A Very Snowy Christmas - 25 Weeks For An Organised Christmas Week 21

Welcome back to A Very Snowy Christmas, 25 Weeks For An Organised Christmas!!

It's week 21 and with every passing day we edge nearer to Christmas. Hopefully, with the help of A Very Snowy Christmas, you're well on the way to being super organised, prepared and on budget!

This week we have a couple of things to do, including a bit of planning and a bit of shopping. 

First, we're going to buy wrapping paper, tags, ribbon and cards. I managed to get my Christmas cards in the January sales but I still need to get my special ones, which I'll probably get from Card Factory. I've already made my tags from old cards (see how here) and I've bought recyclable brown paper from Ikea. I also bought a huge roll of ribbon a view years ago from eBay, so when it comes to wrapping the gifts I've pretty much got my supplies. If you didn't get any in the sales and still need to make your purchases have a look for the best deals and discounts. Always check how much paper you get on the roll and compare it to large rolls to make sure you're getting a bargain. If you're keeping track of your spending make sure to update your lists and budgets.

The second job on this week's A Very Snowy Christmas is to schedule your deep clean, or what I call the Christmas clean, along with when you're going to put your Christmas tree up! This might seem a bit odd and you may think I'll do it when I can but if you've got guests coming, shopping to do, cakes to bake and lots of decorations to put up, planning when you're going to do both the Christmas clean and your decorations will stop any last minute panic or rush cleaning. 

That's it for this week. Pop back next week for week 22 of A Very Snowy Christmas, 25 Weeks For An Organised Christmas!
