Organization

Is it just me or does everyone else have trouble staying organized around the Christmas season? My online radio station is starting broadcast on the 19th of October, and it seems after that everything just starts going haywire. I am building a huge light display for my bedroom (which is very messy, keep in mind im only 17) and its very hard to keep everything organized.

Sounds like a lot of work so I could imagine things would be a little disorganized.

Everything does seem to get a little crazy here around christmas. I have tried hard to make lists of everything needed and have been trying to get it all bought ahead of time. I have also been making a calender up of when I will start doing certain things. I know that will change some but it at least gives me a general guideline of what I should be doing when. No matter how much I plan though it always seems to go a bit crazy.

Crazy does not work for me. I am a pretty organized person and I get most things done way ahead of time. I choose a few things to do during the holiday season and just do a few things extra with my mom when she asks. If I tried to do it all it wouldn't be enjoyed.

I can see that a light display in a bedroom would be a project that would take time and effort. Just try not to stress over it and take time to enjoy it.

It's a good thing that you've started early on your light display. That is one of the keys I believe to organization. I spend as much time planning and organizing for the holidays, as I do decorating, cooking, shopping, etc. It is a year-long process and is something that I keep in the back of my mind always.

The best way I found to start however is to only tackle one large project at a time. Several years ago I decided to write out instructions for how I decorate our home and photograph it. After this was done I tackled actually typing it up and organizing it into a binder. Finally I went back and tried to document where many of our heirloom decorations came from as well as when I purchased major additions. This all took several years and is an on-going project. Organization though is what makes it possible. Without it, I'd have chaos.

Good luck to you.
