Organizing Obsession: Holiday Efficiency

One of the things I love most about New York City is that
you can get anything – and I mean anything
– delivered. It’s not that we’re a lazy bunch. It’s that we’re all about
When I heard about Tyler’s Trees, a Christmas tree delivery and set-up service bringing “everything
but the presents,” I was conflicted. Isn’t this taking our love of doorstep
service a tad too far? Shouldn’t families be picking out and decorating the
perfect tree together?
But in reality… What if you live in a sixth floor walk-up? What if you work crazy hours? Or what if your spouse travels for work? I bet wrangling a Christmas tree and
stroller down the city streets is enough to zap the holiday spirit right out of
In the holiday season, when our To Do lists are a mile long, it’s all about prioritization and relying on help when you can. Ask a neighborhood teen or family friend to wrap gifts, and delegate tasks around the house to all members of the family.
So I say, all New Yorkers should have Christmas trees (at
least the ones that want one)! Cheers to Tyler’s Trees for being the ultimate
in urban simplicity.
