FROM GOODREADS:   Have you lost your Christmas joy? Does the thought of jam-packed malls, maxed-out credit cardes, overcrowded supermarkets, and endless to-do lists give you the feeling that maybe Scrooge was on to something? 

In Get Yourself Organized for Christmas, Kathi Lipp provides easy-to-follow steps to reduce the stress of the holiday season, including tactics for how to put together a holiday binder you'll use year after year, determine a budget that won't break the bank, gather your elf supplies, get your gift list together (including ideas for various ages and relationships), collect your recipes and prep your kitchen. 

By putting into practice Kathi's tricks and tips, you'll finally be able to fully enjoy this most wonderful time of the year. 

MY TAKE:    This is a fun, quick read that you can return to again and again, year after year as a reference and holiday checklist. It is very well organized and flows from one project to another. Ms. Lipp's sensible approach and excellent tips:

     "You can celebrate on the right day, you can have the whole family together       or you can have people be happy about it. Pick two out of the three."

Her checklists, mission statement and other advice is really going to make our Christmas a lot less stressful around here. I definitely recommend this to anyone who shoulders most of the holiday heavylifting.

Out of 5 JEWELS, I give it:
