I was more organized this time, we had a nice Christmas dinner in the dinning-room, with lots of food, a nice table with a red table-cloth, candles, little golden stars to decorate the table-cloth, Christmas plates, etc.
Santa Claus was able to leave the presents in the living-room, as he could reach the fire-place.
So even though I can make progress here, it was far better than the previous years.
I think I will to this again in 10 months !
I now know how much I am going to spend, and I have ideas of presents, so this time I should be able to buy everything in time—not on Dec. 24th.
I mean, I never had to do all my Christmas shopping on the 24th, but always had to buy 3 or 4 things on that day.
To-do list (November)
- Declutter dining-room since Christmas dinner in the kitchen is not an option
- Christmas presents: list of ideas + budget
- Make Christmas cards in November or else just buy them if I realise I won’t have time to make them
