Do you have the feeling that Christmas comes earlier every year? And I mean earlier in the shops? I think so too, but take it as a sign to get started on an organised, stress-free Christmas this year.
The trick is in the planning part – but everybody knows that. My background is German, and we celebrate Christmas Eve rather than Christmas day. So we have to be ready 12 hours earlier. Why not aim for that so you can have a relaxing night on the 24th and a good night’s sleep.
I love it because we are done and dusted when the neighbours are still busy putting the roast in the oven.
Just amend the details to suit your family’s needs.
Hang it up in a prominent place in your house and keep working on it, adding items and most importantly crossing things off – and tell someone that you are going to be very organised this Christmas. By doing this, you are accountable to not just forget about the list and you are much more likely to finish what you have promised.
