Now here’s a tip

• This year, some friends and I came up with the brilliant idea of having a Christmas card swap. We all have leftovers from years gone by, but we can’t remember whom we sent them to. We got together for coffee and swapped leftover cards. One of the group is very computer savvy, and she had us bring our address books so she could print labels for us. It’s wonderful, and we expect to do this for as many years as we can.

• Recipe Substitutions: If you need 1 cup of self-rising flour, use 1 cup of all-purpose flour plus 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt.

• What’s on sale in December: Candles, loss-leader items (ask for rain checks when available) and after-holiday sales on cards, decorations and small gifts.

• Need an emergency ornament hook? Unfold a paper clip to get a hook on either side. Hang away!

• Just a reminder: The American Dental Association recommends replacing your toothbrush every three to four months. As the bristles get frayed, its effectiveness is reduced. So while you are out shopping for friends and family, pick up something for yourself!
