How do you get organized for the holidays without working like a fiend, getting stressed out, exhausted and sick?
I used to hate the holidays when I was married. My wife was so super stressed out to have everything done perfectly. She just made it no fun. The constant cooking, cleaning and shopping for gifts was maddening and exhausting.
Now that I am single again, I go at the holidays at my own pace and find myself enjoying them more than at any time of my life.
I let other people do what they do and stay out of their way. I feel no need to be a super dad or super holiday guy. I just do what I want.
I have written a number of holiday hint type articles in my other website www.organized-way.com. These articles will really help anyone get through the holidays with as little stress as possible. You may even start to love this time of the year.

You cannot call yourself organized unless you use list. I hate to clutter my mind with what type of groceries I need and what I should be buying as gifts for other people.
