Ber-months fly the fastest. As nights grow longer, there’s only so much you can do in a day, and you’ll be surprised to find the holidays right at your doorstep. If you want to achieve that laid-back but seamless holiday season, here are some planning tips that will get the job done.
- Make a to-do list
A small piece of paper can go a long way when it keeps all your to-dos in check. List down all the things you need to do before the holidays. You don’t have to put everything down in one go. Just keep your list on hand so you can easily jot down the ones you randomly remember. To keep it organized, break the list down into categories based on priority or convenience, whatever works best for you.
- Take gift shopping online
Stores are most packed in the holiday season. Crowded aisles and long queues can really get the best of us, so let’s take the gift shopping online. Instead of burning your feet out going from store to store, stay home and just click away.
- Plot your ber-month staycations
During the holiday season, hotel rooms run out as fast as candy. Plot your ber-month staycations as early as September and book them right away, to secure your own share of hotel rooms for the holidays. This September, you can save up to 55% on spacious, homey suites perfect for a memorable family staycation.
- Wrap gifts as they come
The task to wrap a big pile of gifts can be overwhelming, but you can avoid this by wrapping gifts as they come. Wrap your online-purchased gifts as they arrive, and likewise, your store-purchased gifts as you take them home.
- Dust your old décors off
It’s always satisfying to pull something off and still get to save a couple of bucks. Before you set out to purchase brand new Christmas décors, drop by your storage and rummage for some accents and ornaments from last year’s holidays.
The holiday season may require quite a lot of work and get you all stressed out, but with a proper plan, you can notch it. Christmas after all, is all about having a wonderful time with our loved ones.
