Tips For Preparing For The Season With Basic Invite Holiday Cards!

Tips For Preparing For The Season With Basic Invite Holiday Cards!

There is nothing more stressful than preparing for the holidays. Between buying gifts, going to parties, and cooking huge meals for friends and family there’s just too much to do, and not enough time to do it. Thankfully, there are a few things you can do to make the holiday rush less stressful to handle.

First, make a list of your top five priorities this holiday season. Some things may include getting gifts for your family and friends, making sure you go to your best friend’s party, or making holiday cookies with your kids. Whatever your priorities are, make sure you do all of them. If someone asks a favor that conflicts with your priorities, tell them you can’t help them out this time. Don’t let anything get in the way of what you know you want to accomplish. It’s easy to take on too much during the holiday season, so decide what you want to get done, and you’ll have an easier time saying “no” if you need to.

Second, make sure you make time to complete important daily tasks. This may sound like an unnecessary piece of advice, but I’ve let important bills and emails go ignored during the holiday season, and seriously regretted it after. Pick a time every day during the holiday season to do important daily tasks. Respond to emails, pay bills, and tidy up the house. You’ll feel better once you do.

Third, buy your holiday cards, and send them out promptly. Every year, I mean to send out holiday cards and never get around to it. If you’re anything like me, you’ll only send them out if you do it first thing. Before the holiday season really sets in, order your cards while you’re not too busy. I really like Basic Invite’s cards. Their holiday cards will definitely impress your family and friends.

Last but not least, find a way to treat yourself this holiday season without spending money. It’s tempting to treat yourself with some shopping while you’re already spending so much money on gifts for others, but you can wind up in debt if you do. Instead, try doing something free or cheap that you enjoy. Cook your favorite dinner, watch your favorite TV show with some popcorn, or play a board game with some friends. You’ll be able to relax without blowing your budget.

Good luck this holiday season, and happy holidays!

  3. These are so cute! I try to get prepared for the holidays early every year, but I constantly fail. I'm just not that into Christmas so I tend to try and put it to the back of my mind.
