It's Cookie Season!

Keep organized this holiday season with tips for cleaning up the clutter of wrapping paper, cookie cutters, and more.

Bake in Bulk


Designate time to spend in the kitchen making batches of cookies to freeze. Treats will keep for up to a month packed in plastic containers and cushioned with wax paper.

Cookie Cutters Sans the Clutter


For organization and easy access, sort shapes by celebration (Christmas, Hanukkah, Valentine's Day, Halloween), then hang groupings on belt or scarf rings.

Razzle-Dazzle Them


'Tis the season to go all out when decorating. Be sure to have plenty of brightly colored sprinkles and sugars on hand.

It's a Wrap


Homemade goodies make great (yummy!) gifts. Show off your creations in cellophane bags, tie them with pretty ribbons, add tags, and--voilá--the perfect way to spread joy and good cheer.
