It’s beginning to look a lot like the Holidays, and Are you wondering how to eliminate Stress this Holiday Season?
Holidays are supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year, however, they can spiral out of control to quickly become the most stressful time of the year. Am I right?
I mean if we’re being honest, there are times where the holidays can get a little stressful!
Between all the extra groceries & cooking, gifts to buy, parties to go to, parties to host, cookies to make, and cleaning to do, the Holidays are just….A LOT.
So this year I wanted to give you a few tips on how to eliminate stress this holiday season.
Number 1. Start Now!
Don’t wait until Pay day to start planning. The Christmas Holidays can get expensive. So the earlier you can start, the better!
If you haven’t started already, every time you get paid, buy a gift or two. I do this all year round to eliminate some of the financial burdens off us at Christmas. Use Your holiday budget tracker.
But don’t just buy gifts early. Now is a great time to start stocking up on extra food that you will need. Each time you go to the store grab an extra bag of sugar, maybe some canned goods, etc.
Anything you can store now, get it so your grocery bill the week before Thanksgiving & Christmas isn’t outrageous!

Number 2. Declutter
Ever wonder why in January everyone has the urge to organize? Because they get a ton of stuff for Christmas that they don’t know what to do with!
Get ahead of the clutter now by slowly getting rid of things. Now is a great time to get rid of clothes you don’t wear, old toys, electronics, etc! Everyone wants an organized home, right?
Number 3. Make A Plan
Without a plan, stress comes easily. Start making lists now to get ahead so there’s no last-minute planning or trips to the store. Start now on your gifts lists, Christmas budget, Holiday or Thanksgiving Grocery List, menu plan etc.
Number 4. Use Printables
A blank sheet of paper is cool, but pretty printables are better.
Because when you have a designated paper for something, you’re more likely to use it and stay organized and Eliminate Stress this Holiday Season!
