​Simplify the Season
​ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen would like to share with you our tips and tricks to keeping your sanity during the busy holiday season.
 
Keep a calendar handy so everyone can add special events. It’s a good way to make sure you don’t double-book.
 
In December, mark one night each week on the calendar as an activity-free night at home. Play a board game, watch your favourite DVD, add some baking soda to a steaming bath and just…relax!
 
Keep your address book handy to update it as you open holiday cards and letters. Throw the envelopes into the recycling container not into the garbage bin.
 
Choose evenings early in the week to go shopping, preferably over the dinner hour when the stores are quiet.
