How To Get Organized For The Holidays
Pandemic or not, people are starting to prepare for the holidays. While our celebrations might look a lot different this year, there are still things to be done! Here are some ideas on how you can get organized for the holidays!
Decide on a budget
Before you start preparing for the holidays, figure out a realistic budget and stick to it. While holiday parties and events likely won't be happening, make sure you factor in extra costs like shipping for presents.
Make a list
Once you have a solid budget, plan your gift list, menus and holiday cleaning. Get your family involved by hanging a To-Do list in a visible area in your home and assign tasks to each person.
Declutter before the holidays
Go through the kid's toy room, bedrooms and closets and donate or sell items that they no longer use. It also helps you get a sense of what items your family might be in need of! You should also go through your holiday decorations and once again, donate or sell any of the ones that don't get used.
Shop early on
With lockdowns looming in many places, it's a good idea to purchase your presents well in advance. Even better, stay home and order your gifts online or use a delivery service/curbside pickup.
Mail your parcels sooner
With restrictions on family gatherings, it's a good idea to mail your presents to relatives you won't be visiting early on. Expect shipping delays with the increase of online shopping and mailing of gifts.
