Okay, we know we just got over Labor Day, BUT we need to talk about the holidays. There are many holidays coming up... Halloween, Thanksgiving, and of course, the 'gift giving' holidays in December. Although it may seem that these are VERY far away... there are things you can do NOW that will help you prepare for that time. That way, you'll be cool as a summer cucumber (hopefully) once it gets a bit closer to these holidays.
First things for - make a list. (My oh my does the GTC Team love a good list! I mean checking off those little boxes, such satisfaction!) This will be everything that you'll need (plus, a little extra from your favorite home goods type store decoration aisle). This will help you from making MULTIPLE, MULTIPLE trips to the store. Here's some things you might need:
Speaking of costumes, getting the right costumes for your children and yourself can be the most time-consuming and expensive part of Halloween. If you are making costumes from scratch, you need to allow yourself plenty of time to get them completed. You definitely don’t want to be rushing around trying to put last minute details on the costumes. If you are buying costumes, you should get them as early as possible. It may be more cost-effective to rent costumes instead of buying.
Give Thanks, for Thanksgiving
Whether you're hosting a family dinner or being a guest at one, there are steps to take NOW so you're not scrambling when the time comes.
For the Host
For the Guest(s)
And Finally... the Gift Giving Holidays
We know this list seems ambitious. Believe us - it's not easy having this all together. But TRUST us in knowing this will make your life 1,000x easier in the long run. If you need help, know that GTC is only a phone call away!
