Christmas card chores can feel overwhelming if done in a big gulp by a single hand. Spread the joy with a Christmas card round robin!
Draft all family members for the job, and divide cards among them. Each member starts with a different section of the list, writing a brief greeting. When finished, hand the card along the table to the next person, who adds his or her own greeting.
Christmas music and special snacks make the effort special, and sharing makes it fun. Season's greetings!
Duplicate items--whether cookware, clothing or craft tools--make up a largely unrecognized clutter category. Dumping duplicates clears space for the tools you need and use each day. To part with them, gather all duplicate items and choose the best, dump the rest. Calling this process an "upgrade" makes it easier to part with the space-stealing understudies.
