'Tis the Season . . .

. . . for this year's Christmas Countdown.

This is the third year I've implemented this wonderful tool. The first year I jumped in, set up a binder and did my best to keep up with the checklists. Last year I customized the checklists and accomplished more of our holiday projects than I often do, mainly because there was a plan. It was great! This year I'm all set and ready to go.

The focus for Week 1 is "Get Organized".  It's all about getting things in order and being prepared so when December rolls around, we can truly enjoy the important things of the season. Thanks to the work I did the last 2 years, my Christmas Countdown Binder is ready to go. I've customized it just a bit more, taking out a couple of dividers that I just didn't use, simplifying and grouping the forms that have been most helpful. I have already printed the new 2011 Countdown Calendar, and the Weekly Checklists that needed to be replaced. I'll be reading the recommended articles to gain inspiration and motivation.

You can go here to check out Christmas Countdown at Organized Christmas.  You can follow along with daily updates, plus download and print the calendars and checklists and forms they have available. The great thing is you can pick and choose what suits you and your family.
