100 Days to Christmas 2015  

 

Introduction

100 Days to Christmas got its start in 2009, when it launched as a blog with
daily posts of inspiration for the busy holiday season. Two years later, it
expanded to an eBook format, where buyers could download the entire 100
days in one tidy packet. This is the fifth year that the 100 Days to
Christmas eBook has been available to an enthusiastic community. I love
this time of year and love sharing my plan and vision for the holiday season
to come.

In this eBook, you will find inspiration for accomplishing daily tasks, setting
goals, and offering encouragement during a busy time of year. With the
help of additional resources from ListPlanIt.com, followers of
100DaystoChristmas.com have a chance to print or download useful lists and
planning pages to assist in their holiday planning.

The 100 Days to Christmas 2015 eBook has everything you need for a stepby-step guide to your holiday planning.

Plus, it includes planning

consideration and further motivation through a series of major holidays
leading up to Christmas.

100 Days to Christmas 2015  

 

September 16

CREATE A HOLIDAY HUB
Welcome to “100 Days to Christmas” where you
will find a daily dose of inspiration and motivation
to help you get ahead so that you can relax
through the busy holiday season knowing that you
are more prepared than ever! This time of year hosts several major holidays
and special occasions. Part of being ready for Christmas is knowing how to
give yourself plenty of time to focus on the holiday at hand while still looking
at the larger picture.

If you tell yourself every year that you are going to be more on the ball
through the holidays the next year, then you are in the right place! If you
usually start early enough but hope to find some new ideas to add to old
traditions, then you have also come to the right place. If you want to share
your holiday goals and accomplishments with friends, then welcome!

Are you ready to get started? Are you willing
to accept the Countdown to Christmas
Challenge? Our first day’s goal is to gather the
bones for your holiday planner: a three-ring
binder, a three-hole punch, 5 to 8 tabbed
dividers (preferably with pockets), and a
zipper pocket to hold pens and odds-andends. You can purchase a custom designed
binder to house your 100 Days to Christmas

downloadable PDFs for which ListPlanIt
has always been known, we now have a
mobile design that allows you to take
your lists with you wherever you go on
your smartphone or tablet. You can
