Visiting the supermarket, you can't miss them: Christmas magazines.
Sitting in their racks at the checkstand, they are the ultimate holiday flirt! Will this be the year you decorate like Martha, cook like Paula Deen .... and do it all while losing 10 pounds?
Of course not! Christmas magazines are wonderful sources for holiday inspiration, but without a reality check, they can lead you astray.
Stay grounded! Don't let Christmas magazines inflate your holiday expectations to the bursting point:
On Christmas morning, happy chaos reigns--but nobody wants to delay opening gifts so the family camera operator can find fresh batteries! Ahead of the big day, assemble a Christmas morning basket, containing scissors, pliers, camera batteries and any tools you need to open clamshell packaging. Add a pad of paper and pen to record gifts for thank-you notes. You'll be ready for the fun.
