Tips to get ready for xmas

Start Now if You Can
1. Now means any time you decide or plan to do something. One guaranteed way to create stress is procrastination. Do it or write it down because once written down it is out of your head (leaving your head clear for more great ideas) and theres such a kick in ticking off completed jobs. .....
Menus
2. Draw up menus for all the meals you plan to make over the Christmas holidays well in advance, including all drinks, breakfasts and snacks. Starting this task early gives you time to look at new ideas, search out Christmas recipes and change your mind or amend if circumstances or guest numbers change. .....
Recipes
3. Found the recipes you want, read the recipes, then read them again. There's nothing worse than realizing on Christmas Eve you are missing a vital ingredient, pan, or worse, you do not know how to do it.Choose or check recipes to see if dishes can be made in advance and frozen or how long they will keep once cooked so they can be prepared one or two days in advance. .....
The Shopping List
4. Shopping is one of the biggest jobs at Christmas, so to simplify the task make a master shopping list of everything you will need, including any new cooking equipment.Divide the list into perishable and non perishable goods including wines and spirits. Buy all non-perishable goods, wines and spirits well in advance as many supermarkets and shops stock them as early as October. Many online wine and drinks companies will sell wines in mixed cases and will recommend wines suitable for Christmas food so use their expertise. They also deliver, one less job to do.Order any specialist goods (perishable and non-perishable) well in advance and check if they deliver. Perishable goods do not need to be bought on Christmas Eve. Buy them a day or two before and store them in the refrigerator or a cool, frost free place. .....
Do not be Over ambitious
5. This in one area where many fall down by taking on too much to do in too short a time. Pull back and be realistic in balancing what is required in the kitchen and everywhere else (gift-wrapping, housework, kids and family).Christmas cooking and all it involves is not a time to start experimenting with new techniques. If you have never made bread, now is not the time to start. .....
Delegate
6. If you want to be a Domestic God dess thats fine but if you can delegate a few jobs peeling the potatoes, polishing the silver, whatever it will help ease the pressure. Surprisingly many people do like to help and share the fun in the kitchen so do not be afraid to ask. No one wants a frazzled cook at the Christmas table. .....
Buy Post It Notes
7. My kitchen wall is always littered with yellow sticky notes when I am on a cooking marathon. What time the turkey went in, when it needs to come out what time I need to put the Christmas pudding on to steam .....
Time Plan
8. Time spent making a time plan for Christmas Eve and Christmas day is time well spent. Not only does it help in organizing the cooking, it also organizes the mind and it is astonishing how many forgotten jobs turn up when writing a time plan. This Christmas Time Plan lays out the most important jobs and can be adjusted to fit with your menu. Do not forget build time for you into the time plan. Time to get ready, or have a cup of tea is as important as a perfectly cooked dinner. .....
A Few Jobs Often Overlooked
9. There are a few jobs that are often forgotten and will make Christmas cooking easier. Sharpen knives including the carving knife well in advance. Makes all the chopping, peeling and carving so much easier. Clean out the freezer well before Christmas - you can not do this job early enough. Sort the freezer out and make space for Christmas food to be stored together in one place. Rummaging through an overstocked, messy freezer, trying to find food can become irritating.A week before Christmas give the refigerator a good sort through and clean and make space for Christmas food - time for all the old jars and leftovers to hit the trash can.Time for a deep clean of the oven. Leaving this job until after Christmas will be ten times messier with all that turkey fat. .....
Make Time for You
10. This is your Christmas as well. You may have built time for you in the time plan, make sure you stick to it. Allow time during or at the end of cooking to chill out a little, get ready or have a drink. Merry Christmas. .....
Set and Fund Your Christmas Budget
11. Every year there is a segment of the population that simply charges their gifts on their credit cards and then spends the rest of the next year trying to get caught up on their payments. Before you do any Christmas shopping, you need to determine how much you can afford. From there, decide who to include and exclude from your list. To make it easy, try setting a per-person budget. For example, you'll buy $75 worth of gifts for each kid and $35 for each niece or nephew. You're much less likely to overspend if you've predetermined how much you'll spend on each person on your list. Don't forget to check it twice. .....
