(Medialink) – As the holiday shopping season gets underway, having too little time may cause shoppers to get stressed out. Consumer forecasters project this will lead many to focus on the “one-stop-shopping” strategy.
To reduce stress, experts recommend finishing holiday shopping in advance – and whenever possible, to save both time and gas by following the one-stop shopping concept. The idea is to find everything you need – whether it be electronics, toys or groceries – all under one roof.
Another way to reduce holiday stress is to make lists of what you need from the store with easy, entertaining ideas in mind.
While grocery shopping, grab some cereal, pretzels, mixed nuts, and a few other ingredients. You’ll have what you need to get the kids together to make the tried-and-true Chex Mix.
Keeping the kids busy will also help cut down on stress, so try to get holiday ingredients that everyone will enjoy. At the same time, this will allow kids to learn how to prepare simple holiday dishes that will be sure to entertain and satisfy everyone.
