Do you ever get to the end of the holiday season and feel like you missed it all?


  • You spent too much money,
  • said yes to too many obligations,
  • packed in too many activities,
  • brought mounds of new items into your home and can’t find a place for them,
  • and you feel exhausted.


Rather than a simple holiday season with family and friends, you ended up running the rat race with everyone else. 


This year, let’s change that.

Let’s create a lighter holiday season that leaves us feeling refreshed and rejuvenated heading into the new year.

Let’s make space for the things we want to do and say no to everything else. 


Much of the stress of the holidays comes from gift giving and shopping. The traditional view of Christmas is a tree over flowing with toys on Christmas morning. But what usually happens is these gifts are enjoyed in the moment of opening and then discarded for the next thing and everyone’s left feeling a bit deflated. 


If you wish you could make gift giving (especially to your kids) easier, more enjoyable, and more meaningful as well as keep your holiday season filled with joy, not stress, this episode is for you.


Key Takeaways

  • Get through the season without debt.
  • Create the season you want and will most enjoy.
  • Learn how to slow down and say no.
  • Buy and give gifts in a way that works for you.
  • Let go of traditions that don’t serve you and create traditions that do.
  • Most importantly, don’t miss the good stuff and start the new year exhausted and in debt.
