Preparing for the holidays

The holidays are coming up quickly, and we want them to be easy, enjoyable and stress-free.  The best way to achieve this is by thinking ahead and planning and preparing in advance.  Some suggestions:

Stock up
Holiday get-togethers are often spontaneous. Stock up on toiletries for unexpected guests and store plenty of food in the freezer for a last-minute meal. Don’t forget a freezer-ready dessert to really impress your guests!

With children and grandchildren growing older, families are growing larger. It’s understandable to forget a stocking-stuffer for a remote cousin or a rarely seen great aunt! So, stock up on affordable unisex gifts, just in case there’s a last minute visitor-- and while you’re at it pick up a few extra gift bags.

There are few worse combinations than unexpected guests and a messy house. Try keeping things reasonably clean throughout the holidays. Check the house daily for clutter, laundry, random objects on the floor and dishes in the sink. Keeping things tidy will help tremendously when that knock comes on your door.

These basic tips will help you to relax and enjoy the season!
