Every year with out fail I find myself convinced that I will complete all of my Christmas planning and shopping by the end of August. It has never happened. In fact I usually end up finishing Christmas Eve. Do you remember me getting all optimistic about getting my taxes done early? Well I filed an extension and still haven’t completed them…. Do you spot a trend? I don’t. This Christmas in August thing is yet another goal that I will most likely not achieve but deliriously believe that I can.
Humoring my delusion, I have started compiling a list of online resources that will aid in my holiday planning. So now I can come back in the middle of December and reference them!
First up, Real Simple has a great little countdown checklist telling when to do what. I kind of like that brand of bossy. I need direction sometimes.
From Simple Mom there is a whole 12 week series breaking down all the chaos into week by week projects.
Project Girl, always has the dang cutest printables including this gift organizer.
Last, from the Christmas Your Way blog is a whole plethora of printable, from a budget worksheet, gift list to décor inventory (hahaha that is most likely not ever going to happen.)
Hey a girl can dream….
