Wrap Up Friday – Getting Organized

Getting Organized
in Your Home and Homeschool  


There are so many directions I can take when writing about Wrapping Up Friday. We are wrapping up our school week on Friday. We are wrapping up our weekly Zone Missions. This time of year, we are also wrapping up presents. That is what I want to talk about today. When you buy Christmas presents, wrap them as they are delivered or as you bring them home. This will help you so much in the days leading up to Christmas. I know I have been worn out right before Christmas and had to wrap all of our presents in the couple of days before Christmas. Since I started using the Holiday Missions from The FlyLady, I have not worn myself out getting ready for Christmas. I spread out my Holiday Missions, and it makes it so much more enjoyable for me. This week, I spent a few hours with my youngest child building a gingerbread train. He loved the time with me, and I was not stressed about the things on my To Do List. I would rather make a few special memories with my children each Christmas than to have a marathon of activities that we can’t remember later.

Holiday Mission: Set up a wrapping station and use it!

Go shopping with your husband and have a date night. Mail your Christmas cards.

If you have not put up your Christmas tree, do that on Saturday.
