Start a meditation practice to help combat Open Enrollment stress. There is nothing like a little focused breathing to help calm a situation when I can’t leave the office to work out (or drink).

Holiday Gifts

Write out our holiday gift list. Since most of my family now lives long distance to me, I need to get organized on making gifts and getting things shipped so they’ll arrive in time for Christmas.

Christmas cards

Last year we waited too long to even think of photo cards. If I can plan a shoot now, we have the best shot at getting great discounts. (Like 20% percent off purchases at Shutterfly with code EXTRA20, expires 10/26/16)

Holiday Crafts

If I want to participate in the craft show I was invited to, I need to get brainstorming on my product list and make a supply list. Then I can be strategic about coupons and sales in gathering supplies. And allow myself enough time to make inventory while still getting our personal gifts finished.

Etsy Sale

Set up a fall fun sale on Chasing Blue Jays because a little buzz never hurts anyone. Plus, the extra income can pay for those craft supplies.

What’s on your to-do list this week? Are you planning for the holidays now or waiting until closer to December?
