12 Days of Christmas: Last-Minute Shopping and Preparation

By December 23, 2010

On the 11th day of Christmas, my About guide gave to me: a checklist to ensure some carefree festivity...

We're almost there! Time to finish any last-minute shopping and clean up the house (or pack your bags) for the Christmas holiday. Also on the checklist:

  • Finalize any arrangements for winter break activities that will keep your kids active and out of the house.
  • Make sure you have all needed ingredients for your planned menus and any holiday potlucks that you plan to attend.
  • Wrap any remaining gifts or stocking stuffers and plan clothes for any upcoming parties.

Are you with me in still having a few tasks left to do for the holidays? What keeps you organized and free to enjoy the festivities?
