Keep Calm And Get Ready For Christmas - The Directory Group

Keep calm and get ready for Christmas!

Top home organisation tips from Benella...

This month, keep calm and get ready for Christmas!

- Prepare for extra food and drink by clearing out kitchen cupboards or garage space to use. BBQ tools and salad bowls can go in the attic until Spring

- Start adding one or two non-perishable Christmas food/drink items to each supermarket shop to help budget the cost:- Stuffing, crackers, napkins etc

- Prepare and freeze in advance any meals/canapes you can

- Ensure you book a food delivery slot close to Christmas

- Use local markets and butchers to beat the queues at the Supermarkets on Christmas Eve

- Prepare for guests - ensure guest bedroom has fresh towels and bedding and I always put miniature toiletries in a basket next to the bed

- Don’t have a spare bedroom? - ensure you have airbeds or camping mats and spare bedding for overnight guests to use or better still ask them to bring their own

- Start wrapping a few presents at a time early so it is not a panic on Christmas Eve
