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 efficiency.

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 you. 

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.

Check out their website for details and pricing.
