A Better Organised Christmas — 4 Weeks to Go

A weekly checklist that can be used as a guide to keep us all on track through the festive season. This week it’s time to get festive food organised!

Diary Organisation

  • Last recommended posting dates for international mail start this week, so ideally aim to have any overseas mail in the post by now
  • Schedule an evening next week for present-wrapping

At Home

  • Confirm numbers for Christmas dinner
  • Do a menu plan and make a shopping list
  • Check decorations to see if any need repaired or replaced
  • Final check of gift list for anything still to be ordered/purchased


  • Order presents online (A Better Organised Home in 30 Days makes an ideal stocking filler!)
  • Place food order (remember to include nibbles, canapes, sweet treats, mince pies, stollen, Christmas cake & pudding, brandy butter, frozen veg & puds)

Out & About

  • Buy any gifts that aren’t being ordered online
  • Pick up a couple of hospitality gifts i.e. shortbread, wine
  • Buy non-perishable food/drink items, including alcohol, mixers and soft drinks
  • When doing the weekly shop, pop a few items in the supermarket’s food bank trolley
  • Post international cards

Breaking Christmas prep into small, manageable chunks works well. Pick and choose from the items listed above, spread what needs done across the week and by next weekend you’ll be well on the way to a Better Organised Christmas — and part 4 in this countdown series!
