Staying organized throughout the holidays

Monday, November 17th, 2008

As the holiday season approaches, it becomes more difficult to keep yourself organized. By the beginning of December, it just seems like there are not enough hours in the day – from the end-of-year work projects to gift giving and party attending.  To keep the season from elevating your stress levels, consider these tips:

  1. Create lists. Write down all the majors projects you will need to tackle during these 6 weeks, such as dishes to prepare when entertaining, gifts to buy, holiday card recipients, and end-of-the-year work projects to complete.  If possible, divide categories into subcategories. For instance, your food preparation category can be further broken down into each instance you will need to prepare food, i.e. for the gathering at Aunt Sally’s house, get-together with the Nielsens, cookie exchange at work and bake sale at the local library.
  2. Use your calendar to record all important dates. Don’t forget to schedule time for gift shopping, food preparation (who doesn’t love holiday cookies?), gift wrapping, family and friend get-togethers, and the all important “use-it-or-lose-it” vacation days. If you have more than one calendar or datebook, now is the time to consolidate into one, as many time management experts suggest.

Top 3 Office Organizers

  1. Write-on Project FoldersWrite-One Project Folders – When working on a project, no matter how long- or short-term, I always accumulate a lot of notes, emails, papers and more that I need to go back to time and time again. When that happens, I take out a new Write-On Project Folder, label it with the project title, such “60th Anniversary”, and I am good to go. When finished, I can just file the folder away in my drawer, just like any other folder, and still have the label visible for quick access when I need it.
