Christmas is five weeks from today! We’re counting down the weeks with tips to help you keep your Christmas season, stress-free and under budget!
Well, Christmas may be five weeks away, but Thanksgiving is just eight days away. That means many of us have our hands full with meal preparation or traveling over the river and through the woods to Grandmother’s house. (We’ll be doing dinners #2, 3, and 4 of this year’s whopping FIVE turkey meals within the next eight days!)
Guess what? That’s plenty for the week, so no new countdown assignments for this week. Get through all your Thanksgiving work, travel safely, enjoy the holiday, and give thanks for the blessing that is the hustle and bustle of busy holidays. And if you’re hosting a meal and need a little help with it, check our our Thanksgiving Survival Guide (it’s like a mini countdown to Thanksgiving with a to-do list for the coming week!)
This week’s action plan:
Nothing new this week for Christmas prep, besides keeping in mind that the coming week is looking pretty amazing for sales.
