Oct. 15, 2014 — We all know the holidays can be a busy time of year, so we wanted to find some great tips to make this time of year more enjoyable.  Try these quick holiday hacks, and spend more time celebrating!


Décor: Use a dry erase marker instead of a Sharpie so you can correct any mistakes before you start carving your pumpkin

Treats: Using a rubber band, pack a group of straws into a large cup. Then, pour JELL-O mix into the straws. Refrigerate, and then rinse with warm water to release the perfect snack of slimy “worms”!

Pumpkins: Dip your carved pumpkin in bleach water to help avoid mold growth and preserve longer.

Dinner: Bake your stuffing in a muffin pan for easier single-serve portions.

Dessert: Store your ice cream in a plastic bag to keep it soft and ready to serve.
