Updated on November 28, 2015

Hi My names Toya. I live in London UK and am working online selling products, blogging and writing reviews and articles like at Hub Pages.

How can you stay organised?


There are so many things to do over Christmas. If you celebrate it is a really good time of year as everyone tries to be happy and nice to each other generally. Christmas is a time of giving and sharing and there are a lot of things you can do over the holiday season to pass the time and enjoy yourself.

If you keep a diary of all the things you want to do and all the preparations for doing them you will be very busy over the next couple of months.

Trying to get ready for Christmas and new year can be difficult especially if you work full time. And if you do there are all the office parties to go to as well as your own family Christmas to get ready for.

Keeping a diary can help you stay focused and get everything ready that you need beforehand so that you can still have time to enjoy yourself.


How about making a list?

?How do you prefer to keep a diary

Make clear definitions

Here's an idea to help you manage the different things you have to do and organise:

What you can do is organise your diary into sections.

That way you will be able to do a checklist for everything you need and tick off each one as you do them.

It may seem like a silly idea but it is quite a good one really as if you write down all the things you need then you can be sure you won't forget anything and won't have to rush out at the last minute.
You want to try and enjoy yourself and go to the social events you want to or are invited to as well but if you leave the decorations and preparations until the week before Christmas you will be so busy that you will hardly be able to enjoy the holiday season and it will just seem like a rest and break rather than a celebration.

Make lists with different sections

Food
Decorations
Beauty
Menu
Indoor
Hair, makeup
Christmas Day
Outdoor
Nails
Shopping
Table
Dress
It's a good idea to group each individual ting you need to organise into separate sections, that way you can keep track of what you are doing,
