 FOR A GRINCH-FREE HOLIDAY SEASON PLAY SANTA & SCROOGE
 FULLERTON, Calif., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- To avoid stress this


holiday season, follow good old Santa's example but don't forget the lessons of Ebenezer Scrooge. These tips on having a happy and organized holiday come from Day Runner, a leading maker of personal organizers.
 Make a list, check it twice:
 -- List everything that needs to be done -- shopping, decorating, religious and social obligations in a loose-leaf notebook or organizer;
 -- Overcommitted? Get an overview of the season by jotting down events and deadlines in a monthly calendar. Gain control of time by grouping errands, listing to do's and noting details of events on roomier weekly and daily calendars;
 -- Fight off stress and holiday weight gain by scheduling time for exercise.
 Shop and delegate like Scrooge:
 -- Decide what to buy, where to buy it and how much to spend before going shopping. Write it down and stick to it.
 -- Prepare for exchanges and returns by collecting receipts in a three-hole punched envelope.
 -- Save the most precious holiday resources -- time and energy -- by delegating tasks to family members or to caterers, cleaning crews and errand-running services;
 Keep miserly records:
 -- For quick reference, create a holiday yellow pages of unique shops and services (i.e., chimney sweeping, seamstresses) in an organizer;
 -- Keep up thank-you notes by making a list of gifts and cards as they're opened. This is also a good time to update telephone/address pages.
 Plan for Christmases Future:
 -- Organize for next year by taking an inventory of decorations, leftover wrapping paper and cards while undecorating. Insert in next November's calendar to know exactly what's needed in '93.
