Today in the Christmas Countdown, we introduce the tool of choice for organized holidays: a Christmas planner.
Whether you're new to the concept, or have been using one for years, your Christmas planner is about to become your new best friend in the days and weeks to come.
Your planner will be home to lists, notes, ideas, recipes, decor inspiration, receipts, menus, inventories and journal pages. It's your personal record of the planning, deciding and doing that goes into creating the Christmas of your dreams.
Are you ready to get organized for Christmas? Will it surprise you if I say, "Me, either!"?
Welcome to the Christmas Countdown! I'm Cynthia Ewer, author of this six-week Christmas organizing plan--and like most of us, I come careening in to Day 1 of the Countdown firmly in denial about the passage of time.
Today's reading assignment pretty much sums up how I'm feeling: it can't possibly be time to start preparing for the holidays!
But time waits for no man ... or woman! The Countdown is here, and it's time to get ready for an organized Christmas.
Ready or not, what I can tell you is this: the Countdown works.
What do you really want for Christmas? More time, more joy, and less stress? Welcome to the Christmas Countdown! We're kicking off the 2017 Countdown this Sunday, October 22.
