Planning Ahead Really Works!

The leaves are turning colors, the pumpkins and Halloween candy are in the stores, and it's a great time to start planning ahead for all of the upcoming holidays!  Want to reduce your stress levels, find extra time close to the holidays, and save money?  Then read on....

Stock up now on the Halloween candy while the sales are on and there is a variety of choices - the closer you get to the 31st, the leaner the selection.  Don't be the house with the "awful" candy!  Decorations for fall are also on sale at many stores around town.  It 's nice to add a new wreath to your home now and then!

We recommend starting lists of the things you need to do to prepare for Yom Kippur, Thanksgiving, Christmas or Hannukah.  Are you having a houseful of people staying with you, eating with you, or just stopping by?  Each of these situations will require a different "to do" list and grocery list.  Plan for time to clean your home, make the beds, set the table, etc..  Do as many of these items ahead of guests arriving, and you are bound to enjoy the visit even more!  The sooner you start these lists, the less likely you are to forget an important item.  When we are under a time crunch, we often rush the process of making our lists and forget all sorts of things!  Need plane reservations for any holidays?  The seats are going fast for Thanksgiving travel...

I have always been one who buys gifts well ahead of the event - a birthday, anniversary or Christmas.  If you have not already started shopping for the December holidays, now is the perfect time to do so.  If you have a wish list for each person, you can find items on sale and save money in addition to being organized!  By keeping a list of what you have purchased, you can prevent overbuying for one family member over another and it makes budgeting a breeze.   Buying in advance of the holiday rush gives you a better chance of finding the gifts you want - it's not fun to find the item you want is sold out and not available until January!  Get the gifts you want, hopefully save money and reduce the stress, too - a winning combination.

As most of our clients know, we love lists!  We encourage you to start those lists now, use them throughout the holidays, and let us know if they helped!

                                              Happy Planning!
