{pre-holiday bootcamp, day 1}: the more and less list


DAY 1: The More & Less List

If you haven't read it yet, see yesterday's post about this two-week pre-holiday minimalist parenting bootcamp. It's time to create our holiday road map. I'm taking 15 minutes to jot down my more and less list, and I'll refer back to the list over the holidays when events and opportunities pop up to see if they're in line with my plan. I got some of my ideas for the more/less list from this great list of 18 things we should be doing more of (thanks, Amanda!).



MORE

holiday cards
desserts
books by the fire
decorations
impromptu dinners with neighbors
board games
homemade gifts
hot beverages & holiday music
calls to Grandma
town/city exploration


LESS

commitments
technology
scheduled activities
mindless internet surfing
shopping and buying
long-distance travel
playdates

Let me know if you're joining me in making a list! What would be on your holiday more/less list?

Loved your " more / less " lists and even got a little teary at the "call Grandma" more.

I have pulled all last year's winter duds out of storage and am amazed/disgusted at the assemblage of clothes that I would prefer not to wear. Throw them away , give them away or make myself wear them is a lesson in the value of your "shop less " advice .
