The Christmas Grinch

Well, it is that time of year again. We get presents and more presents. Then after the season is over we have stuffed our space with stuff that can be compared to the little brother strapped in his snowsuit from the famous movie The Christmas Story.

Stop that right now. Start by telling your loved ones exactly what you would like out of the holiday. Overdoing shopping can already put a monetary weight on our backs but then coming home to a cluttered mess from sale overload can feel even worse. Remind yourself first what the season is about for you & your family. Focus only on what that means to you and remove the commercialism behind the holiday.
