The holiday season is finally upon us. As family and friends gather at our houses we must be sure that everything goes right. This time of year also puts the most stress on our appliances. Whether it’s preparing all of our favorite holiday meals and treats in our ovens, storing them in our refrigerators and freezers and cleaning all of our dishes after the big meal in our dishwashers, we are using our appliances more than usual. So how can we prepare ourselves and our appliances for all of this holiday chaos? Here are a few tips.
Don’t put away your Christmas wrapping paper yet, use any scraps and leftover ribbon and turn them into your New Year’s Eve party confetti.
You can use your paper shredder to easily create perfect strips, or try a hole punch to cut out perfect circles from shiny ribbon. Of course scissors works just as well. You can try folding the paper first to save time before cutting and to make more uniform strips.
Other ideas on what to do with left over wrapping paper come from www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com, who suggests using the paper as mailing packaging material, creating ribbons or lining your drawer with it.