Start Making Homemade Gifts
12. Homemade and personalized Christmas gifts are the most memorable gifts you can give. Why? Because the recipient knows that you have invested a significant amount of your time. I often think about doing homemade gifts, but realize I do not have the time to complete a project. By brainstorming homemade ideas now, you are more likely to have the time necessary to complete the project. .....
If You Do Christmas Lists Ask People to Get You Their Lists
13. My family does lists, and my wife's family does not. If you do ask people for Christmas lists, go ahead and contact them now. Inevitably, there is going to be one person who takes their time getting a list to you. That's less likely to be frustrating if you have an early start. .....
Start Watching for Sale Items
14. If you don't subscribe to the Sunday paper, you might want to pick one up over the next few months. Set aside 10 minutes every Sunday to glance through the ads and coupons. If you find an item on your list, snag it while it's on sale. Otherwise, what's probably going to happen is that you'll run to the store on the 24th and pay too much on a gift you don't want to buy.Our personal goal is to have all our Christmas shopping done by the last day of November. That way we don't have to fight against the holiday crowds. .....
Get Started on Your Christmas Cards
15. Imagine how amazing it would feel if all your Christmas cards were ready to send by Thanksgiving would not that be a relief? Go ahead and set a target goal of when you did like to finish all your cards. Then create some type of plan to be done by that date. You could either mark off a morning on your calendar or do a little bit at a time. .....
Fill Up the Freezer
16. There are a lot of great meals that you can freeze ahead of time so you have food available when the holiday season gets really busy. One way to fill the freezer is to double or triple some of your recipes you'll be preparing in the next month. Serve a single portion, and freeze the extra portion. Another option is to block out a full cooking day where you make as many meals as possible and freeze them for the busy holiday season. .....
Practice Saying No and Offer an Alternative When Necessary
17. Most people I know spend their Christmas season busy doing things they didn't want to do in the first place. Start today by saying no to commitments you know will cause you stress over the holidays. If saying no is hard, then offer an alternative. I won't be able to , but it would work if I could instead. With an early start, you can survive the hectic holiday rush. I'm sure that in December you won't regret any of the time you've spent while the pace of life is comparatively slower. .....
Family photo
18. Whether it is for your family Christmas card or to frame for a gift to friends and family, get that picture taken now. Then shop around for the best price on high quality prints.Costco.

AllRecipes.com has step-by-step instructions for freezer jam, along with tons of other how-to articles to help you pickle, can and preserve your garden bounty. .....
Schedule December
21. Pull out your December calendar and mark your main plans for the holiday season; you will schedule around those days when things start to get hectic come November. .....
Learn a craft
22. If you love making things, you will not find a more useful or personally gratifying craft than knitting. It is quite the rage now. With only a few lessons you will be knitting scarves and hats like a pro. Decoupage is making a big comeback. Learn to dry the flowers of summer. Other useful crafting ideas include everything from scrapbooking to making homemade soaps and herbed vinegars.Start making things like homemade wrapping paper and tags for your gifts. Make gift bags by decorating plain brown paper sacks from the craft store or even the supermarket with sponge prints, buttons, ribbons, etc. Michaels.com, the website for the chain of craft stores, has lots of tips and tricks for craft projects, including beading, scrapbooking, knitting and painting. They provide links to patterns and how-to instructions for many of these crafts. Search the Internet for how-to videos if you need some extra help with your craft. Sites like eHow.com and ExpertVillage.com offer videos to help you learn how to do all kinds of crafts. .....
Favorite things baskets
23. Chances are you have seen Oprahs annual show dedicated to showcasing her favorite things. Use that idea this year to create gift baskets for just about everyone on your holiday gift list. You will need to get started early.These baskets can include your favorite newsletter [wink, wink], book or magazine, lotion or soap, cookies or cookie recipe, mixed CD of your favorite songs, favorite stain remover (Soilove!), favorite beverage, and so on. You will get it once you start thinking about it. The key is to stock up on all these items while they are on sale--and since they are your favorites, you probably already know how to get them cheap! .....
