Holiday Planning

Christmas is just 60 days away! Before you know it, the holidays will be upon us! Friends, family, festivities, outings and traditions; so much to look forward, but also lots to plan and organise. It’s so important to take time to prepare so that you can enjoy stress-free holidays with your loved ones! 

This is a 15 step checklist I work off every year starting now, and thought you might find it good to use.

  • Make a To Do list to take you through to the end of the year
  • Break it down into smaller lists - Food, gifts, cards, activities etc
  • Delegate tasks, and cheat where possible - buy your Christmas pud, don't make it!
  • Set a budget. Know what you have to spend, allocate and stick to it.
  • Do half as much as you want to do.
  • How much is enough? Keep it simple
  • Spend twice the time and half the money
  • Resist the pressure of too many invitations, too many expectations
  • Try and maintain a little routine - meal times, bed times, treats etc
  • Schedule appointments and dates further apart to allow for holiday traffic
  • Set boundaries and say no sometimes
  • Think ahead
  • Take shortcuts, don't do too much
  • Remember one stunning dessert is better than a few average ones!
  • Take some ME time - small breaks just for you

Ready, steady, enjoy!
