It’s the most wonderful time of the year. For most moms that means, we are juggling a lot of different hats. This year, I am determined to enjoy all that this season brings, and there are some simple ways that I am multi-tasking all that I need to get done during the holidays. I hope these tips will help you do the same.
Make Your Calendar Your Best Friend.
This limits so much stress. In the past, much of my stress comes from not writing EVERYTHING down. I mean EVERYTHING. I have every concert, church program, basketball practice, and work event for my husband easily accessible on my phone calendar so that I can pull it up at any time.
This will simplify the holidays, and help me manage all the different things that I need to do during this season.
Use Websites & Apps that Will Save You Time.
This is the time of year when we buy bigger purchases for our loved ones. It’s also a great time to get awesome deals on so many different things. We are in the process of planning on purchasing a new car. Autotrader has always been our “go-to” for years, when checking out deals that meet our budget. Autotrader allows me to easily shop a wide variety of cars on my laptop or easily on my phone with it’s new mobile-first platform.
Autotrader allows you to accelerate the car shopping experience, and structure your deal and monthly payments from the comfort of home before visiting the dealership. We bought a car a few years back, and we were in the dealership for over 3 hours with our 3 boys. This was not a great experience for any of us. Autotrader would have helped us fast track the process and really helped us save time, and money which is so valuable when you have hungry, bored kids on your hands.
With Autotrader, when you arrive at the dealership, you simply have to to confirm the information you entered online, test drive the vehicle, and finalize the paperwork. So much easier.
Let’s be honest, I shop for everything else online during this time of year. Car shopping should be just as easy, and it really is with the tools available on Autotrader.
Grocery Delivery is a must.
I may be late to the party, but I just started using services that will deliver my groceries or if I’m already out, I can do curb side pickup.
In our home, there is a lot of cooking, and baking during this time of year. Not having to dedicate so much time in store isles, is a major time saver, and helps me multi-task. I can literally be online buying a car with Autotrader while my groceries are being delivered at my front door. This has been a game-changer for me, and has really taken lots of the stress out of the holidays.
I hope these simple tips will help you enjoy this beautiful season, and save you some time, and money. Happy Holidays!
