Join in and follow the steps so you can enjoy a peaceful and fun holiday season! (You can subscribe here so you don’t miss anything!)

 

 

This week’s Stress Free Holiday Baby Steps are:

Stock Up On Baking Supplies Now-- The Peaceful MomStock Up

Now is the time to stock up on baking supplies for the holidays. Not everything will be on sale, but you can find low prices on most staples such as flour and sugar. This is also the best time of the year to purchase turkey, so think about purchasing an extra one or two for the freezer. Sweet potatoes and pomegranates are also at their best prices of the year.

Think About Meals for December

Everyone has to eat, the question is how. Make a plan now so that you can stay out of restaurants when things get busy in December. A quick way to plan your meals is to use my favorite service eMeals. You receive a weekly meal plan, grocery list and easy recipes for $10 a month for a 3 month plan — a great investment if you struggle to keep your grocery bill in check, or spend lots of money eating out.
