“My New Year’s resolution is to get rid of some stuff because I bring it in and I can’t get rid of it.”

Spend some time in your kitchen. Make everything that you can make ahead. A cookie exchange is a great way to maximize your time in the kitchen and a cookie baking party is a fun way of enjoying friends and family while doing a holiday chore. Also, remember to get plenty of sleep and eat as healthy as possible during all of the festivities! Eat, sleep & be merry!
I love wrapping gifts while watching my favorite Christmas movies. It puts me in the mood and when the movie is over the presents are wrapped! Make sure you have everything you need when you start- gift tags, scissors, tape, pens, wrap, ribbon, etc.
Are the holidays stressing you out? Be sure to watch Birdie Brennan Professional Organizers and one of her clients talk to NBC4’s Mikaela Hunt about how to stay stress free and organized! It will be on tomorrow early early morning on NBC4 Columbus!
It is time to decorate your tree! Can you combine a neighborhood get-together with a tree decorating party? At least enlist some help from family and friends, put some Christmas music on and have fun!
It is time to think about your gift list. Can you buy online? Do you have to ship some of your presents? Also, think about giving adventures instead of things! Designate a spot in your home to put all the gifts. That way you aren’t stuffing items here and there only to find a missed gift in July!
Pull out your decorations and decide what goes where. Decide on your timeline if it is better to schedule an afternoon to decorate all at once or if you should do one room at a time. When you are done; do you love it? If so, take a picture and store it with the decorations to help with next year. Are there some that don’t make the cut? It is a good idea to donate them now, so someone else can love them!
Decide on your menu and start a grocery list. Remember to include any pot lucks you are attending. Also, group errands together by location.
Do you send Christmas cards? Now is the time to get your card list together, update any addresses and purchase cards and stamps. Set a date to have them in the mail so that you know they will be received before the holiday!
