[See Week 1]

1. Start Your Christmas Notebook

  • It may be a regular notebook, an accordion file or a clear book.
  • Insert/paste your Master Gift List and Holiday Budget
  • Make room for other stuff like calendars, pictures and more lists.
2. Make a Christmas Countdown Calendar
  • Take note of the bazaars this holiday season.
  • Schedule shopping trips.
  • In a few weeks, you will start to calendar Christmas parties and reunions. Avoid double-booking.
3. Create a Mood Board
  • Choose a Christmas theme for this year.
  • Start a set of tear files. Clip ideas from magazines. Print out pictures and articles from the web.
4. Inventory Crafts Items
  • Do you still have hundreds of those gold gift wrappers?
  • Tapes, tissue paper, cutting board, cutter, scissors, etc.
5. Make a Shopping List
  • Base your shopping list on your gift list and budget.
  • Decide whether you will make or buy the gifts.
