Stress Free Holiday

Stress Free Holiday

Holiday is the most wonderful time of the year, but it can also be the most stressful. There are things to plan, to prepare and to work on. Instead of enjoying, we end up being tired and feeling drained. To make Holiday more fun and less stressful, here are our life hacks on how you can master the holiday rush! We also have the items that can really help you out. Click on the bold underlined text to shop.

MAKE A BUDGET

MAKE A BUDGET

We know that this tip is overrated. But there’s a big difference between a budget that’s planned and a budget that’s tracked. We believe that budget with planning and tracking is what you should do. Taking notes of the tiniest cent you spent can help you save more than what you expected. It’s better if you have a budget planner to keep you from getting confused. You can also get a book that helps you save a lot more this Holiday.

SMALL DECORS

The smaller the better. You don’t need large decorations to make your house look Holiday ready. Having fun-sized ornaments will save a lot of time and effort for you. They’re easy to set up and to remove as well. Little set of ornaments that can be displayed in your living rooms are adorable. Include a pillow with texts that depict the season for a finishing touch.

SPACE, SPACE, SPACE

Organize

You need a lot of space especially if you’ll be hosting a party. Get an easy to assemble box organizer that can store unnecessary stuff. Also, a coat hanger where your visitors can hang their coats is ideal.

PREPARE THE DRINKS

Wine Chiller

Sometimes, the best time to say “cheers!” often comes spontaneous. Be prepared by having drinks that are already cooled and ready to be served. A great wine chiller comes in handy. Trust us, it will make every Holiday moment cheerful!

GIFT SMART

Gift Smart

Since this is the season of gift giving, it’s time you give wisely. Eliminate the hassle of gift wrapping by using gift paper bags instead. Also, there are times that you’ll be needing last-minute gifts. So always have ready-to-give goodies like cookie bags or jams.

Lastly, since we talked about making a budget, you can always go for gifts that aren’t a pain in your pockets.
