Getting through the holiday season with your sanity and with a smile on your face is not as hard as it may seem. Here are a few tips to enjoy your time, your family, and your holidays.

Make breakfast treats before Christmas morning like these super easy & tasty Oatmeal bars.

Watch your neighborhood Fire Departments and Recreation Departments for "Breakfast with Santa" type activities that are often low cost and loaded with fun.

Don't forget to include your child's teacher on your shopping list. Here are some teacher friendly gift ideas.

Even if you think you can remember everyone you need to buy for, make a list and check it twice. Have the kids help as you go through the list in case you forgot someone and so they can see how many loved ones are in their life.

#1 TIP:
Find your smile. Whether you have the money to spend and are overwhelmed with your list or you don't have the money and are overwhelmed with your worries, find a memory that makes you smile and keep it in your pocket to wear it as often as you can. That little bit will go a long way.
