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:
Returning clean dishes to the cupboard during after-dinner clean-up? Set the breakfast table straight from the dishwasher! You'll save steps--and make precious time during busy mornings. If you wash dishes overnight? Do it in reverse, setting the table for dinner as you put away clean dishes each morning.
