Its hard to believe but the holidays are just around the corner…less then 100 days at this point. Now you are probably rolling your eyes and saying, who cares, you have plenty of time. But, I bet you have also run around at the last minute in past years.
So that being said, start by making a list of who you need to buy for. That will give you a general idea of the amount of shopping you need to do. The second list you should make is everything else you need to do: decorate, bake, cook, clean the house etc. It is the items on this list that often slip between the cracks and never seem to get done.
The final list you should make is a wish list. What do you WANT to do this year? See a light display? Make gingerbread houses? Pick a date on the calendar to make sure that gets done.
