Stress-Free Holiday Travel

One of the most stressful parts of the holiday season is the traveling.  From making sure all the bags are packed and the kids are behaving to navigating crowded airports and busy roads, it might seem like a sure way to dampen the holiday spirit.  Holiday traveling no longer needs to drive you crazy!  

Lisa's Tips:
o        Easy ways to entertain the kids.  From packing little surprises to creating games out of landmarks, keeping kids occupied makes every trip easier.

o        Car check must-haves.  Making sure your vehicle is in top shape prior to hitting the road is key.  Find out what needs checked out for proper road safety.

o        Don't forget the pets!  Instead of letting finding arrangements for the familys favorite furry friend be another stressor, learn how to take your pup with you!
