Pickled red cabbage, mini marcipan snowballs or rice pudding? Hygge Christmas Planning, Flylady mission 14

Happy Thursday from currently sunny Copenhagen! Got a good start to the day with a cold plunge in my garden She-Shack! And I’m just back from running Errands (scroll down to see what’s on the shelves at our Danish supermarkets this week).

We are moving on to mission 14 of our hygge Christmas planning! Thursday is Errand Day in Flylady land but pick any day of the week that suits you/your family’s schedule. Tap below to watch right now…you probably want to grab a pen and paper, or your Christmas planning notebook. We are chatting about our lists and running errands!

Hygge Christmas planning

Here’s a look at some of the items that were on the shelves in the supermarket this morning. Pickled red cabbage in a jar is popular all year round but we eat a ton of it in the winter! Mini chocolate/marcipan “snowballs”, chocolate advent calendars, Danish butter biscuits… Of course, the Danes love to bake and make homemade chocolates/sweets in December but it’s nice to have some readymade ones on hand… My daughter loves the chocolate wreaths with sprinkles. They don’t taste that great but they are a Danish Christmas classic (and you can put a ribbon through them and tie them on the Christmas tree)! What do you need to pick up from the supermarket, ironmonger (hardware store), library, post office, etc this week? Check your lists before you head out the door so you don’t forget anything! See which non-perishables you can stock up right now (baking supplies, toilet paper, cat litter, etc) so you aren’t having to battle the stores before Christmas. The great thing about having our Christmas planning list is that we can see what we need and buy it when we see it on offer…

A plan to simplify your week!

The hygge planning missions are straightforward and won’t leave you feeling overwhelmed. 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 you don’t need a list to start: watch today’s 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 planning workbook which you can download for free here. I show you how to use it in this video… (Also useful for planning a wedding, Hannukah, baby shower, Ramadan, etc)
