The Holiday season is in full swing, and we know with that can come with a lot of lists and a lot of stress. This season we wanted to help take some of the organization off your plate with a Holiday Checklist.
3 Weeks Before Christmas
Mail Christmas Cards
Sending holiday cards is one of the easiest ways to let people know that you're thinking about them this holiday season. Be sure to pick up extra stamps when you're out picking up your cards and save yourself the trip to the post office during the busy Christmas season.
Finish Online Shopping
It can be hard to get organized early in the season, but with Christmas fast approaching save yourself the extra shipping fees by ordering online before December 11th.
Order Your Abeego By Dec 11TH
Don't miss out on getting your Abeego for saving holiday leftovers, giving as hostess gifts and stocking stuffers. Order by December 11th to get FREE GROUND SHIPPING within Canada and the US.
RSVP To Holiday Parties
Holiday parties are fast approaching, and RSVPing can end up on the backburner during this busy time of the year. Take a moment to RSVP to the gracious hosts and hostesses.
Finalize Holiday Menus
It may seem early, but once you have your holiday menu down, you can plan your shopping lists and have a feeling of calm.
Make a master grocery list
Now that you have your final menu you can create a master grocery list. I like to divide mine into two categories: perishables and non-perishables. Dividing your list helps you to be able to shop for non-perishables in advance.
Confirm Dinner Guests
Confirm your dinner guests or party guests. Be sure to ask about any food allergies, restrictions, and sensitivities, this way you can plan to have something for everyone.
If you haven't already, call your favorite butcher to order your Turkey or Ham.

Avoid the lineups and make sure you're well stocked for Christmas movie marathons and house guest. If you're enjoying some cocktails this holiday season, please be sure to book your taxis in advance or have a designated driver.
Confirm House Guests
Having some house guests this season? Be sure to confirm how many and for how long so you can stock up on a few special treats, like their favorite tea, extra snacks, and a few easy breakfast options.

Stock Up On Baking Ingredients
Baking is a fun and easy way to entertain children over the holidays. Make sure you're stocked up for all of your holiday baking needs and a few of your favorite holiday recipes.
Give your home a great deep clean a week in advance. If you have family or friends that pop by it's just a quick dust and tidy, and you're ready for guests.
Thaw Turkey (If It’s Frozen)
If you have a frozen turkey, be sure to thaw it safely. It's recommended to thaw your bird for 24 hours for every 5 lbs. Which means if you have a 20lb turkey, it will take about four days.
