Guest rooms ready for holiday guests? They will be, after we tackle them during Week Seven of the Holiday Grand Plan!

Holiday Grand Plan Week 6: Childrens' Rooms

Will Santa be visiting your house this year? Time to sort out the short stuff with Kids' Room Week at the Holiday Grand Plan!

This week, we focus on kids' rooms for deep-cleaning, decluttering and organizing so that there's room to spare for holiday gifts. We'll assess each child's possessions, record clothing sizes, and prepare a Gift Ideas Planner for Santa ... or Grandma.

Our holiday prep assignments include assembling freezer meals, working on hand-crafted gifts, and continuing to buy gifts and holiday supplies.

Holiday Grand Plan Week 4: Master Bedroom

We're moving to the master for Week 4 of the Holiday Grand Plan

This important week sees us move into the master bedroom to deep-clean and cut clutter, creating a serene and peaceful refuge for the busy days ahead. As the season changes, we'll rout out the closet and organize clothing.

Our holiday prep tasks center on home-made gifts, and we'll begin budgeting "to-buy" items week-by-week.
