Christmas 2020 will surely be like any other. Just like the rest of this year.
As many are ready to give the boot to 2020, we still have some very important aspects of the year ahead: Advent, Christmas, and reflecting on this past year as we wait for the New Year ahead.
Under normal circumstances, this time of year can be hectic. Year-end projects coming to a close, shopping, hosting, and simply not enough time to get it all done. Add 2020 chaos to the mix, and it’s a surefire storm of stress, angst, and potential meltdowns.
In the guide, I mention a few time-saving, money-saving, and sanity-saving hacks that I think will be super helpful for your holidays ahead.
Cut out the stress. Cut out the chaos. Press the easy button. I’m here to help!
Promise—you won’t regret it!
Instead of getting wrapped up (HAH—get it? Wrapped up! I’m always up for a good pun!) in the hectic nature of the holidays, I challenge you today and especially in the month ahead, to focus on what really matters. Our family, our friends, and showing gratitude to one another for the many blessings we share.
It can be a hard season for many, but with the right mindset, a little planning, and some easy holiday hacks—you’ll be all set!
As always, I’m here to help make your life easier while living on a budget. Reply to this note—I’d be happy to organize a holiday gift life specific to your budget.
Wishing you a happy + healthy holiday season ahead!

Is it just me, or has 2020 been rough? I’m ready to fast-forward to the merry and bright holidays ahead, and prepare for 2021 to be one of the best years yet! But, let’s be real, we still have plenty of time before we get there, so let’s make it count!
So, let’s dive right in! Here are a few of my TOP essential oil-inspired DIY gifts for the holidays. These recipes are designed to save you time, money, and your sanity (or what’s left of it!) this year.
Let’s be real, who doesn’t need (and sooo deserve!) a relaxing, luxurious bubble bath these days? Make your own at home with the best essential oils and supplies around.
