The holidays are coming up very soon and I know what you are thinking, where did the year go! But before anything can happen, you must PLAN out your holiday events, your menus, gather up your lists for gift giving, and decide if you will be having any parties at your home this year.
For example for the holidays, if you are hosting a family party, find out how many family members and guests will be staying over at your house and/or just coming for the parties. You need to find out if you are expecting 5 people or 20 people for dinner. Next if you are planning on having guests stay at your home, determine if you need to have the guest bathroom sink fixed that has been broken for many months but have not had time to fix it and put it on your list to have it fixed before the holidays.
If you are planning on doing some or most of your holiday shopping online, start checking through the websites and gather up your ideas for gifts now and if possible, order them now just in case they are out of stock when you go back to purchase them in a few weeks or the delivery date is after the holidays.
If you feel to stressed out to get your holiday cards out before the holidays, why not try something new and send them after the holidays in January. Or send them a Valentine’s Day card when people will really appreciate or love to have a card sent to them in February. So if you are not sure what to do or where to start, start the holidays by PLANNING and once that is in order, the rest will all fall into place and it will be an organized and peaceful holiday season!
