Christmas outfits. This includes Christmas Eve pajamas if your family usually wears special ones for the occasion. No ugly Christmas sweaters allowed unless, of course, that happens to be a tradition too.
It’s almost time… the clock is ticking! Today’s the day to wrap any last minute gifts and to start cooking your Christmas day meal. Contact friends and loved ones far away, to wish them a joyous holiday.
Quickly go through your house and tidy up any areas that may need it. The same thing goes for any outside space where guests may congregate. To totally get into the Christmas spirit and clean at a slightly faster pace, listen to your favorite holiday music. It’s guaranteed to put you in a fantastic mood.
Hopefully, this information and free Christmas organization printable will help to ensure that you’ll have the most joyous and stress-free Christmas possible. The more you accomplish early in the month, the more time you’ll have to enjoy the actual holiday itself.
Merry Christmas to you and your family!
