Molly Claus’ helpful hints for organizing a family Christmas

  • Use photos as gift tags for ChristmasChristmasPResent
  • Roll up newspaper and wrap lights around them to store. The lights will remain untangled.
  • Shop early and wrap by the beginning of December. You can then miss the stress of hunting for gifts during the busiest time of the year .
  • For those who are hard to buy for try buying gifts from a charity or donating to a charity in a persons name that suits their personality.
  • Stick to your budget. It is easy to go over your spending limit adding small trinkets to the presents.
  • Buy one gift each month of the year. It stretches the budget out so the bills don’t all come at once.
  • Have a group cookie exchange. Make extra of your cookies and exchange with others for a better variety.
  • Buy a few extras, such as chocolates, just in case you forget somebody or you have unexpected guests arrive bearing gifts.
  • Buy your gifts by mail catalogue or over the internet.
  • If you are cooking dinner at home, delegate tasks. Family and friends would be glad to help.
