I don't "plan" per se, but I like to have everything done in advance. I'm mostly finished shopping, and have some wrapping done. Traveling is nice because it forces me to have most stuff complete before Christmas

Do you try to plan out everything you need to get done so you aren't rushed? Yes! The tree and outdoor decor are typically up the weekend after Thanksgiving. By the end of the 1st week of December, I like to have most of my shopping done or else I KNOW what I need to get and it's on my list and I get the cards sent out. 2nd week I get the final gifts, wrap, and make cookie dough. 3rd week I start baking/making all sorts of goodies.
Do you stick to your plan? I've tried to do this the last few years and it has made things go much more smoothly! Plus then I get to enjoy my baking time if I know there aren't other things I need to be doing.
Do you end up rushing around at the last minute? Not usually, I am a ridiculously scheduled kind of gal!