Give away treasures
24. Consider passing on an heirloom or family treasure to the next generation as a Christmas gift. Write up a paragraph or two explaining the history or significance of the heirloom to go along with the gift. You will be preserving family history and won't be spending a dime!But here is the tricky part: Unless a person has expressed a particular love or desire for said heirlooms and special treasures, do not assume your gesture will be appreciated. .....
Tie up memories
25. Compile a family photo album of all the old black and white photos you have of relatives. Or pick one photo that is especially good, make several prints, and have each print nicely framed.Interview an older relative and make a CD, DVD or even a written transcript of the interview for each member of the family. Ask about their childhood and young adult memories, family history and their perspective on historical events that occurred during their lifetime. .....
Give an experience
26. If you have a big extended family, you can buy movie tickets in bulk and save some money. AMC Theatres allows you to buy 50 movie tickets for the price of $6.00 each. If you go in with a few families on these bulk purchases, you could save quite a bit.Think about fun activities you could do with different people on your list dinner for a friend, reading night and snacks with the grandkids, and movie night with the grandparents, complete with snacks.One DPL reader stuck to her spending plan for the holidays by giving each grandchild under 10 a certificate that promised a trip to the dollar store with Grandma. The reader got to spend time with each of her grandchildren individually and the kids had fun picking out the gifts. In a recent survey, thousandsof school children all across the country were asked what they thought makes a happy family. The kids did not say a big house, designer jeans or video games. The most-mentioned key to happiness was doing things together.Perhaps the experience you give is what you do best. Give a gift certificate for a night or two of babysitting. Make coupons for a promised service like cleaning or teaching something new, or other areas in which you are an expert. You could give a friend a coupon saying: I will make and deliver a dessert next time you have company or I will keep your kids for one weekend while you take a break. .....
Back to school sales
27. If you have kids on your holiday gift list, make sure you check out the back to school sales at your office supply and department stores. They nearly give away some school supplies they are that cheap! And kids love receiving art supplies anything from new crayons to markers, paper, paints and stickers. .....
Debrief
28. With memories of the holidays fresh in our minds, theres no better time to create a simple record of what worked and what did not this holiday season. Answering a few simple questions in writing preserves the actual state of your household's holiday and gives you the information you need to craft a better plan for next year. Print a copy of our debriefing worksheet, and take a few minutes to answer the questions it poses. Next year when you begin planning for the holidays, you'll be able to avoid the seasonal potholes and repeat the years successes. .....
Take notes
29. A few quick notes now can solve many problems next December. While decorations, gift wrap and recipes are still around you from this years celebration, take inventory to avoid surprises next year. Whether you'll replace burned out light strings, replenish gift wrap supplies or recreate that great dessert recipe, a few notes now will set a straight course for next year. Better, post-holiday clearance sales mean you will save money Using our decorations inventory, eyeball your decorations and note any needed replacement decor items. Check gift wrap, ribbons and tags before you tuck the snowman paper into a storage box, and hit the sales to stock up for next year. Tear tried-and-true recipes from seasonal magazines, and tuck them into a page protector for future reference.And since a picture is worth a thousand words, circle the house now with a camera, and photograph holiday decorations. Use these photos as a guide for next year--and to remind yourself of whats tucked away in storage. .....
Start a gift list
30. Just after the celebration, its easy to remember which gifts were a hit or a miss. Was a nephew unexpectedly delighted with a copy of the latest Harry Potter book? Start a gift list now, and you will remember to add Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans candy to his stocking next year. A printable Christmas gift list form helps corral all those fleeting, Oh, would not he love a thoughts, and gives you the jump on next years gift list. Print one now to hold these last minute gift possibilities; you'll have a head-start when you start next year's holiday shopping. .....
Make a Christmas planner
31. First and foremost, everyone must make a Christmas playlist. When its snowing outside and everyone is sitting around the dinner table rolling out those pre-made, reindeer and Santa-shaped sugar cookies, listening to rap music or Britney Spears just does not have the same cheery effect. The best Christmas playlists include a variety of songs from different eras. Some basic suggestions: - Santa Baby by Madonna (a good pick if you can get past its creepiness) All I Want for Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey (my all-time favorite, judge all you like) You are A Mean One, Mr. Grinch by Thurl Ravenscroft (gotta get some movie soundtracks in there) Anything from Michael Bubles Christmas album (the mans got a Christmas voice) Notes, checklists and planner forms will help you get organized but only if you can find them! Solution? A simple three-ring binder creates a Christmas planner, a one-stop planning tool that will track and record holiday prep around the year.New Years' sales at the office supply store make it easy to set up a simple notebook as your Christmas planner. Click a set of dividers and a handful of page protectors into a good-sized binder. Add filled-in forms and lists, and as you see recipes, craft ideas, or decor inspiration, tear and tuck torn pages into page protectors. .....
