Winter Break To-Do List 2017

I’m officially done with work for the rest of the year! Today’s our first day of Winter Break and I couldn’t be more excited. Our site is closed starting today through New Year’s Day and I have the best intentions of working on a few projects during that time. So today, as I have almost every year before, I’m sharing my to-do list for the break. I’m hoping this will motivate me to get some stuff done around the house. I don’t have to best track record for completing my Winter Break to-do list, so we’ll see…

I’ve put 12 projects on my list this year, but I’m under no illusions that I’m going to complete all of them. I just want to give myself options based on what I feel like working on next year…and based on the weather since a few of them are outdoor projects. You might recognize some of these from my recent Fall Project List….I guess I should rename that post to Winter Project List.

Anyway, here’s my 2017 Winter Break to-do list:

Install Baseboard in Living Room

Replace Office Outlets and Switches (from almond to white)

Organize Craft Room

Prime/Paint New Patio Cover

Finish Garage Makeover 

Order/Buy New Guest Bathroom Countertop

Update Gym Gallery Wall

Mulch Around Trees

Repaint Hall Tree

Cleanup Backyard (Pull Weeds, Remove Debris)

Purge, Purge, Purge

Clean the Barbeque

Do you have any projects planned during Winter Break? Do you get a Winter Break? I have the time off, but Adam doesn’t so he has to use his vacation time.

Wishing you and your family a safe and happy holiday season! Merry Christmas!

    1. Yay for relaxing! I definitely did a lot of that during the break too!

  4. Hope you are tacking this list well! I am in desperate need to purge.

    1. I definitely didn't get as much done as I wanted to (where does the time go?!?!), but I feel pretty good about what I did work on.
