Today was hectic, as all days are now. The thoughts of all the things that need to be done are overwhelming. So, I decided to start off very simply in preparing for Christmas, because I know if I do too much too soon, I'll start to put everything off.
So, for today I found a large mailing envelope and labeled it "Christmas 2013". It will hold all my receipts, lists, addresses and other craziness. I put it in my letter holder where I will have to see it every day. Little visual reminders always help!
99 Days to go....
*** 2015 Update***: It's hard to believe I started this idea two years ago! After Christmas when you can't remember what you spent where, and what you bought for each person, this will become a lifesaver. If you don't want to start a new envelope each year, just sort through the old information in the folder, decide what to keep, and change the year. It's such a simple thing to do, but makes it so much easier to organize and keep on track each year!
