Productive Home Holiday Organizing Projects

Many of us look forward to the cold icy weather so we have a great excuse to stay inside by the fire and watch movies.  However, the holiday season of 2013 has arrived.  My husband and I visited the grocery store yesterday, and it was a huge feeding frenzy.  The parking lot was full, the people inside were literally running to the next aisle, and everyone was in a panic.  I think it is funny to wake up this morning and realize that the roads are fine.  It is wet and cold, but the roads are fine.  However since I made up my mind yesterday that I would not leave my house today, I really don’t want to leave my house today.  If you are like me and you want to stay inside today, here are a few productive things you can do to make your life easier over the next few weeks.

Home Holiday Organizing Projects:

1.  Update your Christmas card address list or decide to go green and make an email distribution list for your Christmas cards.

2.  Clean out your refrigerator and pantry by discarding all the expired items and wiping down all the surfaces.

3.  Work with your kids on creating their Christmas wish lists to share with family.

4.  Clean up your computer or laptop by backing it up, deleting old files and emails, etc.

5.  Work with your kids on clearing out old clothes, toys and games.

6.  Clean out the guest room closet.

7.  Reach out and touch someone.  Make the phone call you have been meaning to make or write a letter to a loved one.

8.  Make cards for the soldiers that cannot come home for the holidays.  http://www.redcross.org/support/get-involved/holiday-mail-for-heroes

9.  Play a game with the family.

10.  Read a book or magazine for some quiet time.  (You deserve it).

Lastly, reflect on all of your blessings you are thankful for this holiday season.  This year, I am most thankful for my wonderful family that supports me and brings me so much joy.  I am grateful for my warm home, and for the family and friends I share it with.  I feel so blessed that I have a choice of stores to purchase food, and a place to cook the food and share it with others.  This holiday season, a portion of all of Configuration Connection’s earnings will go to the North Texas Food Bank.

Happy Thanksgiving!
