Holiday Countdown: Six Weeks to Sanity: Week 5

Week 5: Ship Shape

  1. Go over gift list and make sure everything but the easy pick-ups has been completed. If you were planning on making any gifts that are not yet done or started, make alternate plans and save that idea for another time.
  2. Prepare and freeze final batches of cookie dough and a few more meals.
  3. Plan a holiday card production party: sign, fold, seal, and stamp. Making it a family project will help it move along faster! Plan a great prize for completing the project.
  4. Finish decorating inside the house, make room for the tree!
  5. Order turkey, goose, ham or other specialty foods.
  6. Drop off holiday outfits to the cleaners; make any clothing purchases necessary to make it through the season.
  7. Stock up on bulk presents, for hostess gifts and just in case you forgot anyone. Wine, candles, serving ware, or fine oils and jams make thoughtful and easy gifts.
