It may be October, but Christmas is definitely in the air! Even Mariah Carey is already warming us up for the festive season.  While some may say it’s too early for all this Christmas hype, we say bring it on! The years 2020 and 2021 were quite draining so getting into the holiday spirit early and enjoying all the festivities leading up to December 25th are what we live for. 


So if you’re like us and can’t wait for Christmas, go ahead and start decorating your home, whipping up some holiday treats, and picking out gifts for your loved ones. 

How to plan for this Christmas 

To help you enjoy this Christmas season, here are some tips on how to plan ahead and make the most of your time:

Start early

Don’t wait until the last minute to start your Christmas shopping or prepare your holiday menu. Start early and spread out the work so you’re not rushed or stressed in the days leading up to Christmas.

Make a list

Write down everything you need to do, buy, or make for Christmas. This will help you stay organized and on track as you prepare for the holidays.


Start saving now 

If you start saving now, you can still have a significant amount to spend this December. 

Set a budget

It’s easy to overspend during the holidays, so be sure to set a budget for your Christmas shopping and stick to it.

Simplify your holiday decorating

Don’t try to do too much when it comes to decorating your home for Christmas. Less is often more, and you’ll save yourself time and effort by keeping your decorations simple.


Take some time for yourself

The holidays can be hectic, so be sure to schedule some time for yourself during this busy season. Whether it’s taking a long walk, reading your favorite book, or just taking a few minutes to relax, carve out some time in your schedule to de-stress and recharge
