It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! This is an exciting (and sometimes stressful) time of year. With present shopping, house cleaning, cooking, and all the things you need to get ready it can feel overwhelming.
But don’t stress – relax! We’ve made a list with all the tips and tricks you need to be prepared for the holidays.
When you start thinking of everything there is to do to get ready for Christmas it’s easy get overwhelmed. Where do you start? The first thing you should do is pull out a pen and notepad and start making that list. Once you’ve completed your list, re-arrange and organize it by priority so you know what to do first. You'll be amazed how much more relaxed you'll feel when you know you've got it all written down. Your mind will be able to relax!
If you’ve ever missed out on getting that special gift the kids really wanted, you’ll know what we mean when we say ‘the earlier the better’. Get the kids to write their Christmas wishlists now. And don’t forget to write yours too!
Dig out your boxes of Christmas supplies and look through what you have. Is there anything missing? Any broken Christmas lights need replacing? Write out a list of what you need before you start decorating.
You can never have too much wrapping paper! Make sure you’re stocked up with paper, ribbon and tape to make your Christmas wrapping a breeze. Especially for those last-minute gifts you’re wrapping on Christmas Eve. Pro tip: save the newspaper cartoon section. They can double as wrapping paper in a pinch!
It’s easy to get overscheduled during the holidays. It will wear you out and you can come out of the holidays feeling grumpy. Remember you can always say no to invitations. And make sure to schedule in some “me” time to relax and energize yourself!
Stop that “I’m bored” business before it even starts! Start collecting jars, cardboard, boxes, or other supplies that can add to the ultimate kids craft box. Make sure to bookmark fun craft activities you can pull out when they’re getting restless.
