Ditch the Picture-Perfect Setup:

HGTV magazine and Pinterest might have you dashing through the snow for charger plates and tablescapes, but don’t let perfectionism stand in the way of a happy holiday. Opt for simple decor, easy cleanup and items you already have around the house. Dirty dishes? No problem. Ask family and friends to lend a hand before pulling out the pumpkin pie.

Schedule Solo Time:

We all love our family and friends but holidays can be…exhausting. Carve out a time before guests arrive or after they leave (both if possible) to sit outside, sip some cider and unwind. Soaking in some stillness before the storm is an easy way to ensure you’ll be a happy host (or guest).

Get Outside:

No mom, the turkey is still not done. Ease off the kitchen timer and get the family outside for some fresh air and fun. Grab a football for the kiddos and potato sacks for a race. Loser has to clean the roasting pan!

Shop Smarter not Harder:

Black Friday is not what it used to be (thank goodness). Say goodbye to long lines, human stampedes, empty shelves and 3AM wake-up calls. This year, your favorite retailers have revolutionized the way we sale. Get early access to Black Friday discounts before the weekend (our sale goes through 11/27 at midnight) and free up your Friyay.
