Santa gets organized, making a list


The countdown is on.

Are you ready for the holidays? List making can help keep you organized – and sane – during the busy season ahead.

Make a list and check it twice

I’m a firm believer in making lists. When the winter holidays roll around, I make two special lists in addition to my regular grocery and to-do lists.

The first special list is my gift giving list. I start by listing names and then next to each name, I list gift ideas. I also make a list of the holiday appetizers, entrees, and desserts I want to prepare for my family and guests – and the items I need to purchase. I make and keep these lists in a small notebook that I carry in my purse so I can add to it whenever inspiration strikes and refer to it when I’m out and about.

Now’s the time to get planning
