What do you really want for Christmas? More time, more joy, and less stress? Welcome to Christmas Countdown 2013!
A calmer, more centered holiday celebration is easy when you simplify your holidays with the Christmas Countdown, a six-week Christmas organizing plan from Organized Christmas.
Now in our 17th year on the Web, Christmas Countdown 2013 begins Sunday, October 27. Won't you join us?
The Christmas Countdown is a free six-week Christmas organizing workshop from Organized Christmas. Written by author and Web publisher Cynthia Ewer, the Countdown has been online since 1998. Tested by hundreds of thousands of families like yours, it's a tried-and-true road map for an organized Christmas.
Countdown assignments, spread over six weeks, simplify the job of getting ready for Christmas. By breaking down Christmas preparation into small, easy-to-take steps, the Countdown gives you a holiday headstart for a stress-free Christmas season. We'll cover gift lists, cooking, decorating and fun--and you'll be ready for Christmas with time to spare.
During the Christmas Countdown, we'll follow a six-week organization plan from the October 27, 2013 through December 7, 2013. Goal: to complete holiday planning and preparations by the first weekend in December so we're free to celebrate an organized Christmas.
Each week has a special theme to focus Christmas organizing. Grouping tasks makes them easier to complete--and to simplify!
Working week by week, we'll zero in on gift-giving, take charge of holiday budgets, organize Christmas cards, plan holiday meals and decorate for the holidays.
Free prrintable checklists make it each to follow each week's assignments.
Over the course of the Countdown, you can choose from more than 100 free printable forms, calendars and checklists to build a personal Christmas planner.
A simple three-ring binder, the Countdown planner is the premier toolkit for holiday planning. It'll be your companion and guide to an organized Christmas--this year, and in the years to come.
Each day during the Countdown, we'll post reminder messages to keep you on-track for Christmas organizing. Daily messages bring a dose of inspiration, the day's assignments, links to checklists and printable holiday planner forms, along with recipe, gift and craft ideas for a jolly holiday.
Ready? Christmas Countdown 2013 begins Sunday, October 27. Mark your calendars and join the fun as we'll count down ... to the best, most organized Christmas you've ever had!
