The holidays are coming! The holidays are coming! Consider us your courier alerting you that the busiest season of the year is nearly upon us!
You don’t have to sit passively and let the season bowl you over. There’s plenty you can do in advance to allow yourself ample time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the holidays with your family and friends. So, let’s get planning!
Holiday Meal Planning
For holiday meals, you have four areas to prepare: the menu, the decorations, the shopping and the actual cooking. It’s easy enough to plan out your menu in advance and create a shopping list. Put on your calendar the date(s) you would like to have your groceries in your pantry. This year, instead of doing all your grocery shopping, have someone else take care of it! Use a grocery pickup service through your favorite store, then schedule a personal assistant from Errand Works to pick up your order, deliver it to your home and unpack it. Imagine skipping the pre-holiday grocery store crowds! Winning!
When it comes to the food, there are a number of dishes you can prepare ahead of time and freeze to further simplify your holiday. Breads, desserts and casseroles all freeze well. Consider scheduling two grocery pick up runs with an assistant, and do some baking with the first deliver ahead of time! And while an assistant is out working for you, they can run by the party store and pick up decorations and rental items, as well!
House Cleaning and Organizing
One of the most stressful parts of holiday prep is getting your house ready. There are a number of ways Errand Works personal assistants can help you tackle this task. Send us shopping to purchase all the cleaning supplies you need. Schedule us to pick up prescriptions, drop off dry cleaning and run by the post office so you can focus on your home. We’re masters at taking errands off your plate, so you can tackle what’s most important to you. We’re also masters at decluttering and organizing and can remove that dreaded task from your list entirely! Opt for this service, and we’ll leave you with a clutter-free home ready for cleaning.
While one of the most fun tasks of the season, shopping for gifts can also be the most exhausting. Running here and there — across town and back — takes a lot of time. Our personal assistants can do your personal shopping for you. Simply provide a detailed list of items and stores you would like them purchased from, and the gifts will be delivered right to your door.
