Tips to Survive the Holidays

Start addressing your holiday cards Thanksgiving weekend. Complete five cards a night. Or, send New Year's cards this year instead.

Shop early in the month and early in the day.

Shop by mail or Internet and have the company wrap and ship gifts directly to recipients.

Simplify gift-giving by choosing a theme. For example: Buy a book or sweater for everyone on your list.

To keep packages sorted, wrap each person's gifts in a different wrapping paper pattern.

Instead of exchanging gifts with a friend you haven't seen in a while, suggest a Dutch lunch date at a nice restaurant.
