It seems that once the creepy-crawlies from Halloween slink back into the shadows from whence they came, we immediately skip forward and start decking the halls. It’s never too early to get into the Christmas spirit, right?

Those of us already draped in tinsel (hey, don’t judge) and looking for ways to get ready for the season ought to appreciate these holiday life hacks. They’re such ridiculously inventive ideas, in fact, they might become yearly traditions!

Those sure are going to make things easier come holiday time, huh? We bet those pancakes are going to be an especially big hit.
