1) Never ever waste your time making instant oatmeal. It’s gross and isn’t all oatmeal really instant anyway?
2) It’s okay to make a pie with store bought filling. Everyone will eat it just the same.
3) You can get the Black Friday deals online on Thanksgiving morning so there is no reason to miss the turkey or to get up at an ungodly hour the day after when you are feeling sluggish and bloated.
4) Never buy a Christmas tree that is front heavy. It will be a long and disappointing holiday season. On a good note, you will never make that mistake twice!
5) Don’t become the rush around you. Take a moment to enjoy some solitude and just breathe.
