Overwhelmed basement finishing what next

So we started finishing off basement on 9/22 and it has been a worldwind. Starting to get chaotic and might have given ourselves too short of a deadline.

we have completed electrical, walls done, painted. We have ordered the carpet and the cabinets. Carpet arrives in 3 weeks. Below is list of what is left, any opinions on what HAS to get done and what could wait until after carpet.

1. hanging pre hung doors. ( we have 3)

2. plumbing for shower, toilet, faucet. ( currently have gotten as far as getting close to install shower base. But need to lay concrete I assume once plumbing is in place under shower base.

3. Sheetrock bathroom, mud and tape, paint, ceiling.

4. vinyl plank flooring for bathroom

5. Hang cabinets and install for wet bar area

6. install skirt board on stairs ( has to be done or they won’t install carpet on stairs)

7. Baseboard trim ( we have a lot of to do. Bedroom, game room and large entertainment area. )

we are doing everything ourselves, along with some help from 14 year old son. We did hire for electrical and Sheetrock of main areas.

basically wondering which is better option abandoned bathroom and just finish this winter after carpet installed or abandon baseboard trim. The weather is nice this week so it would be a great time to stain baseboards.
