1. A very timely write up. We don’t host family or guests during the holidays, but we have discussed doing a layaway for some bigger gifts for Christmas to prepare and stay within budget.

  2. I have no idea if my parents will visit me this holiday season due to pandemic but I still love the idea of preparing our guest room for them just in case they wanted to see me.. Hahaha! Thanks for the tips.

  3. Maybe if I start now, I wont be so stress at Thanksgiving time. The holidays can take a lot of work.

  4. Thanks for these ideas. I love holidays. It’s better to be ready in advance. I am already thinking how our Christmas will be this year!

  5. These are really awesome ideas!! Thank you so much! I love stocking up essentials too, especially when there are huge sales. Such a great way to save.

  6. This year we don’t have anyone staying during the holidays. But my mom comes to visit often and we’ve done some of this. She actually has her own basket in the bathroom that she keeps her toiletries in so she doesn’t have to pack them and I have the same at their house. But the snack thing is definitely something that everyone appreciates.

  7. I love these and I am so ready for the holidays. I am rewatching old Hallmark movies!

  8. I think the holidays will look very different for us this year. No family gatherings given the pandemic. Good news is, we’re already done Christmas shopping lol! We did it last year when everything was on sale AFTER Christmas.

  9. Thank you for this, though I’ll be recovering over the holidays these are great tips to keep in mind in the future.

  10. These are all such great tips! I can’t believe the holidays are right around the corner. I love the idea of getting the guest room ready now!!!

    1. Yes, the guest room is the first thing I work on before the holiday season. You just never know who might stop by.
