The secret to success is learning from your past experiences. With that in mind, it’s helpful to create a master list for organizing your holiday season. As you go through the holidays, keep track of tasks and schedules and note what went well. If cramming all the holiday decorating into the day after Thanksgiving left everyone cranky, spread it out over the weekend next year. Over the years, tweaking your master list can help your family have a more stress-free holiday season.
