H-Have a Plan. Make a list and check it twice. This mantra couldn’t be more accurate when it comes to tackling the holiday gift giving season. Write down everyone you’re going to buy for (and I do mean everyone.) By adhering to THE LIST, you will avoid standing smack dab in the middle of a mall with carolers, screaming children and hurried shoppers, scratching your head and asking yourself: Who’s gift is this going to be?? *Feel free to also make additional lists for party prep, holiday cards and holiday home decor. Sorry if this is starting to sound like a “tweet” from Martha Stewart.

If you rent roller skates, mens skates or bowling shoes, you could be exposing yourself to the virus that causes plantar warts.

While you may be spending a few extra dollars on footwear, you could be preventing plantar warts from affecting you.
Lay towels on the bathroom floor and fill up the tub with warm water. Let your kids wear their bathing suits and sit on the side of the tub and kick their feet, or get in and splash or squirt water guns. They’ll love their mini “pool” and all it will cost you is a load of laundry. Top off your party with cold lemonade, or ice cube tray popsicles made from Kool-aid.
