A “Get Ready for the Holidays” Checklist



The holidays are quickly approaching and I am working hard at not loosing my mind with all I need to do before the kids get out of school and the guests begin arriving!

I cannot survive without lists! I need them in my life or I will get distracted by “All. The. Things.” around me, calling my name and getting me off track for the entire day! 

This year, I am printing my list and am determined to be ahead of the game and stay on track the next few weeks!


I always begin my lists with the basics. 

That always means shopping at Walmart and stocking up on the essentials. Our house already has 8 people, so stocked essentials like, Cottenelle Toilet Paper, Viva Paper Towels and Kleenex is crucial to our daily life, not to mention the holidays!


If you can’t or don’t want to make a Walmart run for your essentials you can save time and get the best deals by ordering online! Walmart’s free two-day shipping lets you skip the extra trip and everything is delivered right to your door! If you need it ASAP… you got it!


Please, don’t forget to save extra cash and use Ibotta rebates! They can can be used online or in-store. Cotenelle, Viva, Scott, & Kleenex all have great savings this time of year. This means more money in your pocket this season!


I shared my list with you just in case you have the same To-Do list! You can print it HERE.

I added a few extra blank lines because I ALWAYS think of more to do! Are you the same?


The holidays are going to be so much fun. It’s going to be a breeze to get this list done and the house ready for guests. 

Next problem to conquer… How to keep the kids from messing it all up?!?! HA!


Happy Cleaning,

    Thanks for the printable list! That will come in handy later. I always forget to organize the pantry before we have extended guests. My shopping list includes lots of paper products, too because we invariably have company or entertain during this time of the year. In addition to TP, I usually use plenty of paper plates during the holidays, too.

    I love having the Kleenex hand towels on hand for the holidays. I find that people love having a fresh towel to wipe their hands! I use them at every party!

    Great reminder list! With all of the preparation for planning meals, getting gifts, and getting ready for family to visit, I definitely forget to stock up on the essentials (paper towels, paper plates, etc.). Cleaning out the toy room is something I for sure need to do that I didn’t think of. So thank you!
