12 Clever Holiday Tips and Ideas
On the 12th day of Christmas, Real Simple gave to me…12 ideas for an easier holiday.
Minimize seasonal stress by keeping track of your to-dos.
- Make a family plan. Are you heading to your in-laws’ house? Hosting everyone at yours? Sit down with family members and decide where you’ll be spending the holidays.
- Buy plane tickets. If you’ll be flying somewhere, get your plane tickets as soon as possible.
- Put activities on a calendar. As you find out when parties and school pageants are scheduled, write them on a master calendar. Keep it next to the phone, so if someone calls to ask if you’re free for an event, you’ll know the answer immediately.
