We are now six weeks away from Christmas. Where are you with your holiday planning? If you started on November 1 you should be making some progress on your task list and hopefully you are feeling less stressed.
Have you been able to break your task list down and handle a little bit at a time?
Even if you are just getting started here are some ideas to divide and conquer your holiday task list:
- Select one day each week to work on your holiday to-do list. Write it in your calendar.
- Group errands together. Buy stamps and mail packages at the same time. Buy staples and stocking stuffers from the same store.
- Delegate tasks to other household members. Get children to help with decorating, baking or wrapping. Get partners to help with lights, online shopping or decorating.
Make your plan and work your plan and your holiday will be joyful instead of stressful.
