I hope you and your family are preparing for a wonderful holiday season. Please consider these ideas to help you save time, money and frustration in these next few weeks.

1.  Check receipts for errors when you are paying for items.
2.  Shop online to save time.
3.  Place receipts in one file folder in case returns are needed.
4.  Hide gifts in luggage, a neighbor's home or in empty holiday
    decoration boxes to outfox sneaky family members.

5.  Wrap items as you purchase them.
6.  Place stocking stuffers in gift bags by person to help Santa on
     Christmas Eve.

7.  Donate unloved or unused decorations.
8.  Recycle unneeded or non-working lights.
9.  Share your gifts - adopt a needy family or donate food/money to
     your local animal shelter.

10.  Write thank you notes promptly.

Remember - no holiday is perfect.  Be prepared for illness - bad weather or other issues.

Take care of yourself during these next few weeks:

1.  Continue your exercise program.
2.  Get enough rest - don't over-schedule your time.
3.  Don't overindulge in alcohol, rich foods or sugar.
4.  Ask for help if needed - house cleaner, professional organizer,
     carpet cleaner, caterer or decorator.
5.  Ask your family what they really enjoy about the holidays and
     let go of traditions or activities they have outgrown.

6.  Try a new tradition - attend a Christmas play or concert.
