Hello and welcome to week 6. The weeks are flying by but its great to be organised. Being a parent that works full-time I have to be on the ball otherwise I wouldn’t get anything done and my weekly countdown has been designed for the busy working family. A few simple tasks each weeks ensures you stay on track and keep everyone happy.
This week is Black Friday which over the past few years has become absolutely huge. Some dread it and some love it. In the past I have had some great bargains but I would never go and queue outside a supermarket and put myself through all that chaos. Most deals have already started so set yourself some time aside this week to spend some time making the most of these offers online.
If your planning a Christmas supermarket food delivery over the festive period then you need to get these booked in now. These slots fill up really quick and you can often pay a premium if you leave to the last-minute. Don’t just book the week before Christmas but book your inbetween too so your all prepared for New Years Eve. Just chuck a few bits into your basket so at least guarantee your slot you can add to it a little nearer the time.
Not sure about you but I am all ready into booking work and social events in for January and February so this week you need to grab yourself a diary or home organiser so you don’t forget what you are planning in. Scraps of paper just won’t do.
If you have younger children then this week think about getting those letters to Santa written. You can buy some really cute little packs that help get you into the Christmas spirit and come with stickers and stationary. I found a really great affordable pack Letter to Santa Pack, or why not do this through the NSPCC and support them with a donation too. NSPCC Letter to santa
Don;t forget my Christmas cleaning and organiser daily calendar starts from the 25th November and takes you all the way up to Christmas Eve with a daily task. Great to pop up on the fridge for the whole family to see and ensure the daily task is complete. CLICK HERE
