Stress-Free Holidays Productivity and Organizing Blog Carnival
The holidays come around every year, and it seems we’re never ready for all the extra tasks and activities they involve. You know what I’m talking about! We do what we have to do to get through it all, vowing to do things differently next time. But unless we figure out what that means for us, stress-free holidays will remain a dream.

What can we do about this?

I knew that my readers would have answers, so I invited them to share their insight and expertise in this month’s Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival.

If you offer a product or service that would interest professional organizers, productivity consultants, or their clients, maximize your exposure by sponsoring an upcoming edition of the Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival.

As you read the posts listed below, please connect with the bloggers on social media, leave comments, and share your favorites with your own network.

A former professional organizer, I now eliminate stress for my clients by hosting, monitoring, and maintaining their WordPress sites so they don’t have to worry about security, downtime or performance issues. When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.

    Hooray for minimizing the stress during the holiday season. It can be hard to do, but it is worth the effort. The holidays will always mean extra tasks, but as these wonderful posts show, there are ways to make the process easier.

    Thanks for including my post. Timing is perfect for this one!
