Holiday Organization

Start with a list and dates. When will you need those gifts, what is the budget, what
would be easiest to buy online?
As you unpack, discard droopy decorations, candles that melted etc. and if you have a doubt
about whether to put it up, don’t. Instead enjoy replacing it with something fresh.
If you make changes in the placement of things, draw a diagram of what you were finally
pleased with and tuck it in the storage box for next year.
What occasions will you be cooking or bringing a dish for? Try to avoid the last minute
trips for anything but those last minute fresh touches.
Much of the stress some people experience at Christmas comes from not pre planning anything.
