Must Have Holiday Survival Guide

America’s favorite on-the-go stain pen, Tide to Go, has a new counterpart, just in time for the holiday season—Tide to Go Stain Eraser! Oh, yes… we’re taking a must-have for every woman’s handbag during the holiday season. The Tide to Go pen is such an essential item in every woman’s emergency kit for holiday parties for the unexpected messy hors d’oeuvres and finger foods, that it has become a go-to stocking stuffer that you can easily pick-up at the drugstore. Now, moms should plan on adding the new Tide to Go Stain Eraser to their purses and stockings! It helps remove fresh grease stains while on the go, (holiday party food can be especially greasy) with a micro-fiber pad that breaks down stains and absorbs them. It also helps break down other stains such as coffee, salad dressing, olive oil, taco grease, pasta sauce, BBQ sauce, strawberry jam, grape juice, and ketchup. With 6 kids between the 2 of us, we’ll admit it, this is a CLOTHING LIFESAVER.

During the holiday season many of us welcome guests family and friends from out-of-town to come stay and celebrate. Be prepared for holiday houseguests (and unexpected visitors) this holiday season by washing your sheets in Downy for long lasting freshness and softness. I love knowing that my guests are on delicious smelling sheets! Using Downy Unstopables with your liquid Downy will add an extra boost of fresh scent. We also want to mention that Downy Unstopables makes the perfect stocking stuffer for your family’s fitness fanatic. They provide a fantastic freshness to your stinky active wear and workout gear that will last for up to twelve weeks out of storage!

T.J.Maxx and Marshall’s are two of our favorite shopping destinations during the holidays (and year round!)! We love that we can score designer brands at prices that are up to 60% less than department store prices. We know we can always find incredible on-trend fashion finds, gorgeous accessories and handbags, luxurious shoes, beauty products, gourmet food, toys and something for everyone on our list! We love that we can literally do a one-stop shopping experience for everyone on our list at these off-price retailers. During the holiday season, simplify your holiday shopping by shopping at T.J.Maxx and Marshall’s to score some maxxinista deals!

During the holiday season shipping special gifts to family and friends far away is something almost everyone has to do! We look to UPS as the gateway to getting our special gifts to the special people we bought them for! UPS makes shipping holiday gifts easy and convenient. UPS is the world’s largest package delivery company, not to mention a trusted brand. Whenever we see a “brown truck” drive down our street, we get excited! We know something is about to be delivered and during the holiday season, it’s even more exciting. We love that UPS My Choice is helping consumers this season by leaving notices on doors by providing registered members with free digital alerts the day before a package arrives. If the initial delivery time doesn’t work, there are options to reschedule or reroute the package. Holiday stress-saver!
