Christmas Decoration Checklist

November 8th, 2011

The holiday season is nearing, and Santa Claus has just started making his Naughty and Nice list. Christmas can be both fun and tedious. Like Santa Claus, it helps to have a list of things we need to organize our schedule and budget our finances for the holidays. Real Simple, a monthly lifestyle magazine, just made our lives a bit easier by providing a simple checklist of Christmas decorations!
