START SHOPPING EARLY

If you want to have a more organized Christmas, shopping early is a must! I once shopped late for Christmas and it was so not funny. There’s always this great panic and rush that comes with late Christmas shopping and it sucks. Shopping early allows you to calm down, get everything you need and it also saves you the stress of last minute rush.

GET A CHRISTMAS PLANNER

I find planners so helpful. Oh my God! They always come through for me. Getting a Christmas planner is a fab way to get all your shit together as a Christmas planner will help you identify and itemize what you need and what you do not need. I got myself a lovely printable Christmas planner this year and it has been super helpful. It helped me put together a list of the things I need for Christmas, how I want christmas to look like this year and a lot more and boy! I’ve got my christmas all planned out just like that.

DECLUTTER

Ever had things lying around everywhere? Clutter brings confusion. I find it so difficult to stay in a cluttered environment. A cluttered environment leads to a cluttered and disorganized mind and people with cluttered minds are hardly organized. Also, a disorganized person cannot create an organized christmas atmosphere.

As you go along with your Christmas planning, it is very important to set a cleaning or decluttering schedule. Decluttering is an amazing way to free up space, make things look more organized, make space for Christmas decoration, etc and if you must have an organized christmas, decluttering is a great way to start!

CREATE A CHRISTMAS BUDGET

Yes you want to have a great christmas, you have all the funds and that’s fab but a christmas without a budget will leave you spending all the money you have. A lack of budget is one of the reasons people end up facing heavy debts after Christmas but a christmas budget will help curb your spending and it will help you spend only on the necessary.

MAKE A SCHEDULE FOR CHRISTMAS DAY

Making a schedule for Christmas day is super helpful. Christmas day is always filled with so many activities and it is normal to get caught up in one thing so much that you forget to do the other and stuffs like that but making a schedule and a detailed plan of the things you want to do on christmas day and the time you want to get them done will help you have a more organized christmas.

MENU PLANNING

It is very important to have a specific menu plan for Christmas day. Having a menu plan helps you know exactly what ingredient you need to buy, how much it will cost and how much time you will need to prepare the food. It is better to start your menu plan by deciding what type of food you want to have on Christmas or asking your family members what they would love to have for Christmas. Add the deserts, appetizers, side dishes and everything food you’ll love to have on Christmas day then calculate what you’ll need to buy and how much you’ll need.

These are ways you can have a more organized Christmas. I put these tips into practice and they always work for me! What’s your go-to tip for having a more organized Christmas?
