With the holidays fast approaching and things in the real world not as calm as we’d like them to be, I really set out to find some ways to make the holidays EASIER this year. What I found was some products and tips that I think you’ll love and that I hope you’ll want to use, year after year.
If One Light Goes Out….
While I was skeptical at first about LED Keeper being something that could help me make my holidays easier, I now think it’s a tool everyone needs. This tiny tool helps you fix any light set; options are available for both LED and incandescent light sets. Defective Bulb shunts cause most light set failures. Simply plug your LightKeeper Pro into the light set and pull the trigger. The LightKeeper Pro sends a pulse through the light set, finds the bad bulb, and fixes the shunt—allowing the light set to work properly. The LED Keeper saves light sets from being thrown away and sitting in the landfill. They also save you time and money from having to buy new lights and figure out how to fix old ones. Save yourself that trip to the store on the night you want to be decorating the tree!
Let Them Eat (Store Bought) Cake
We’re all hearing tales of food and supply shortages. We’re also hearing all about how small businesses need help. So…this year, I’ve decided I’m not going to fight the battle of hitting store after store for ingredients. I’m going to buy some baked goods. Yes, I’ll make some cookies with my son. But instead of spending days in the kitchen and even more shopping, I’ll give some much needed business to local bakers and restaurants and sit on the couch and take in a Christmas movie instead. This is truly a winning situation for everyone.
Click It Good
If you’ve heard the one before…keep going. However, I recently told two people about it and they hadn’t previously known the wonders of Click and Ship. The U.S. Postal Service will allow you to pay for and then print postage from your home printer. You can then schedule a pickup from your home; front porch, mailbox, etc. You never have to wait in line or leave the house! Start mailing gifts as early as possible. The Post Office has openly said this year delays are going to be the worst ever.
