  3. Ashley C says

    I love the gift ideas! Those stocking stuffers are great! I think the star wars ornaments and headphones would be a hit

  4. Julie Lundstrom says

    I like her idea to shop at a one stop shop place to get your gifts at one stop. I also love the ornaments for decoration on the table. I never thought of that. They looked like real cupcakes.

  5. Barbara Montag says

    I like the comment about making a list to unclutter your mind.
    I make lists daily and it helps me to stay focused.
    thank you

  6. Audra O'Hara says

    I like the idea for the Sleep Chic pajamas. I think those would make a great gift for mothers or teens, which are notoriously hard to buy for!

  7. Katy says

    The tip about texting your list to yourself is so smart! This is a tip I can use all year! I find even my best lists are useless at home on my pad of paper! I also like the idea of shopping at one store for most or all gifts.

  8. Laura S says

    I’m a list maker so I like the tip of texting your list to yourself. I have also just taken a picture of my list (or lists) so that I’ll have them on my phone.

  9. E. Diane Macauley says

    I LOVE the setting the table the day before tip. I am pretty good about the kitchen prep ( to the point of measuring and labeling all ingredients so they can just be grabbed and added as cooking) I don’t know why the table never occurred to me.

    The texting idea is also genius as I am 99.9% of the time NOT without my phone.

  10. Ada Miller says

    I love the tip of setting the table the night before. That would be such a time saver on a hectic day and its something im always rushing to do. My own tip is watching for sales and look for coupons.

  11. Lauryn R says

    I like the tip about getting everyone on your lists gifts at a one stop shop store, this definitely makes things much easier!

  12. Cheryl Larimer says

    My favorite tip is making a list and setting table the day before. Making a list even for the holiday dinner helps me get all the groceries in one trip and helps organize the dinner to make sure everything is on time and hot.

  13. Judy Estrin says

    The best tip: Lists of things to do, buy, etc. It works! Everything went so easy this year by making sure it was taken care of courtesy of crossing things off “the list.”

  14. Deborah W. says

    I like the idea for the white elephant gift: an LED marquee. It’s portable, versatile and comes in a lot of different styles; something everyone would like to have and own.

  15. Anita Duvall says

    I like her tip about making all the lists. Things you have, things you need, things you need to buy at each store, and the coupons and offers available at each retailer. I love to make lists!!

  16. Angela Saver says

    My favorite tip was to do anything you can the day before, such as decorate & set the table the day before guests arrive so that there is not so much to do that day of!

  19. Melissa Tippie says

    I love the tip of using ornaments to decorate as a center piece of table setting. There’s so many ways to do this like putting in a bowl, jar or glass candle holder. So pretty!

  20. James Lacasse says

    Great tips all around! Ornaments as table pieces, one stop shopping, and the pot luck concepts are my main takeaways! Thank you!

    my favorite tip is to make lists, i love lists. they really help me get the things i need and eliminate getting things that i don’t need.

  27. Ally says

    I’m definitely a day before kind of girl myself, so I love the idea of doing that for both a dry run and for one less stresser the day of!

    I like the tip about making lists. I always do a shopping list, but end up forgetting items (which weren’t on the list).

  29. Wendy R. says

    Getting ready the day before the party is a good tip! Might not work so well if you have little kids though…

  30. Brenna H says

    I like the tip about setting up for your holiday party the day before – one more big thing checked off of the to-do list!

  31. Holly S. says

    Make lists of everything! I am such a listmaker and I find that it helps so much to get organized and stress less.

  32. Toni says

    I like the idea of shopping at a one stop shop for everyone and I like having the people heat the potluck meals before hand.

  33. Regina Simoes says

    I love the idea of texting to yourself. I am always making (paper) lists, but then never seem to have them on me when I actually am out and need them!

  34. courtney b says

    I like to cook your own meal in your crockpot- and then just unplug it and bring it to the party !:) easy set go!

  35. Pam C. says

    I like a lot of the tips, but my favorite is probably the one suggesting you use Christmas ornaments as a centerpiece for the table. That is a lovely idea.

  36. Katrina Angele says

    I like the tips to make lists and also to go ahead and set the table the day before. Really does bring down the stress the day of having everything ready to go.

  37. Beth O says

    I like the one stop store idea. This would save time especially when traffic is so crazy in the city during the holidays.

  38. Chelsea says

    I like the idea of setting up for a holiday party the day before, this way you are less likely to forget things!

  39. says

    I like her tip to do the decorating and setting the table the day before so you have less stress. I like to cook the entire meal thoughout the week before a holiday…that way I can get all the dishes/mess cleared up way ahead of the big day.

  40. Michele C says

    Thank you for the chance. I love the tip about using ornaments for a centerpiece. This could potentially save a great deal of money as well.

  41. Cori Westphal says

    I like the tip of finding a store where you can do some one stop shopping for a bunch of people on your list. That saves a ton of time and stress!

  42. Judy Schechter says

    I’m a compulsive list maker and this was my favorite tip! if you write it down, you can get it out of your head and worry less. Thank you for the chance!

  43. Delma Luna says

    The tip is I like is the make lists for everything. I try to do that, but need to be more diligent about it.

  44. Pat B says

    I like the tip about making a list of everyone you have to buy gifts for. It’s the best way to keep track of what you’ve already bought and what you still need to get. It especially helps if you start buying earlier in the year (you might even note where you’ve stored it so it doesn’t go missing)
