Holidays Tips - Handle the Heavy Work Early

Mar 24, 2008
You know from previous holiday seasons that there is always a long list of things to get done in order to properly prepare for the holidays. Instead of waiting until the holidays are upon you, try tackling some of the bigger jobs earlier when time isn't so pressing, and relieve some stress in the process.

Have you completed all the tasks of cleaning its downfall? If your garage is a mess and has no idea where he buried the Christmas decorations, and there are still leaves falling everywhere, get busy and get your garage cleaned and organized and get the yard work completed. If you have not already done so, prepare your plants outdoors for the winter, his flight hoses and sprinkler systems, and completely clean your garage. It will make the hunting of holiday decorations a non-issue, because you can go right to them. It is also a good idea to take stock of their situation and make a note to replace anything that is broken. Check your lights at the moment, too. While you are at it, get out your lights outdoors, and hang them until after the audit. When the holiday season rolls around, all you have to do is flick a switch.

Get your deep cleaning done at this time as well. If you know you will have guests overnight stay with you, make sure your room is ready for the enterprise. If you have to store things, clarify. Make sure there is available dresser drawers and closet space for your guests to put things if you will turn over a long period of time. This is also a good time to put away the summer clothes and bedding and heavier elements leaving his clothes and bedding.

And while some may not consider dealing with Christmas cards a heavy task, it can become quite time depending on the length of your list. You can check if you have correct addresses from the beginning, but it's going to make this chore go more smoothly when the time comes. Even if you update mailing addresses, it is a good time to make sure you have the correct phone numbers and e-mailing, because both are quick ways to invite people to a feast impromptu open house or party. You might consider reviewing and stamping your envelopes in small groups while watching TV every night. That way, it will be ready to pop in the mail when the holiday season arrives.

Another chore that can be tackled early on is your holiday baking and cooking. Some baked goods freeze very well when prepared ahead of time, as do quick meals such as chili and spaghetti sauce. Then when the busy holiday season arrives, you'll have some of your baking out of the way, and when you need a quick meal, you'll have something that can easily be popped into the microwave or crock pot and can serve a hot meal to your family.

Addressing the major tasks now so you can fully enjoy their holidays later!
