I know this seems ridiculous but hear me out. In the last week I have stumbled across three different Christmas Planning sites and one hard copy manual. I don't know if I've just been under a rock the last few years but I was intrigued. I like them, especially "100 Days of Christmas" because it takes the time to break everything down into small manageable pieces. Organized Christmas breaks down housework and decluttering each space for later decorating. The last couple years I feel like I've been too busy and too stressed to be able to enjoy the season and be thankful for the true meaning of the holidays. I'm confidant that participating in a program like this will help. It also takes time to plan for the holidays between now and Christmas. I don't do what they say everyday but it at least gets me in the mindset. Check them out, they have different levels of planning and include too-do lists too!
