Christmas Countdown -Week Two

We're working in the kitchen this week.  Here's the list of things to do:

  • Check smoke detectors on Monday .
  • Empty and clean out refrigerator, microwave and stove.
  • Wash down counters, cupboards and door frames.
  • Wash windows.
  • Clean ceiling fan.
  • Wash floor.
  • Divide Christmas card list into 5 groups. Write and address one group.
  • Do a quick decor declutter to make holiday decorations more impressive.  This really does make a difference.
  • Make a family wardrobe check. Fill in family wardrobe worksheet. Put any “To Buy” items on shopping list.
  • Perform a tabletop check. Inventory serving pieces, table linens, china and flatware. Will I be ready to set a holiday table? Does anything need polished?
  • Establish good health habits to cushion our family from holiday stress.
  • Begin Christmas gift shopping. Divide master list into 5 groups. Purchase gifts for one-fifth of the list. Wrap gifts as they are purchased. Keep a running total on the budget form.
And here is the form you need for this week:
