Guys… it’s almost October?! Where has this year gone? Not that anyone would be too sad about 2020 ending right?

Officially, Fall begins September 22nd. Que the changing colors of the leaves, the hint of crispness in the air, and the onset of holiday decorations!

The time of holiday excitement and cheer is right around the corner, so don’t we all want to have the best rest of the year possible? 2020 has been a year full of twists and turns. Let’s make the most of the holidays ahead.

Why make the rest of the year harder, right?! Getting ready for the holidays ahead of time is a great way to do just that, and as per usual, your friends at Rakeman Plumbing and Air are here to help ya with some Tips For Getting Ahead of The Holiday Chaos.

1. Make Your List Early (and Check it Twice)

The #1 for Tips For Getting Ahead of The Holiday Chaos is making that list early! Don’t wait until the last minute like I do…

Planning out whos on your list, what you would ideally like to get them, and what those prices might look like, will definitely help you plan for the upcoming holidays. There is no shame in being prepared right?!

It doesn’t hurt to even pencil in other spending that might occur, such as decorations, bottles of wine or sparkling juices for parties, any food you might bring to parties, random gift exchange presents, etc.

This brings us to our next tip…

2. Getting Ahead of The Gift Shopping

Let’s be honest– the best and worst parts of the holidays are the presents. It’s the best-receiving gifts and giving gifts that put a smile on someone’s face. However, it’s the worst, because sometimes the funds are tight (especially after 2020 am I right?!).

The best tip we have to prepare for this is as simple as saving. Just a little bit every month to make the holiday gift-buying ventures a tad bit easier. Whatever you can muster, $20, or $100, every little bit will help cover your bases for everyone on your gift list when then holidays come around.

3. Give The Gift of Experience

Why not think outside of the box this year. Do something that will not only put a smile on the face’s of your friends and family. Perhaps spa services like massages, a unique fishing trip, mani-pedis, a trip to the shooting range, etc..

Maybe a rare experience your friend or family member has not yet had the opportunity to do? Skydiving, white-water rafting, rock climbing, scuba diving, swimming with sharks, riding in a helicopter, zip lining, going on a cruise, etc.

But do you want to know what a great experience-gift is? Let us tell you…

4. The Rakeman Experience
