Dont let stress relievers top your shopping list this holiday season.
The most wonderful time of the year is often not so wonderful. Decorating, gift and grocery lists, shopping, cleaning, menu planning, traffic, parties, plays, baking, wrapping, volunteering, house guests, long lines, cooking, late nights, visiting, and a drained budget can lead to wishing for the seasons end! We all know this is not what the season is about, yet it is easy for it to turn into chaos, turmoil, and even produce grumpy attitudes.
Molly and friends are here to help reduce your holiday woes using a smart approach and strategic planning. The November issue of Molly Magazine is like a Christmas stocking filled to the brim with frugal ways to save on decorating, festive meals, and gift selections. And in the midst of the commercial side of Christmas, youll be blessed with sure ways to help stay focused on Christ. Rather than a stressful holiday, may you glean peace and the spirit of the season as you selectively choose which ideas youd like to incorporate into planning your familys holidays.
