Michael Wurm: How to throw a holiday party with less stress
Keep it Simple - While we may
want to plan the most elaborate parties, usually simple is best. Limit
your menu, decorations, and even your guest list. With fewer things to
plan, buy, and cook, entertaining becomes much less of a fuss.
Make It Personal - When
purchasing décor and supplies for your parties, mix in a few reusable
items that you’ll want to keep for years to come. Personalize favors
and décor with custom photo ornaments, patterned engineer prints and
more with the help of Staples
Copy & Print Center.
Most Importantly, Have Fun - At the
end of the day, this is a celebration. Enjoy it! Put on some happy
tunes, grab a glass of wine, and savor this time with the wonderful
people in your life. After all, that’s what the holiday season is
really about. There’s no sense in entertaining if you can’t enjoy the

Test it Out: If you can, go hands-on with

Tara Kucykowski: How to make more savings happen this holiday season
Let Others Do the Hard Work For You: Use
deal bloggers (like Tara) as a personal shopping assistant. Check
their sites frequently to find the latest and greatest deals or sign
up for their email newsletters. Also check online as sites such as http://weeklyad.staples.com/staplessd?adref=PR
for the latest deals. Staples.com also offers Daily Deals.
Check for Coupons and Promo Codes: Don't
ever hit submit on your online shopping without first doing a quick
search for a coupon or free shipping code! These extra savings can
turn a so-so find into something spectacular.
Use Rewards Programs: By getting rewards
you’ll carry those savings into your next purchase. The Staples
Rewards program is a great place to start – members receive up to
5 percent back in rewards on everything including technology, plus
receive FREE shipping from Staples.com.
Throughout the season Staples is teaming up with and compensating these
experts to create the Staples Holiday Council and provide expert tips
for holiday preparation.
