All Done By December One Starts in Two Days

My son showed me that funny video last week, and I had to share it with you because it tickled my funny bone. Plus, it’s a perfect lead-in for a question:

Would you like this holiday season to be filled with more laughter and joy, and less stress and spending? “All Done By December One” kicks off on October 15, and you’ll be amazed at how organized you can get for Christmas in just 10 minutes a day. More than 60 folks have already signed up to tackle some holiday tasks early this year, in order to have some precious time during December to actually enjoy the season. Would you like to join in the fun?

This year, we’ve formed a group on Lift – a simple, surprisingly motivating spot where you can stop by and let the world know that you’ve done your daily 10 minutes. Lift is free, and currently very un-commercial. You can check out the group here:

(While you’re there, check out some of the amazing things people are accomplishing in small increments, from writing books to exercising to expressing gratitude and more.)

If you’re “in,” you can join the Lift group or simply leave a comment below. You can subscribe to free e-mail updates or simply check back at Happy Simple Living during the next six weeks for ideas and encouragement to simplify the holidays, get organized early and make some breathing room during the season for the things that really matter. Here’s to more time for family, friends and animals singing Christmas carols this season!

P.S. I’ll be posting about other topics during the coming weeks, too, for those who don’t celebrate Christmas.

  1. Eliza – This is such a great idea. I joined lift and am inspired. I have already received some catalogues with great gifts. To organize them, I took one of my son’s old school folders with pockets and put the items (ripped out with back cover) into the pockets. It took less than 10 minutes, cleaned off my desk, and makes me feel great! Thank you for the inspiration. I can’t wait to get started. – Lyn

  2. Eliza – I downloaded the lift app to my iPhone. But I don’t see a connection to the All Done by December 1 program. Is there something else I should do? Thanks, Lyn

    • Lyn,

      If you visit the group page online and join it, then you can access the app with your iPhone. Here’s the link:

      See you there!

  3. I’m in again. Not only am I taking on the challenge of being done by December 1 but coming in under budget while giving all green gifts this year.
