Do you wait until the last minute to do Christmas shopping and activities? Do you feel frazzled every Christmas and wish you could just skip Christmas and go straight to New Year’s?

How to Use 30 Days to Christmas
1. Find a 1 inch binder (or pick up one from an office supply store). This binder will be your Bible for the next 30 days. Do pick out something pretty that gets you excited about planning Christmas. Also grab a set of dividers; a set of 5 should be fine. These dividers will help you find things quickly in your planning binder.
2. Print out the overview calendar and the daily pages. If you want to save time, send the print job to Staples and pick up your planning binder at the same time.
3. Edit the interactive worksheets on your computer if you can. Otherwise, print them out, too (or send them to Staples in your print job).
4. Sit down with your family’s calendar and make sure every single commitment is on the 30 Days to Christmas calendar. Don’t forget to include personal appointments for yourself. Making sure you continue to get in your workouts and other important stress-reducing activities is key to planning Christmas in 30 days.
5. Each Sunday, review the daily planning pages and make notes about what you’re doing and what you need. Do not feel you need to do everything. Do what you can, knowing that each step takes you closer to a peaceful Christmas.
6. This should have been #1: Involve your husband in your planning. Your husband knows you best, and he knows how well you function under stress. Plan Christmas together with him. Two heads are always much better than one!

I’ll be there with you. I procrastinated on organizing Christmas this year. I still need to pull together my family photo calendar and send it out to be printed. I have no idea what to do about our Christmas card since I have no group photo of the kids. I may end up doing a collage photo Christmas card again.
