Podcast favorite and professional declutterer, Rebecca Mezzino, comes to discuss how to give yourself the gift of sanity this holiday season. I admit my biggest holiday struggles and we come up with lots of tactics to avoid the exhaustion and frustration so a joyful holiday can be had by all, namely us moms who are worn down from all the magic-making. Rebecca and I sort out how to specifically delegate tasks to your spouse (and she has a whole system for this), how to limit the work that doesn’t bring you joy, how to change your gift-buying habits, how to cut your wrapping in half, how to put your domineering family members to good use, and basically how to curate a holiday that doesn’t leave you flattened. I also share my plan for a do-less holiday “experiment” that will be implemented this year, and Rebecca shows her extraness with a funny detail about how she keeps surprises hidden from her family. I’m giving you this episode early enough in the season so you have time to implement its takeaways, before you get stream-rolled.
