My life has been a whirlwind for the last few weeks. I'm guessing this is true for many of you, as well.
As a result, I haven't been doing much crafting or Christmas decorating. I'm just trying to get through the next thing on my calendar, because I know there's something else that follows. I don't know how I'd survive without it.
Now I'm wondering, how do you manage your time during the holiday season? I'm looking for your tips on scheduling, making things work or cutting some things altogether. Have you purchased anything (be it gifts, decorations or items for semi-homemade meals) that has made your life easier? Because to be perfectly honest with you, I'm seeing blog entries about holiday crafting and baking ... and I immediately feel more tired.
I'll start out with one timesaving tip of my own. I've started applying my makeup in the car while it warms up in the morning. I'm sure the neighbors thing I'm crazy, but at least my mascara hasn't frozen yet. (And of course, I don't apply makeup while driving, before you worry about the public's safety.)
So let's hear it – how do you manage or save time during the holiday season?
