Usually, there is so much to plan and organise for Christmas. Make this Christmas calm and stress free by doing a few simple tasks each day to help you keep on top of the holiday madness. View all previous tasks here.
Today’s Christmas Countdown Checklists Tasks are:
1. Confirm details of your Christmas guests
If you have guests visiting over Christmas confirm the dates they are coming and put the details into your calendar.
2. Sort through kids toy boxes
Christmas is always a good time to sort through the kids toy boxes. It’s up to you to do it with them or while they are not home. However, you will be able to see what is broken, what has been sitting at the bottom for a while and what they have outgrown. This will help you with creating Christmas gift ideas for the kids.
