The Christmas season never seems long enough to me.

I just don’t feel right decorating and listening to Christmas music before Thanksgiving, but I also feel like the month between the two holidays just flies right on by! I’m always left wanting more!

That short amount of time is also usually jam-packed with activities and get-togethers and plenty of things to keep us busy.

Sometimes I wish it was simpler.

I wish I had the time to ENJOY the holiday season, not just make it through flying by the seat of my pants and dragging my family along for the ride!

My wise and wonderful friend Crystal Paine has just released a lovely ebook to help us – mostly me! – get the holidays under control! Celebrating and Savoring a Simple Christmas contains a wealth of tips and tricks to make this Christmas more organized and enjoyable for your whole family!

The beauty of this ebook is that Crystal walks the reader through simplifying many different stressful parts of the holiday season, including budgeting, gift wrapping, decorating, cleaning, and cooking.

My favorite parts of Celebrating and Savoring a Simple Christmas

*The book starts off with a section on budgeting. Do NOT go into the holidays without a budget. It. Is. Dangerous. Crystal’s tips will help you make sure you don’t overspend this Christmas.

*I love the ideas for gifts that won’t break the bank! I enjoy making and giving unique gifts and Crystal gave me a bunch of new ideas for this year!

*The “Freezer Cooking for the Holidays” section is genius. Having food prepared ahead of time for special events makes those special events so much more fun! I’m definitely trying the make-ahead scone dough – we LOVE scones around here!

*Each chapter ends with a “Let’s Get Practical” section with action steps for you to take. Crystal knows how to get you moving on what you just read!

I will be referring to this ebook daily as Christmas approaches, reminding myself to plan ahead and slow down to really savor this special time with family and friends!
