Tips on staying organized this Holiday season

It’s that time of year to start planning for the Holidays! We all have lived the most interesting year thus far with the pandemic of 2020. As time has passed families have become more comfortable with small gatherings at home. We’re already Mid October, before we know it Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas will be gone and we will be ringing in the New Year with lots and lots of cheer for 2021! We have tips on how to stay organized this holiday season!

First things first, focus on what the holidays mean to you and yours, what traditions are you typically looking forward to that the pandemic is not affecting. For example, our family has a pumpkin carving party every year before Halloween; we crank up the spooky tunes and carve away. For us the head count is about 12 this includes the kiddos and parents so we are moving forward with this event this year. Thanksgiving and Christmas are a bit more extravagant and we may have to make other arrangements this year to minimize the amount of people invited. Once you have an idea of what cheer to provide this Holiday season you can start making your arrangements.

You can tackle many small tasks before the month is over; pre-writing and stamping holiday cards is a great way to be ahead of the game, if you have free time get your cards and list together now to start his process and mail them out the last week of November to ensure the people they’re headed to can get them in time.

If you plan on having a small get together, look into ordering a port-a-potty or wash station for extra sanitary purpose. This will help at any type of gathering, we provide a hand sanitizer dispenser in all our units, now your guests will have another location to do the doo and they’ll be able to stay sanitary! If you don’t need a potty, the wash stations are great (this option will be perfect for our pumpkin carving party) If the gathering is outside, place them on both sides of the property to attract more people to utilize them, they’re equipped with paper towels, soap and water!

Gift giver? Set up a gift wrapping area. Clear off your coffee table and set yourself up with all the things you’ll need so you can wrap as you shop! If you have an old empty box you can fill it you’re your new or unused paper form years before get your bow, ribbon, tape and tags ready at your station and now you don’t have to worry about lugging your baby elf station back and forth.

Don’t forget to take care of yourself, having down time to spend with your local family and friends are such a great way to celebrate the Holidays. Try to ensure time for you this season as this pandemic has kept us away from each other most of this year. Don’t stress about extravagant gifts and parties, this year has been tough enough on us, time is free and it’s the perfect gift to give to someone you’ve been missing!
