Holiday Time Management

De-stress the holidays with these tips!

♥ Make lists

A list of thing that need to get done at home
A list of all of your personal errands
A holiday shopping list
A list of things you will need if you are traveling

Map out your drive to do your errands so you aren’t back tracking and wasting time.

Do your shopping and cleaning at your highest energy time.

Keep all your holiday receipts in one place at home or in an envelope in your purse.

Call the store ahead of time to see if they have the item in stock.

Consider giving the older kids gift certificates.

Shop online

Have the entire family decorate the house all at once or decorate one room at a time.

Wrap gifts as you go.

Buy already made pies, rolls, vegetable platters, cookies

Make short cuts and prepare things the night before.

Have large trash bags to the side for the collection of all the wrapping after gift opening.
