My list of awesome holiday resources that I want to share with you has been piling up.  Well you know how much I love piles (blech) so it’s time I do something about that and share these with you (especially with Christmas less than two months away!).  There is quite a variety here and I’m sure many more will be coming out as the holidays draw closer.  However these are the ones I recommend to you today to help you get organized (can you say checklists and printables galore!) for the holidays in order to keep your sanity in tact and the true meaning of the holiday front and center.  It’s so easy to get carried away and overwhelmed with it all isn’t it?  I do hope you find these resources helpful!

Resources to help you get organized for the holidays:

1.  First up is an ebook published by Erin, the $5 Dinner Mom.  In this ebook you’ll find information on:

·         How much should you budget for your holiday meal
·         What things must you include and what can you leave out
·         Tips to outsmart the grocery stores and get the most value for your coupons
·         The perfect plan to have everything cooked using only one oven
·         And how to turn your leftovers into more amazing meals the next day

Plus there are 30 simple recipes, from side dish to main dish, dessert to appetizer, that will not disappoint your guests. And that won’t drain your budget either.  And some other FREEBIES bonus downloads too!  Click on the link below to purchase and be sure to use the code THANKS to receive 50% off the $3.99 price tag.

2.  Next is a workshop I shared about yesterday but definitely wanted to include here because I think Aby from Simplify 101 is fabulous as are her online workshops.  This month Aby is ready to help YOU get ready for an organized holiday in her Get Organized for the Holidays workshop.  It started yesterday but it’s not too late to sign up.  This online workshop is the ultimate holiday planning workshop. You’ll create a holiday planning binder loaded with holiday planning forms, checklists, and best of all, a customized holiday plan that focuses on what’s most important to you and your family. Then, learn how to weed-out and simplify your less meaningful holiday tasks, freeing-up time to truly enjoy and savor those activities that make the holidays most special to you. Plus, get simple tips and ideas to implement your plan so you stay energized and joyful all season long!  Click on the button below for more details and to register.

3.  The lovely Jennifer from List Plan It has once again started up her site 100 Days to Christmas and to go along with it an ebook by the same title.  This ebook offers a daily dose of inspiration and motivation to help get you through the busy holiday season. This ebook journey began on September 16,and leads you step-by-step and day-by-day toward a peaceful and meaningful holiday season.

4.   Is your Christmas a time of stressing rather than blessing? Not this year! It is possible to have a fun, relaxing and organized season that focuses on Christ.   Grab a copy of Karen Patterson Ehman & LeAnn Rice ‘s new e-book Untangling Christmas: Your Go-To Guide for a Hassle-Free Holiday. Simple and delicious recipes, doable decorating ideas, creative gifts, outreach suggestions and how to craft a Christmas planner to organize it all!  Available for $5.99.  Order before November 15th and you’ll receive a delicious Thanksgiving menu along with all the recipes FREE as a special gift.


5.   This one is a FREE ebook published by Jessica from Life as Mom called A Simpler Season.  This quick read includes Christmas ideas, recipes, and planning pages to help you create a custom-made Christmas plan for your family so you can breathe deeply and enjoy the season.

6.  Finally how about a FREE webinar?  On November 9 at 2:00 pm EST, professional organizers Jennifer Ford Berry and Susan Fay West are hosting “Have an Organized Holiday Season”, a free live webinar designed to remove the chaos of the holidays and put the season into prespective.  Jennifer and Susan will be answering attendees’ specific questions on organizing for the holidays, on topics that range from planning and maintaining a gift-buying budget to keeping track of holiday leftovers in the fridge.

    Thank you for this! It is never too early to start planning…especially if your doctor scheduled you for major surgery on Dec. 9th!

    Tthose California Wraps should go over well at my house. I guess you could say this week our MPM is “The Whatever Grandma Cooks Edition” since I’m traveling for work!

    100 Days to Christmas is simply amazing! I signed up earlier this month, and it has helped stay on track for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. I use it in conjunction with the lists at List Plan It!, and have my menu, grocery list, decorations and cooking schedule all prepared for Thanksgiving. I am also well on my way to preparing and planing for Christmas. I just love this time of year, and this year I’ll be able to enjoy every day with my family instead of rushing around trying to get everything done at the last minute. Yay!
