Amen to that, SparkleNana!
I don't think I've ever finished one of the plans, but it's certainly more than I ever did without them.
On the Organized Home websites, one of my favorite forms is the post Christmas debriefing. It's helpful to me to see what worked, what didn't, things I need to remember for next year, etc.
Case in point, I always travel to my parents' house for the holidays. Every year, I'm so focused on getting there that I forget to have some laundry done and a few groceries in the fridge for when I return. Now, every year, when I read back through my debriefing pages, I remember to do up a load of laundry before I leave. I also plan 2-3 meals and have the ingredients on hand so I have something to eat before I can make it to the grocery.
