Organizing Challenges Mini Challenges: Get Organized for Christmas it’s all about getting organized for Christmas this week…here are our mini challenges. 1. Day 1 - Make Lists. Don’t try to remember everything you want to get done this holiday season. Make lists. Just a few holiday list ideas are: Holiday Events List, Gift Recipients List, and Holiday Travel List. 2. Day 2 - Shop online first, in stores second. Get whatever online shopping you can get done first. You won’t have to wait in long lines, fight crowds, or search for parking spots. I usually buy more major gifts online, and then I purchase cute, small gifts (like those I’m going to give along with a gift card) in retail stores. 3. Day 3 - Tackle each person one at a time, using your list as a guide, in the stores or when shopping online.  Once you get gifts for a person, highlight his/her name so you know this person’s gift is already purchased. 4. Day 4 - Buy gifts around a theme. Instead of thinking up a different type of gift for each person on your list, consider buying gifts around a theme. For instance, everyone on your list this year gets gifts centered around the “Sleepwear” theme, like PJs and slippers. Another idea is a “Movie” theme...everyone gets a gift card to the movie theater along with a movie-size candy bar. Yet another thought is a “Reading” theme. Everyone gets a book, a book light, and a new mug to use when reading! 5. Day 5 - Make a hair/nails appointment. Remember to relax this holiday season. Let somebody else fuss over you, while you read a book, relax, and enjoy. It may be just the stress-reliever you need during this fun, but busy, time of the year. Make your appointment early! 6. Day 6 - Decide on your holiday menu. If you’re hosting Christmas dinner, decide what you’re going to make and print out any recipes. If you’re bringing a dish to pass, determine what you’re bringing and do the same. Knowing way ahead of time allows you to relax as Christmas draws near. 7. Day 7 - Use what you have. Rather than spending yet more money this holiday season, try to use up any supplies you have. Use up your supply of wrapping paper, gift bags, ribbon, and Christmas tags. Newspaper makes great gift wrap too. In addition, save gift bags and ribbon you receive…so you’ll have a bunch to use next year!
