NEW SERIES – Organise Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

 

This year has just blown by so fast and I have to admit I am not ready for Christmas. Usually I start organising Christmas gifts in July at the mid year sales, but as I have had a lot going on personally, my head just wasn’t in the ‘Organising Christmas’ mood.  

Did you know there are only 60 days till Christmas!! 

If you would like to be organised, have everything planned and enjoy your Christmas day you will LOVE my new series.

I will be running the ‘Organise Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ series from Monday 5th November 2012.  

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

I look forward to you joining me to ‘Organise Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’.

Thank you to Lisa from Life As We Know It, for creating my graphic above, it’s super cute!

You will need:

The Organised Housewife Christmas planner.  I will be referring to pages in the Christmas planner for you plan and organise certain tasks, such as who you will be writing cards for, creating gifts lists for family and friends, planning your Christmas budget and so much more.  The Christmas Planner is $14.95, 45 pages to help you be organised and be ready for Christmas.  Click here to purchase planner.  It is not a must but will definitely make planning and organising Christmas easier.

How to follow along:

Visit the blog each weekday from 7am (QLD time) to view each new task, recipe, activity, gift idea and more.  I will share links to the blog post daily on facebook and twitter.  

Subscribe:

I will add a link to the blog post to the Daily Task emails.  I will send the daily emails at 7am (QLD time) each morning.

If you can’t follow along daily sign up to our newsletter.  I will send you a summary of the weekly posts each Friday morning.  

Submissions for bloggers and online businesses:

Christmas Recipes and Crafts

I would love to feature some Christmas recipes and crafts from other amazing bloggers.  I will include a photo and link back to your blog post.  If you are interested please submit your post HERE.

Gift ideas

I will be sharing a range of items that I have found online recently which I think would make a wonderful gift to give to a friend or loved one.  I am also offering positions for online businesses to feature some of their products in the gift guide section.  If you are interested please submit your post HERE.

    This means it is also 27 days to my youngest child’s birthday and 40 days til the oldest one turns ten. Yes I am a totally ace planner. (It could have been worse because the oldest was 20 days early). So I am about to head into Party Planning mode. I am about due for stage one of xmas planning – telling MiL that it will be at ours.
    Thinking about getting the Bloke a WeberQ from the Fat Guy in a Red Suit. Yes/No.ReplyCancel

    • I got my husb a WeberQ for his birthday – back early Dec 2011. We’ve used it so many times – it’s fantastic! Cooked the turkey in it for a Chrissy gathering and have also done a ham (back last year). Since then we’ve done heaps of roasts -every type of meat. Also love it for cooking the families meat for everyday meals, especially during the hotter months when we all love to eat outside anyway!ReplyCancel

  • You bet, I so need someone to help m organise myself for Christmas EARLY instead of the mad rush one week before!
    Already purchased the planner!ReplyCancel

  • ooohhh i would have loved to have purchased the christmas planner but the postage on these would be horrific along with the exchange rate!!!ReplyCancel

  • Lisa

    Woohoo – can’t wait. Thanx Katrina. I’ll be up ready for 7am starts then!!ReplyCancel

  • Tammy

    Looking forward to it! just bought my planner, so ready to print and organise! Mostly have children 1+2 gifts, no ideas yet on hubby or #3 child, not to mention extended family!ReplyCancel

    • Tammy

      Maybe with your help, I’ll get my cards written and sent out this year. The number of Christmas cards in my cupboard is astounding – I buy them but don’t get around to writing them!ReplyCancel

      • I find that Christmas cards is my last priority at Christmas too and it’s usually a rush to get them out. This year will be different Tammy, you are going to use those cards you have ready and waiting for your loved ones JReplyCancel

  • Sharon Young

    Such perfect timing. I am normally very organised for Christmas but apparently with 2 children instead of 1 I just don’t seem to be as organised for Christmas. My mother-in-law gets here at the beginning of December so it would be nice to be as ready as possible by then.ReplyCancel

    • Hopefully you will be all ready by then, I have majority of the big tasks completed by first week of December.ReplyCancel

  • Gemma Lee

    I’m definately in for this one!! My MIL is coming all the way over to WA from ACT for Christmas this year so I need to be on top of my game….and with harvest and long hours for hubby in the header, and long hours for me because hubby is in the header, I definately need help!ReplyCancel

  • vilamm

    Bought your planner last month – can’t wait to get started!ReplyCancel

    • I’m really excited too, writing up this series and visiting the shops today, I am now in the Christmas spirit JReplyCancel

  • CD

    I bought last year’s planner but never got around to using it! Is this year’s planner the same or would I need to buy another one?ReplyCancel

    • No you don’t need to buy again, it’s exactly the same, you will find the 2012 calendars free in the shop for you to download and add to your calendar you purchased last year ;) ReplyCancel

  • [...] bright ideas and tools to get your organised for Christmas you should pop on over and visit The Organised Housewife’s Organise Yourself a Merry Little Christmas series, and then head to Planning With Kids for Nicole’s Christmas 2012 [...]ReplyCancel
