Check out the printable lists on the above site (I won't be reinventing the wheel), however I will be sharing my progress and would love you to keep me on track and share your progress along with me.
I just need to find me a nice Christmas note book to keep my lists in :)
As I don't have a front porch (which is the suggested focus for the week) I will be concentrating on my front room which is a disorganised mess - mainly as it is currently the storage point for all the lego.
Front Room and the Front Room cleaning checklist (once mine is written I will upload to google docs or similar for you).
Print the Holiday Grand Plan calendars for reference.
Make the following lists:
Christmas card list - Decide how many cards are needed, which are we making, buying in bulk, ordering? Master List here
Menus for Christmas, New Years, etc
Long-term shopping list/ perishables / decorations/ Goodies - buying in a few every week saves a big splurge just before Christmas.
If you want to get ahead of the game there are more printables here.
