Holiday Countdown Planner {Week Five}

Stressed about getting ready for Christmas on time? You’ll love this 8-week holiday countdown planner with free printables. It’s week 5!

If you haven’t figured it out yet, we only have 5 weekends including this one before Christmas. If you’re someone who’s swamped during the week and Saturdays and Sundays are your days to play catch-up, I suggest making the best of them (with some down time, of course!).

Yesterday, my husband sprung it on me that he not only has one business trip before Christmas, but two. I’m used to him traveling, but December is not the best timing! I guess we’ll be power shopping and in full decorating mode while he’s around, and a few things may need to be scrapped from the to-do list. I say “oh well” as long as I’m surrounded by family and friends!
