Remember last year when you swore you’d never volunteer to cook another Christmas dinner for all 45 of your family members?

Well, you must really love them, because you’re on deck to host yet again.

Thankfully, we’ve got your back. We’ve teamed up with Ghirardelli to bring you Holiday Hacks, a guide to saving your time, money and precious sanity this season.

Here you’ll find a bunch of insider tips, like how to score discounts on everything from cashmere sweaters to gift cards, and why a little “un-decorating” actually works wonders for your sanity. (Hint: Crystal gets tucked away; tinsel goes on display.)

We’ll also share our clever ideas for using those Ghirardelli Squares you love to indulge in this time of year. (Note: Santa much prefers peppermint bark to sugar cookies.)

Eighteen ways to survive the holidays--what could be a better gift than that?
