have you heard of ?

A lot like the organized home site. there are fabulous craft ideas, recipes, and printables glorious printables!

they have a 6 week Christmas organizing plan you can read about it here.

there is so many wonderful things on this site. if there is anything you particularly like or find useful please post back here so we can all check it out.edited to add pics of my binder from last christmas. there are tons of pages from it I can use again this year like my address pages or my idea sheets for ideas for presents for people i may not have used from last year."

I am challenging anyone who wants to join in the organized christmas event on my blog

what does it involve, you need to create yourself a workbook either using the printables so generously provided at the site.
create yourself a space where you can stay organized and on budget.

see pictures of mine here

each week is broken down into small tasks for you to accomplish in order to stop the stress of christmas from building and overwhelming you this season

What do you really want for Christmas? More time, more joy, and less stress? A calmer, more centered holiday celebration is easy when you simplify your holidays with the Christmas Countdown!

The Countdown is a free six-week Christmas organizing plan from OrganizedChristmas.Com. By breaking Christmas preparations down into small, easy-to-take steps, the Countdown gives you a holiday headstart for a stress-free Christmas season. List, gifts, decor and food--you'll be ready for Christmas with time to spare.
Follow The Plan: During the Countdown, we'll follow a six-week organization plan from the last week in October through the first week in December. Goal: to complete holiday planning and preparations by the first weekend in December.
Six Weekly Themes: Each week has a special theme to focus Christmas organizing.
Week by week, we'll zero in on gift-giving, take charge of holiday budgets, organize Christmas cards, plan holiday meals and decorate for the holidays. Find each week's assignments at the weekly themes pages:
Daily Messages: Each day during the Countdown, you'll read an inspiring daily message on front page of our site. Daily messages bring a dose of inspiration, the day's assignments, links to checklists and printable holiday planner forms, along with recipe, gift and craft ideas for a jolly holiday.

Print A Free Christmas Planner: During Get Organized Week, we'll begin printing more than 50 printable forms, calendars and checklists and build a personal Christmas planner to streamline holiday cleaning, cooking, gift buying, and decorations. Use our printable pages to journal holiday memories, organize preparations and track gift-giving.
Christmas Countdown: Get Ready For Christmas!

excellent idea, not sure if I will join though, as I have to say I am ahead of the game for once this year.......well sort of.

One thing I do is save $20 a week year round in a box for Christmas, so I don't stress over the money side of things.

I don't miss that $20 a week, and its nice to know Christmas will be all paid for.

I'm in....I've had a binder for about 2 years now, it's nice to look back and see what I got from who last year, who sent cards, who I sent too, etc. This will be fun, I'm up for the challenge!
