A Few Things to Keep Me Busy and On Track for an Organised Christmas (as if I wasn't busy enough already.. lol)

Over the past couple of days I have stumbled across a few great initiatives/challenges (I think they are challenging.. LOL) keeping people on track and organised for a hassle free Christmas.. Here are a few I will be trying to keep up with

The Organised Housewife's 'Organise Yourself a Merry Little Christmas'
Day 1 of the challenge started today and involved organising all of your parties/appointments into a Calendar/Diary (some great free printable calendar's on the blog..) Organise Babysitters (Unfortunately we don't need one as we don't have a terribly exciting social life here) and last but not least organise yourself a Christmas station which I am proud to say I did :)
And this one that I stumbled across about 10 minutes ago on The Mommyhood Memo's which involves decluttering your entire house by Christmas in 50 steps (how many sleeps there are til Christmas!)
And I also love the ideas that Bianca over at A Little Delightful has over at her blog for gift giving ideas! :) Although Im never that great at sticking to those limits.. but ill try a little harder this year..
And Jen over at Lovely Living Love the Life Your Living, has the most darling Christmas Planner Printable which is FREE! Along with other printables in the pipeline that are sure to be just as darling..
Jump on board and get your house into a decluttered, festive, organised state before the jolly fat man comes this year :)
