‘Organise yourself a Merry Little Christmas is a series that will help you to have everything planned and ready for Christmas day.

Each day I will be sharing a new Christmas task to ensure you have completed everything needed by Christmas Day,  yummy Christmas recipes, fun Christmas activities. a gift guide with ideas on what to buy or make your loved ones and more.


Use The Organised Housewife Christmas Planner’ to help organise tasks throughout the series.  This 45 page planner will keep all your checklists, planners, budget, travel information and more together in one folder.  It is available as a digital download so you will receive it instantly after purchase and can start organising!

 Today’s Tasks:

  • If you are entertaining in your backyard this Christmas schedule in some time over the next few weeks to tidy up the gardens and patio area.
  • Have a look through your crockery, dishes and glasses.  Make sure you have enough platters, salad bowls, wineglasses etc for all your guests on Christmas day.
  • Make sure you have mailed all Christmas Gifts, by doing so today or tomorrow they should arrive in time for Christmas.

  • lol don’t think I will be getting out into the backyard today. Not after receiving 35mls of rain in the last 6 hours. Massive storm and it is still coming :)
    Will try to catch up on a few other tasks that I didn’t need to do until now. Like planning my Christmas cooking recipes.ReplyCancel

  • I love reading your blog and trying to get as much done as I can however I’m feeling a little disheartened at the moment as we got broken into on Monday while at work and they trashed the house so all the work I had done has gone out the window along with most of our electronics all my jewellery and 2 Christmas presents, some alcohol and much much more. I really don’t know where to start and it got me thinking do you catalog all your electronics and jewellery at thing if you get broken into you need to prove to insurance. I have some receipts and some manuals but I don’t have much for my jewellery and that along was 3 boxes worth. I was wondering if you have a system or could make one up for us in the new year the help catalog and organise it all cos I really don’t know where to startReplyCancel

    Hi Kat, this Christmas post has reminded me that it’s fast approaching. This year, our family have decided to have a “hand made” Christmas instead of purchasing presents. This is between us and the grandparents, and I’d love to make something worthy for my kids too – 8 and 10yo. It’s hard to impress kids these days with handmade stuff when so much is available and fairly cheaply too, so, I’m wondering whether you have any ideas or can share any sites for handmade Christmas gifts for Grandparents and kids too. :o)ReplyCancel
