HOLIDAY QUICK TIPS
The Holidays are jammed packed with activity, and trying to accomplish everything can be a monstrous task if you don't plan ahead.
Check your table linens and napkins NOW. Many stores are offering huge SALES on tableware and decor for the holidays. Don't wait until you are ready to set the table to find worn or soiled tablecloths, chipped dishes, etc.
Wrap your presents as you purchase them instead of waiting until Christmas Eve to wrap a huge pile of presents with creativity and love. You'll not only wrap a better looking present, but you won't find yourself running out of wrapping paper or ribbon at the last minute either.
The Holidays come with truckloads of holiday mail and cards. Plan ahead for Holiday paper clutter. Get a decorative wicker basket, wire letter holder, or decorative velvet tray for all those holiday cards you will be receiving. Don't let them pile up or clutter your beautiful decorated spaces. Don't forget to tape return address labels to the backside of cards, for addresses you don't already have.
Plan ahead for all those coats, hats, and other bulky winter items when holiday guests arrive. Have a place for messy items like boots, so that entry spaces stay clean,dry and Holiday sparkling.
Staying ahead of small items can add up big in the end, when Holiday stress is running high and the number of days till Christmas are quickly running out.
