They don't call it the holiday hustle and bustle for nothing! This time of year can get pretty stressful and down right chaotic. In fact, when was the last time you remember having a relaxing holiday?
Most of the stress is due to poor planning and not taking the time to think ahead. So you procrastinators listen up! Here are my favorite time saving tricks and tips for the holidays.
Make A ListI always, always make a list. Having a to-do list is one of the easiest ways to stay on track this holiday. From your gift list to your holiday travel--if you write down everything you need to do, it will keep you organized and make your life 10x's easier.
Make Online Shopping Your BFF.Let's face it, most of us barely have time to do our grocery shopping, much less buy our whole family tree a gift! If you're strapped on time consider online shopping. You can do it in your spare time, without leaving the office or the kiddies, and the gifts come straight to your doorstep! I swear by this time-saver. I would say that I do about 90% of my holiday shopping online and I wouldn't have it any other way.
Wrap As You Go.Instead of waiting to do one huge wrap-fest, try wrapping the presents as soon as you get them. It will cut down time in the end and you won't have to worry about anyone finding their present before the big day!
Your Name Is Not Betty Crocker.Unless you truly enjoy cooking from scratch, it's OK to cut corners. Keep it simple and relax. Everything will taste just as good--even if the cake came from a box. No one will judge you, I promise.
Well, that's it lovelies! Those are my tips. Use them wisely and hopefully you'll actually get to spend time with your friends and family and enjoy the holiday season this year.
