getting organized for the Holidays!

It's official, Thanksgiving is over and Christmas (my favorite time of the year!) is just around the corner!  I plan to get organized for the Holidays this week.  Making a list of gifts to buy, putting up the tree, decorating the house and starting the many crafts I have lined up for myself to make (hoping they happen as my Thanksgiving crafts never did!).

Here are 3 things I will be thinking about this week that I thought I would share: 

Planning on assessing what I have and deciding what I need. 

How to decorate the tree?  Going the Martha Stewart route or the homemade ornaments, etc.  Bright lights or white? 

I plan to figure out who I'm shopping for, what's my budget and where to buy.  I love helpful printable list you can purchase here. You can use code IHEARTCYBERMON to get a 35% discount.

Just a few ideas to get you started this week- or maybe you're already done?

Who has their shopping done & tree up?  


  1. Great things to think about! It's amazing how much preparation is sometimes involved!

  2. Two presents left go buy and some ribbon. I just want to be able up enjoy the holidays. I'm so pleased that I do a list just like you showed.

  3. I'm always afraid if I start shopping really early then people will wind up buying the stuff for themselves that i bought for them...or maybe that's just my excuse for being lazy :-)

  4. Does having a signature wrap and boxes for baked treats count? I have to start baking and making my lists. My tree....not up yet, after all it is not even December.

  5. My tree is up but I haven't even thought about shopping yet! I have a feeling Christmas will be here before we know it!

  6. The shopping is done, and gifts are wrapped(except the handful that are still shipping,) but the tree won't go up til this weekend. The weekend after the Thanksgiving weekend is always reserved for the "tree hunt."

    Love that fringed dress in the first pic! Very festive! Thanks for sharing.

  7. My tree is up, but still not decorated; and I definitely don't have my shopping done! Haha! :)

  8. I need to work on my holiday organization pronto!

  9. I am always ahead on christmas. I start shopping early and try to finish in early December so I can relax and enjoy the holidays.
