The holidays are a wonderful time of year but they can also be very chaotic. Since we are now entering the week before Thanksgiving I thought I would share some tips to help make this holiday as easy and stress-free as possible.

One of the best ways to keep your sanity is to ask for help. While we all want to believe that we can do everything, that’s just not realistic. Consider asking family members to bring a dish to help cut down the amount of cooking needed. Appetizers and desserts are great to assign to folks and it takes it off your plate!

Get the kids involved with the cleaning so you don’t have as much to do before your guest arrive. My boys are great with a vacuum and fantastic dusters! I can give both boys a can of Pledge® and a cloth and challenge them to see who can bring back the dirtiest cloth. That little bit of sibling rivalry can get my house looking good in no time flat!

Speaking of Pledge®, don’t forget that now is a great time to stock up thanks to the deal in the Publix Advantage Buy flyer!