Choose an organizing plan
32. Here at OrganizedChristmas.com, we know theres no one right way to get organized for next year's holiday season. Some folks love to think Christmas all year round, while others must be dragged, kicking and screaming, into the season late in the autumn. Thats why we offer different organizing plans to help everyone achieve the serene and stress free holiday of their dreams. Which one is right for you? .....
Buy/Build a gingerbread house
33. Pre-made cookies are not the only sugary good that define the Christmas season. Gingerbread houses also make for a fun family-bonding event. To clarify, I do not mean full-sized gingerbread houses. If you have the patience to attempt such a project and the self-control not to eat it along the way, then props to you, but I tend to go for the smaller, more manageable gingerbread structure. Even if the frosting does not mix right and the walls do not stay up for more than 2 seconds and in the end, you end up staring at a pile of gooey gingerbread panels that looks more like a stack of logs than an edible treat, you can say that you tried and thats all that matters. .....
Decorate Decorate everything
34. As much as I hate walking through the aisles of CVS in October and seeing decorations for holidays inappropriately far in advance, I believe its also important to stock up on these decorations for when the actual holiday rolls around. And do not limit yourself to decorating your house. Decorate cookies. Decorate the sidewalk with Christmas chalk drawings. Decorate your face with red and green makeup. Decorate your soul with the Christmas spirit. .....
Watch a Christmas special 10 or 100
35. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. How the Grinch Stole Christmas. A Christmas Story. A Charlie Brown Christmas. There are so many heart-warming Christmas movies out there, its hard to list them all. And do not even get me started on Elf. It would get its own number if I had room. .....
Create a gift list idea for other people
36. Receiving gifts on Christmas is only half the fun. The only thing better than the weeks leading up to Christmas is finding the perfect present for someone you love, whether its a gag gift or a serious item that they have been needing for awhile. Once you spot that antique typewriter that your hipster brother has been looking for, everything about life seems to fall into place. .....
Start a countdown
37. Countdowns can be a very powerful force in nature, if the New Years Eve ball drop tradition is any indication. They can both ease the mind (i.e. 10 more minutes until I can escape this English class on Medieval Dinner Plates) and incite anticipation (i.e. 2 more days until I can order my tickets for Lord of the Rings on ice). Advent calendars can also be an acceptable substitution for such events. A friend of a friend (definitely not me) mentioned that Neopets has a good advent calendar, but I do not know for sure. .....
Bust out the seasonal drinks and food
38. Nearly every respectable establishment offers some sort of special Christmas meal or drink. Mint hot chocolate. Pumpkin spice latte. EGGNOG. Then pair that with Christmas munchkins or candy canes and you have got yourself a meal. .....
Wear a Santa hat all day every day
39. Santa hats are like Ellen Degeneres. They make everything more fun. Quote me on that. .....
Volunteer to wrap presents and everything else
40. Present wrapping is a core part of the Christmas tradition, so volunteering to do it, either for charity purposes or to wrap your own, can get you in the holiday spirit. Wrap yourself in a sweater while wrapping a sandwich wrap and buying wrapping paper to wrap Christmas presents. Then when you are done, go to a wrap party that plays only rap music. Thats a wrap .....
Be jolly
41. This is perhaps the most important rule of all. In the end, Christmas is not about spending enormous amounts of money or spoiling your children,parents,grandparents,significant other. Rather, its about coming together and celebrating all of the good parts of life. The best thing you can do to prepare for Christmas is just be happy. Its the one time of the year where you do not have to hate on humanity (which is what I do 95% of the time). Take advantage of it. Its the most wonderful time of the year, after all. .....
