“Oh, you are one of
those…”
Though my co-worker said it with disdain, I smiled and was
honored to accept the label as “one of those… Christmas people.”    I love Christmas…and have my whole
life.  Yes, I started watching Christmas
movies already and I have the time and day planned for my decorations to come
out.  They take up almost half of the
attic…it’s a glorious day every year.
But, it never sneaks up on me and I think that is a big part
of my success with the season.  For those
of you who get a bit overwhelmed, I recommend these tips:
1.      
Proper
Preparation and Planning.
 I have it
down to a science as to what happens first.  When the Christmas linens come out of the
drawers, I freshen them up with a good wash which includes Clorox 2® Stain
Remover & Color Booster, because it will boost and brighten the
colors!  They look good as new…my
favorite table cloth still looks just-out-of-the-box and it was a wedding gift
31 years ago.
2.      
Enjoy The
Process, One Day at a Time.
 
Decorating takes me more than one day, and I just enjoy every bit of it…I
have three collections: snowmen, mini-trees in various sizes, and Christmas
votive candles holders.
3.      
Be Open
to Surprises
…in other words, be flexible. 
If wine hits my favorite winter white sweater, I can get the stain right
out with Clorox 2® Stain Remover & Color Booster …by the way, you can use
it in any washer.  My adults sons might
stop by for a game of football in the yard, but I haven’t been in fear of grass
stains for years.   It is a busy time of year, and sometimes just
a pre-treatment on the stain, means I can get it out later if I cannot wash
right at that moment. 
4.      
Resist
The Temptations to Overspend
…I have to remind myself of this one every
year!  Sometimes I get carried away!
5.      
Make it
about others and not about you.
  I
love the season more when I have a giving heart and look for ways to give back
to my family, friends, neighbors, and even offer something special to those I
see all the time like my nail technician, doctor, esthetician, hair stylist
etc. A smile for everyone!
Ok, yes I sing Christmas carols in the car beginning after
Thanksgiving…if you need a boost in spirits just give me a call.  If you need a boost in your laundry, please
try Clorox 2® Stain Remover & Color Booster.  For more about the product, go to their WEBSITE HERE..
