Just three to five tasks and the Christmas Countdown continues…

Hello today is Wonderful Wednesday. For the next five weeks we will switch gears to Wonderful Wednesdays. The Christmas Project with our pretty (Christmas/fun sparkle) notebook and  the master plan of just three to five tasks.  How’s that going so far?  I just start decorating -it always get me in the Christmas spirit. Play some music and drink some hot chocolate with lots of whip cream. Love the mustache thing!

Day one

  1. Take a quick inventory of Christmas decorations
  2. Review your Christmas gift lists
  3. Look over Christmas gift closet (further details)

Get the idea-it’s that simple.

Every year I like to have fun with a theme  Last year all my men got

robes for Christmas. ( I do have to apologize for this picture but you get the idea.  It looks much better on  Instagram). I was so surprised but they actually liked them. This year- if you promise not to tell-they are all getting Hot Socks also looking for cool ties to match.

I do my shop early too.  Once the Christmas season is over I start shopping for the next year. Actually there are really great sales after Christmas especially.

Now on to the gift closet. We live a very old house built in 20’s. Back then people had very little clothes so there was limited storage anywhere. I shop all year for birthdays and Christmas.  Wow, that is a lot of presents. I was shelving them wherever I could find space under the bed behind couches you name it and it was there. Then when an event would come up I no idea where the gifts were  let alone what the heck I brought. God bless a wonderful pinner who posted it on Pinterest about the “gift closet” This save my life or at least my sanity. I know I am overreacting but omg this closet is just amazing I actually felt like I almost have it together- haha!

So here’s how it works. You gotta here this because it is just so simple. I honestly don’t know why I didn’t think of this brilliant idea sooner. Thank you again Pinterest! Find an empty space preferable a closet and put all your gifts and presents there. What is so cool it’s all in one spot. Then when that special occasion comes up you know where it is-literally- just wrap it and you are done.  Easy peasy!!!  One of my tasks is to take a quick check of everything.  I do have a log of everything I buy.  What would be kinda cool is to use a clipboard with a complete list of everything from birthday to Christmas presents. That’s it and enjoy.

I want to thank you for stopping by. It was fun and I had a good time. Just  out of curiosity does anyone have a gift closet?  Be in touch and let me know your thoughts or any questions you may have http://www.andwineknot.com or email dana2fly@comcast.net

Most sincerely have a very blessed Thanksgiving.

See you Soon❤️Dana
