This is our last challenge that involves planning, which is the core of a well laid holiday season. Today is the perfect day for adjusting our daily routines for the busy holiday season. Every day during the planning session, please add additional time in to deal with clutter.
Clutter zaps your energy and makes your clean house look messy.
DAILY ROUTINES ARE ESSENTIAL DURING HOLIDAYS
Daily routines are essential during holidays for busy families. Children need routines all of the time, but we the parents need it especially during the holiday seasons to stay balanced and sane as we spin plates and chip away at TODO lists.[bctt tweet=”Parents need solid routines during the holiday season to keep those plates spinning and their sanity intact. #holidaystress” username=”mommacansing”]
Today we are going to write down our routines, morning, afternoon and night. This will give us a place to go when we need a checklist to keep all the wheels turning efficiently in our super busy lives.
During this time of year, I add a 10 minute pick up session in the evening in addition to my 5 minutes or 52-pick up session every morning.

Here is my general morning routine
- Coffee, check calendar and emails
- Make Breakfast and lunches
- Wake up the little guy and get ready for school ( backpack is laid out the night before)
- Make Beds – It is a much happier day if we make beds together.
- Breakfast time
- Johnny to School
- Exercise and Shower
- 5-minute or 50 item pick-up clutter dash ( A short version of the 100 Clutter Club)
- 30 MINUTES of BLOCKED OFF TIME FOR HOLIDAY PREP
Everyone’s routine will be different throughout the day. Your routine should be a simple a list to keep you on track when you are overwhelmed with the season, family and work obligations.
