  Have you been a bit stressed during past Christmas seasons? Does it seem like the holidays bring too much to do? By organizing Christmas this year you can help to make this a low-stress holiday. Here are a few Christmas organizing tips to get organized for Christmas.

  过去在圣诞节期间,你是否感到压力重重呢?你是否觉得,节假日的到来就意味着忙忙碌碌呢?那么,通过妥善安排你今年的圣诞节,来好好感受一个轻松的节日吧。如下,将会列举一些小贴士,教你如何有序的安排圣诞节各项活动。

  NO.1 Automate your card list

  Enter the information in a spreadsheet. Use separate columns for each item in the address such as first name, last name, street address, city, province and postal code. Use mail merge with your word processor to create address labels. You can also create columns on your spreadsheet to track gift ideas, friends’ children’s names, ages, birthdays, etc.

  NO.1 自动化归置你的朋友名单

  首先将所有信息都输入电子表格,为每一位嘉宾都设定一个独立的专栏,用于记录他的名字、姓氏、住址、城市、省区还有邮政编码。而且在设立地址编码的时候,你还可以同时记录他的邮箱地址。甚至,你也可以在表格内再设定一个专栏用于记录一些讯息,比如说朋友的孩子的名字、年龄、生日等等,这样,在挑选礼物的时候,也可以给你一些帮助。

  NO.2 Have a gift-wrap center

  Keep a storage bin for wrapping supplies under your bed or in a closet. Include wrapping paper, scissors, tape, name tags, bows and any other supplies you might need. Do not borrow from these supplies for other areas of your home. If you have to search for a gift-wrap supply each time you need to use it, that’s not organized or easy.

  NO.2 开辟一个礼品包装的角落

  在你的床下或者壁橱里,专门开辟一个角落,专门用以储藏包装礼物所需的各种材料,比如说包装纸、剪刀、录音带、标签等等,而且千万不要将这些材料者遗落到屋子的其他地方,因为,如果你每次用这些材料时都要满屋子的搜寻,那就根本不是什么有序管理了,而且会显得非常繁琐。

  NO.3 Don’t worry, ask questions

  Ask people what they want for gifts. Don’t get stressed trying to guess want when you can ask them. You’re more likely to give them something they really need. To keep the surprise factor, as for a list to chose from or get some general suggestions and surprise them with a specific item.

  NO.3 别担心,有什么问题请大胆地问

  人们究竟需要的是什么样的礼物,你尽可以亲自询问来得到答案,而不是不敢问、就通过猜想来得出结论,因为只有这样,你才能提供给他们真正所需要的东西。有时,为了给他们一个惊喜,或者可以给出一系列的选择,或者可以询问出一个大致的方向,然后,通过某样具体、特殊的东西来给他们一个惊喜。

  NO.4 Shop on-line

  I hate shopping in general and gift shopping specifically. Can stand in long lines and go from store to store looking for one with your item in stock; or you can shop online. Often, your favourite brick and mortar store has an on-line version.

  You have a choice, go to your doorstep to retrieve the gift and spend the rest of the time drinking eggnog and watching holiday movies, or you can fight for parking, sweat in line, get frustrated by items not in stock.

  NO.5 网购

  我非常不喜欢漫无目的的购物,尤其是在挑选礼物的时候。所以建议大家可以事先列举出一串物品单子,然后一家一家的去挑选单子里的物品,或者,你也可以网上购物。通常,你所喜欢的实体店都会有一家自己网店。

  这样你就可以有所选择,或者可以选择在网上一家一家的筛选礼品单子,然后将剩余时间用于喝喝酒、看看假日电影,或者也可以选择与停车、排队相抗争,之后为了那些没有的存货而搞得心力交瘁。

  NO.6 Pre-test new recipes

  If you’re planning a big holiday party, that’s not the time to test a new recipe. If it doens’t work, you’ll hear about it forever. Test drive a new recipe before the big day.

  NO.6 事先尝试一下新的食谱

  如果你打算举办一个大型的节日派对,那么在派对上检验新的食谱恐怕非常不合时宜,而且如果新食谱味道非常糟糕,就会永远影响着你,所以,请大家在这个重要的日子之前,就好好尝试一下新食谱食物的味道。

  NO.7 Ask for help

  You’re not Superman or Wonder Woman. If you are, you don’t need to do everything yourself. Delegate a few tasks to willing family members. Perhaps you can swap errands with friends. You will stand in line at the post office if she will pick up your recipe ingredients at the supermarket.

  NO.7 寻求帮助

  记住,你并不是超人,也不是仙女,因为如果你是的话,你也不必亲力亲为的来准备这一切了。所以,我们尽可以将一些任务委派给那些愿意帮你分担的家人,或者也可以在朋友之间互帮互助,比如说,当你在邮局排队等候的时候,让你的朋友来帮你在超市挑选食品素材。

  NO.8 Set a budget

  The stress of the holiday season can carry over into January, when the credit card bill arrives. Don’t overspend on gifts, holiday outfits and food purchases. Make a list, check it twice, make sure it fits your budget nice. (Sorry)。 Watch for the impulse items merchants purposely put in your way in the store.

  NO.8 设定一个预算

  节假日的负担与压力会一直延续到一月,也就是信用卡账单寄到家里的时候。所以千万不要在礼物、假日用品以及食品购买方面严重超支,建议大家可以列一张购物清单,仔细的检查两遍,直到确保它所对应的预算和支出是最最合理、完美的。然后,在逛商店的过程中,也可以有目的性看看我们额外想买的那些物品。

  NO.9 Have a decorating plan

  If you like to set up your decorations the same way each year, don’t leave it to your memory. Write it down, take a photo of it and store in binder. Create a system for putting away the decorations. Why struggle fitting items back in the storage containers when you can follow a plan you know works?

  Organizing Christmas will virtually guarantee you have a merry one every year. Then you can focus on enjoying and celebrating your holiday the way you want.

  NO.9制定一个装饰计划

  如果你偏好家里的装饰每年都不尽相同,那么,请不要通过记忆来安排这些装饰品,而是确确实实的写下来,拍张照片,将它们好好保存。并且,在处理这些装饰物品的时候也请井然有序,如果你可以制定一个有效的方法来合理有序得将这些装饰物品回收到收纳箱里,那么你又何必非要与之抗争而弄得一塌糊涂呢?

  合理地安排圣诞节,是为了确保大家每年都能快乐地享受这样一个节日。所以现在,大家就可以按照自己的喜好,来享受和装饰每一个节日了
