Christmas can be such a stressful time... there's so much to think about. What presents to get who? What meat do you want to eat? What about dessert? In what order will you visit family? When are you going to get time to wrap all the presents? It needs military precision... this Actimel video below pretty much sums it up, definitely take a look!
In order to #StayStrong for Christmas, I wanted to share my top tips for being organised at Christmas and not letting the pressure get to you! I literally just dug everything out that I have so far and surprised myself at how organised I am so I'm feeling ok at the moment. But ask me again next week when I still haven't ticked much off my list!
My tips to #StayStrong for Christmas
For me Christmas starts in October. It sounds hilarious but I have to start then to feel organised and make sure I have plenty of time to get everything done. Otherwise I end up running around like a headless chicken on Christmas eve!
Every time your child mentions a new toy they would like for Christmas, add it to the list. Yes, it may end up being 4 pages long, but that way at least you can choose a few things rather than racking your brains and getting stuck for ideas. This can also go for family if you hear them mention anything or point anything out in the shops or on TV adverts!
Wrap a few a night.
I hate wrapping presents so I never leave it all to do in one night. I prefer to do a few a night leading up to Christmas so it doesn't feel like such a big job. Either that or rope someone (ahem, the husband) in to help!
Order your Christmas food in advance.
We always order our Christmas food from the Supermarket so we know we will have some yummy food to eat and we can also work out how much we need. If you leave it to the last minute, you risk not being able to even get a Turkey or over buying and wasting lots of food!
These are just a few of my tips, I hope you enjoyed & let me know if you have any more to add! I can always do with more tips.
