HOLIDAY PREP MADE EASIER
One thing that always helps me during the holiday season is being organized. I won’t claim that I always do a great job at it, but this year I want our holiday celebrations to be relaxed so I can enjoy my time with the most important people in my life.
So I have a few quick and easy holiday prep tips to share!
MAKE A LIST
You don’t have to be Santa to make a list!
I’m a list maker so whenever I need to get things done or help myself feel more organized, I start by making a list. Actually I usually make a few lists but it helps to get it all out on paper.
Some of the holiday lists you might make include:
- Holiday cards
- Gift wish lists
- Meal menu planning
- Meal shopping list (Keeping a running list helps me feel less overwhelmed as I get closer to the day I need to shop for everything)
Those are some basics, but anything that you need to get done that is holiday-related, put it down on paper!
Another way to make the holidays easier is to find a place where you can get a ton of your holiday shopping done at once. Sam’s Club is a great option for all of your holiday shopping needs!

KEEP IT SIMPLE
One thing I’ve learned over the past few years is that my kids don’t really need every little thing I used to try to put together in the name of the holidays. Most of that just caused me extra stress. So I’ve tried to simplify things a bit.
I love holiday traditions but trying to build too many of them made everything feel like a lot of work. So the past few years I’ve been doing some tweaking.
One example is our trees. We love having more than one Christmas tree but getting all of the ornaments out and putting them all away always takes a lot of time. I have worked to replace our breakable ornaments with shatter-resistant and non-breakable ones. Now the kids can help decorate and the clean up is so much quicker without having to wrap each individual ornament.
So thinking of ways to simplify your holiday traditions goes a long way in making the prep easier.
