Here's my to-do list for my January prep day, I was wondering if anyone could give me feedback:

1. Buy and download "Groundhog Day" for Groundhog Day/Candlemas.
2. Get new printer cartridge and print Valentine's Day cards.
3. Pre-order a dozen heart shaped whoopie pies from bakery for Valentine's Day.
4. Buy February birthdays' birthday gifts and at least one of their Christmas gifts per.
5. Clean out Christmas chest. [Just did that ahead of schedule.]
6. Set up Christmas chest in the closet.
7. Wrap and discretely label all gifts that have arrived.
8. Affix all Christmas card envelopes with return mailing addresses.
9. Address and fill out at least ten Christmas cards.
10. Finish first draft of Christmas short story (which will eventually, along with photos, go in the cards).
11. Buy gift wrap on clearance. [Half has been ordered, half has been delegated.]
12. Buy a round of stocking stuffers.
13. Finish writing up list of Christmas and Thanksgiving crafts, then write list of all supplies needed.
14. Choose Halloween costumes for everyone now, add that to the crafts list (or else they'll never get done on time).
15. Figure out preliminary guest list for Christmas dinner party.
16. Collect traditional cookie recipes for the big bake-a-thon ahead of next December.

For now, I'm keeping my monthly prep days to the third Saturday of each month. To get into the spirit of things, I'm going to have hot chocolate and homemade kettlecorn while I work, and intersperse my prep with Christmas readings. I've discovered I can get tons of Google books, pre-sorted, by searching for "Christmas" in books on Barnes & Noble and sorting by price.
