A Hyper-Organized Christmas

Seriously, what in hell am I even looking at in these photos? 

Anyways, I wore this to go do all my holiday shopping (not pictured, my mask). I like to have as little stress around the holidays as possible so I get hyper-organized, make a to-buy list and a budget weeks in advance, and then book three days off work (one to decorate, one to shop, and one to wrap). Christmas is obviously going to look at a lot different this year and I had way fewer gifts to buy owing to a total dearth of gatherings, etc to bring things to, but I’m still pleased with myself for getting it all done and sorted before December 5 this year.

That's a pretty smart idea to knock it all out at once! And a mini "vacation" even though you're getting lots done, haha!
I usually get most of my shopping done before December but I do shop some of the sales online after

You can decorate, shop and wrap in THREE days?! What is this sorcery? We usually take about three days just to get and decorate the tree, the entire month to shop, and wrapping often extends past december 25th.

I love that coat on you! Such a classic cut! :)

I am impressed you can do all that in 3 days too! I started shopping back in the stocktake sales in June for Christmas presents, haha! I take my time and spread it out over a few months with the goal of being done by December, but so far nothing is wrapped...I keep buying more for people (especially the kids) when I stumble across it which I really need to stop doing, so I can sit down and get it all organised and wrapped. Still waiting for a couple things to arrive in the mail and I'll be able to get that done!

Hope that your week is going well!

I am in LOVE with this coat- the length, the cut, the color. It's perfect!

Love your coat! The pandemic helped me a little this year with feeling less pressure in having to do everything for Christmas.

I love that somehow you had less to buy this year! I feel like I've bought more gifts than ever to make up for my total lack of presence in anyone's life in the past ten months, even though obviously no one is to blame for that. Stores here have been closed for ages so it's been all online shopping, which I did in late November, and I'm still waiting on deliveries, which is getting increasingly stressful since we're now less than two weeks from the big day. Ah, the joy of the holidays :P
