Cold winds are starting to blow these past few days. In fact, some parts in the northern of US are having snowfall already. This clearly indicates that indeed, the holidays are coming. Even though it seems early, this is actually the right time to start making your Holiday list starting with the gifts you are going to give, the clothes you are going to wear, decorations you are going to adorn your house with and most especially, those special recipes you are going to cook for the series of gatherings you are going to host and attend.
More than anything else, all these holiday preparations will always involve money and time, so this is where your budgeting and time management skills will be challenged fully. Here’s what many people do:
- Do not shop at the last minute. Aside from avoiding the rush hour, items during this time are all but leftovers from other shoppers. Most likely you’ll end up buying the least quality items. Shopping early would give you more time to pick the best quality items and compare the most economical options.
- Make use of those Pre-Holiday sale or perhaps those bundled or wholesale items.
- Since you made a list, stick to your list, especially if you’re on a tight budget.
- Make use of those multi-tasking appliances for your cooking preparation like those from Frigidaire and Whirlpool. This Frigidaire FGIF3061NF induction electric range can accommodate several dishes at a time and in fact, one of the most efficient Appliances Prep for the Holidays. Most of the cooked dishes are best served warm, this awesome range can keep whatever you’re cooking warm until you’re ready to serve it. Did I mention that it has a self cleaning feature? Yes, it has and that would mean saved time before the party officially starts.
- If you can manage, start cooking several dishes at the same time and that is made much easier with this Whirlpool WGG555S0BS, which has a double oven so you can cook two dishes at two different temperatures at once. Both of them are included in the BestBuy Holiday Prep offers.
With awesome planning and creative thinking plus the use of those multi-tasking appliances, I’m sure your holiday preparations for this year will be easier, faster and more economical than ever before.
