Organized 101Organize for Christmas: 59 days to Go!
Okay so the card list, how often do you get your Christmas cards and find come January they are still sitting in the office, on the dinning table or in a draw?
As promised here is the first of my Christmas ideas for preparing and organizing. Firstly lets look at getting the present lists and card lists ready.
Start by making a list of your Children, and immediate family, then add friends and members of your community that you buy gifts for. It's a time of year when a lot of us thank those around us for all that they have done for us.
Leave enough room especially below you children's names and partners. These will be the ones that you buy the most for. Work out what will suit each one, and the things that they would like. A great bit of advice is to actually start this list earlier in the year, as it means if you spot something in a sale that will suit, you can cross it off the list and put it away.
Now try to organize a day each week that you can spend a few hours or half a day at the shops to get through the list. Aim to work through similar parts of the list in each trip. So one day for the Children, one for your husband or partner, one for family and then friends. Leave yourself with enough time to pick up last bits etc. Oh and by the way, Don't Forget the Wrapping paper and ribbons.
In the next article I will put some links to wrapping ideas. Some simple ways of making things look amazing without a lot of work.
