Looking for an easy way to prepare for the holiday season? Welcome to 101 Days to Christmas! This light and easy Christmas organizing plan begins on September 15.
I'm Cynthia Ewer, organizing author of Web sites Organized Home and Organized Christmas, and of the book The Complete Idiot's Guide to Getting Organized Fast-Track.
For all that, I'm not one of those folks who was born with organizational abilities; I've had to learn organizing skills the hard way! That's why I'm pleased to bring you 101 Days to Christmas, a site designed to offer a daily boost of holiday motivation during the 101 days before Christmas.
That's what you'll find here: a simple path to an organized Christmas. Beginning September 15, we'll post 101 daily messages of Christmas inspiration, motivation and fun. You don't even have to read on the Web; you can follow our day-by-day holiday plan on Twitter, Facebook, or via an RSS feed. To receive reminders in e-mail, use the Google Feedburner form at the right of the page.
The idea is to make holiday planning short, sweet and easy. Won't you join me, as we prepare for Christmas day by day with 101 Days to Christmas? The fun begins on September 15!
Before going grocery shopping, plan a "cook's choice" dinner, designed to use up leftovers. Toss the last bits of assorted vegetables and meats into a stir-fry, or chop and add to soup. French toast for dinner makes good use of stale bread and the last few eggs, while lasagne transforms scraps of meat and cheese into a hearty meal. After dinner, toss expired foods and wipe down the refrigerator. You're ready to shop!
