{Christmas Planning} Organise a little Christmas to do box

A few of readers spied my Christmas box on my hutch in the photo of our big tinsel candy cane asking what is in it.

I purchased the tin box from Target a few months ago.  I have put this box in a central location of the house for when I have a spare minute (hmm, rarity these day’s) I can write some Christmas cards or tags and complete items on my Christmas to do list.

In the box I have:

  1. Christmas Cards
  2. Christmas cards for the kids to give their friends
  3. An assortment of Christmas tags
  4. Baubles I plan on blinging up (will show you soon)
  5. Christmas marshmallow sticks, which I have plans for too
  6. Raffia ribbon, which is my preferred gift decoration

    I’ve got one of those tins too, I use it for my “Errand Station” on my desk next to the kitchen. It is sooo cute, looks much nicer than the wicker basket I used previously. Hmmm, now to think of a reason to buy another one on sale…ReplyCancel

    I went and bought 2 of those tins today… and the matching 3 pots on a tray… and 2 matching square trays! Not sure what I’ll do with them all but too cute and such a good price to pass up!ReplyCancel

    • ooh Malinda, I didn’t know about the square tray’s I might have to go have a look. Would love to see what you are using them all for :)ReplyCancel

    Always love your ideas. I have actually followed this one immediately! I too found the tin box for a bargain $6.21 yesterday! It is stocked and ready. I have also included self sealing cello bags to package baked/homemade gifts. Thanks for the tip!ReplyCancel

    • Great idea Marissa, you are one step ahead of me. We packaged some up today too!ReplyCancel
