8 Weeks to a More Organized Christmas: Tie Up Loose Ends

8 Weeks to a More Organized Christmas: Tie up Loose Ends

Can you believe there are only two posts left in this series before Christmas day?? Crazy!

This week, we’re going to focus on tying up loose ends! (Or in other words, finish the things we skipped over 😉 )

That means we’ll:

  • finish shopping for gifts
  • send out those remaining Christmas cards
  • bake delicious cookies
  • buy as many groceries as possible for Christmas day
  • finish decking the halls
  • do those holiday activities that you want to do
  • wrap gifts

What do you still have to finish?  I’ll admit, I have to get our Christmas cards sent out still!  I’m also waiting for some gifts to arrive in the mail so I haven’t started wrapping yet.  But, I like to do that all in one sitting while I watch a Christmas movie! 🙂

For fun, I’m leaving you with a link to Christmas music playlists and a list of Christmas movies to watch!

If you’re looking for some Christmas music, check out Spotify for some fabulous playlists that you can listen to 24 hours a day.
