Planning ahead this year can mean a major pay-off for my home come Christmastime!
Organized Christmas was recommended to me years ago, when T and I were first married. To quote the site, it's a "road map to Christmas in a clean and organized home." They have different plans to help you prepare for the holidays:
1. Christmas Countdown- a six week plan that helps you get ready for the holidays without a ton of extra deep cleaning and reorganizing. They break down seasonal chores into weekly assignments.
2. The HGP (Holiday Grand Plan)- the mother of all organizing and cleaning routines! An awesome series of lists and calendar printables with weekly tasks printed out for you. You print them out, follow the plan room by room...and before you know it, your home should be ready for the holidays! It even forges into planning for gifts, meal preparation, visits to make, and parties!
3. Houseworks Holiday Plan- this one is a whole house cleaning plan for the Fall season, but it focuses on areas of your home instead of individual rooms.
4. Rudolph Club- spread the work out over the whole year!
And it's all FREE! Wahoo! I know there are tons of organizing printable sites out there, but I love that this one is free.
The year that I tried it was hard for me to keep up with because I worked and coached a cheerleading squad, but the plan still looks easy to customize if you're willing to tweak it a bit. I don't have a garage or foyer, so I could skip those weeks and focus on other rooms instead.
So, that's today's PSA. If you're like me and still having trouble fitting it all in, I hope you'll check out the site and let me know what you think!*Get your party hats on!
