I love it when useful kitchen or holiday hack videos are posted up on YouTube because they always show things that I would never, in a million years, have thought of. I think I’m the kind of mom that likes to make things as absolutely difficult for myself as possible. For instance, if I ran out of wrapping paper I’d pack everything up and run to the store and buy more instead of repurposing an old paper grocery bag or my kids craft paper, like this video posted on the What’s Up Moms YouTube page suggests.
I couldn’t find advent calendars anywhere this year (to be fair I only looked on November 31 and the one store I was at didn’t have any), but had I seen this video before I could have made my own using my muffin tins, and my kids probably would have loved it.
From how to chill that bottle of champagne at the last minute, how to make your own advent calendars using a muffin tin and how to use a carboard wrapping paper tube to fill your tree with water, everyone needs to know these helpful christmas hacks!
