Holiday Planning Tips for Busy Mothers

Holiday-Planning-Busy-MothersBusy mothers: sounds a bit redundant, doesn’t it? What mother isn’t busy? Between the kids, work, and the house, you barely have enough time to breathe, let alone plan the perfect Christmas or Hanukkah. And let’s not forget about Thanksgiving. You have an entire Thanksgiving feast to plan, shop for, and cook in between shopping and holiday planning. Yikes! What is a mother to do?

Holiday Planning Tips for Busy Mothers

Take a deep breath and let us help you plan out the holiday season, because, let’s face it, without proper planning the holiday season is anything but a holiday. You can do this!

Start Shopping Early

If you have a large family, holiday shopping can be quite a chore.

Many retailers already have their Christmas decorations out, so why not start your holiday shopping? The early you start shopping, the less you will have to do right around the holidays, when the stores are packed and the checkout lines seem to go on forever. So do yourself a favor and get to work early. This will also help you spread the cost of gifts out over several weeks or even several months.

Christmas Cards

When it comes to your Christmas cards, it is best to get started early, especially if you are printing custom cards. So spend the next week or so designing and ordering your cards. Then you can send them out soon after Thanksgiving. Don’t procrastinate.

Don’t Be Afraid to Delegate

No one said you have to do everything yourself. So do yourself a favor and delegate! This is especially handy if your children are older. You can have them help decorate, address envelopes for holiday cards, go grocery shopping, or do normal, everyday chores to help you free up some time to focus on the holidays.

Be sure to get the whole family involved in the holiday preparations.
