Holiday Planning CAN Be Easy, Really!

By Patti Cullen (aka "Obsessive, Compulsive Lister") Cookies

Tis the season! Actually it's been "the season" for weeks now. I'm pretty sure I saw a few elves setting up Christmas displays before the candy was even purchased for the Halloween trick or treaters. We blinked and it was Thanksgiving. And now our winter holidays are just weeks away.

We will be dancing like sugarplum fairies over the next few weeks with holiday celebrations filling up our calendars. But before we can raise a glass and cheer there are houses to clean, decorations to be displayed, gifts to be bought, menus to plan, holiday greeting cards to be mailed and lots and lots of cookies to be baked. Whew, the list is endless! (And yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus and he's making HIS lists and checking them twice.)

I'm here to offer you a little holiday gift. It's a great website I found to help get and keep you focused and organized over the next four weeks. A girl after my own heart has created a website called "Scattered Squirrel" that offers a scatter-brained approach to everyday living. I love it! You see, I am a "lister" - I create to do lists, checklists, shopping lists, gift lists, my own daily planners and calendars. This site saves hours of time as it offers a Santa's bag full of printables for the scatter-brained and obsessive listers. (I need more printer ink!)

Believe in the magic and go to this site for the best present you can give yourself this holiday season. Check out the Scattered Squirrel Holiday Planner and let the festivities begin!

Wishing you and your loved ones a holiday full of love and laughter!
