Get organised

The festive season is always frenetic and for those doing the organising there's one thing guaranteed to top the Christmas wish list – more time. The golden rule is that it is never too early to start the preparations, a fact not lost on the retailers who helpfully wheel out their Christmas merchandise as soon as the kids go back to school in September. The simple truth is that thoughtful organisation will ultimately save you time, money and keep your blood pressure at an acceptable level.

Here's some ideas to get organised and make things easier on yourself this Christmas:

Buy online. You'll find lots of ideas for presents you can buy online on our presents page. The more you buy from the comfort of your own home the less shopping you have to do. Don't forget to leave plenty of time for delivery!

Take the time to create an electronic Christmas card list. Of course, the first time you do it takes a lot of time, but once it's done it is easy to update year by year. Print out labels and save yourself time addressing all those envelopes.

Use your milkman. If you don't use a milkman Christmas is a really good time to get one. Nowadays they deliver a whole lot more than milk including great Christmas hampers. Visit www.milkdeliveries.co.uk to find out more.

City & Guilds have a number of courses in the lead up to Christmas which can help you to get organised for the big day, visit their website at www.timetolearn.org.uk
