forewarned promised you last week we’d be talkin’ the big “C” word, didn’t I? 😉 This week I’m gonna talk about beginning to plan for Christmas/Holidays and my game plan. (I’ll include my normal To Do list at the bottom, too.)
You do not have to talk about the holidays in your lists this week. It’s okay, you can heckle me and call me nuts for planning so early (don’t worry, I won’t tell you I’ve been buying gifts for months).
First, I want to share with you a cute website I found to help organize your Christmas. I like what they offer. Not all of what I found applies to me, however, I do like their organization style.
Another resource to use is FlyLady with her Holiday Control Journal . Very useful lists to help organize Christmas. Do you have any good holiday organization resources? I’d love to hear what methods you use, too!
Here’s my Christmas Game Plan, Part 1 – Begin Creating Your Holiday Notebook
My regular To Do list this week:
Today’s motivation – get ready for Autumn! It’s here, and the cooler weather is calling for warmer clothing. Get your closets ready, and fling open those storage units and closets and begin pouring through their winter stuff. Is it all the proper size? Do they have warm shoes? Do their coats still fit? You might be able to find things at a good price now before the super-duper cold hits, or find things from other parents who are in the same predicament as you are, and perhaps swap or get from them. Don’t forget to check yard sales, thrift stores, consignment shops, Freecycle and Craigslist, too.
Would you like to join us this week for To-Do Tuesday? Start with just a few things. Don’t over-do it your first couple of times. You’ll grow to become a list-a-holic later, start small now, though, k?
Just so you know, you can join us at anytime, it doesn’t have to be on Tuesdays – the list will go up every Tuesday for you to link to, but you can make your list and link to us at any point in the week!
Remember, with “To-Do Tuesday“, we’re attacking our to-do lists each week, blogging about our lists and what we’ve got going on, and sharing it with each other to help keep each other accountable. Everyone should come back here to link up in the MckLinky as the central “To-Do Tuesday Hub” so we can visit who’s participating and offer encouragement to each other throughout the week. Don’t forget to add the “To-Do Tuesday” button to your post, linking back to this post!
Let’s continue to cross items off our list as we go and help support each other in completing our lists! Don’t forget my useful HTML tutorial on how to effectively “
cross-out” or √ “check off” your items on your to-do list!
