Batten down the hatches, we are expecting a mini storm in Denmark tonight… But, whatever the weather, let’s keep things hygge! Day 4 of our early Christmas planning! It’s kind of funny to see myself in beige and grey in today’s video from 5 years ago…I’m so glad my life has become more colourful! (Nothing wrong with those colours, it’s just that they don’t make me feel alive!) Once again, if you are just joining us here, I’ll give a full recap of Monday’s post with all the details, Christmas planning checklist, etc after this short video! Tap to watch – and listen out for a fun fact about Uma Thurman’s Swedish granny!
And a wee reminder that it’s Errand Day in Flylady Land. Doesn’t have to be Thursday, choose any day of the week that works for you. But make sure that you get anything you need added to your shopping list!
RECAP FROM MONDAY
Woo hoo! ‘Tis the season to be organized, and the Flylady Christmas Planning Missions are here to help you enjoy the holidays (or ANY social event you are planning) without stress and without spending a ton of money!
For those of you not familiar with the Flylady system, it’s the easiest way to keep your home shipshape and clutter-free. We have a plan for balancing our homelife and our worklife. Less stress and more time to enjoy every single day! And I’m here cheer you on and help you add a bit of our cozy Danish hygge!
Think of these Christmas missions as your trusty guide to stress-free holiday prep. They’re straightforward and won’t leave you feeling overwhelmed. Our goal is simple: to enjoy the season without the chaos. And the best part? You don’t have to do it all at once. A little bit each day, and you’ll have a calm and collected holiday season. You can find my check-off list here (a Canva template you can modify). But – honestly, you don’t need a list to get started. Just watch my video, move your bahookie and start! (If you miss a day or two, don’t go back. Just keep moving forward! We will have Super Missions in December.)
The Flylady has a free workbook which you can download for free here. I show you how to use it in this video…
Here’s a quick rundown of what these missions entail:
- Cleaning and decluttering: keeping the house shipshape, clean and cozy
- Decorating: decking the halls and enjoying the process
- Menu Planning: stocking up on essentials week by week, creating grocery lists to avoid last-minute supermarket dashes
- Gifts: limiting spending, choosing clutter-free gifts, wrapping as we go
- Self-care: taking time to nurture ourselves
