October 2nd -8th
*Put up your Halloween decorations- if you haven't yet, but are planning to
*Make a batch of holiday goodies- these don't have to be Christmas related, either. If you have a special Halloween/Fall treat you like to make that you can freeze. Knock them out now! Otherwise, cross another Christmas recipe off your list.
*Make one freezer meal- this week it's Sicilian casserole for me. I posted the recipe several posts ago, but if you're running out of ideas and need something new, I highly recommend this one. It's delish!
*Buy 2 canned food items- one to save, one to give
*Buy at least one gift- wrap, label, and store it with your others. You should notice you are making considerable progress with your shopping at this point, even if you've only been purchasing one gift at a time.
*Work on any homemade crafts or gifts- again, these don't have to be strictly Christmas related. There are two holidays coming first. Finish whatever you've been working. Although, I don't recommend starting anything new unless it's easy and you can finish it quickly.
*Finish any other items that you may not have completed- I am still working on cleaning out our toys. That is first on my list to finish this week!
