Ready, Set, Shop: Tips for Less Stressful Holiday Shopping

By November 24, 2013

Follow me on:

Thanksgiving week is here. So many things to think about as we get ready--turkey, house guests, decorating, football...and shopping! I'm sure some of you are gearing up for Black Friday, while some of you are dreading the whole holiday shopping thing.

I'm in the second group. For me, holiday shopping can take the joy out of holidays, becoming a cause of holiday stress. If you work from home you may have some advantages when it comes to  Christmas shopping, like going at off-hours, but that may not be enough. Getting organized for holiday season--taking control rather than getting swept along with a never-ending "to-do" list--can work wonders for your stress level.

These these resources to keep your holiday stress (and you're to-do list) under control.

Good ideas, Laureen, This is the biggest advantage of work at home that when we need time to spend with our family we can shift our work schedule and do the works as suits. Same with the shopping if sudden plan has been made or shopping for any festive season, its quite flexible to do so while work at home. By just shifting work schedule we can adjust the timing and make shopping less stressful.
