Place baking soda in a clean, empty plastic spice jar. Sprinkle on carpets, pillows and fabric furnishings before vaccuming for freshness. Store uncapped in your icebox or freezer to absorb odors. Later, use the baking soda as a gentle cleanser for countertops or your microwave.

Prepping dry ingredients ahead of time for the holiday baking & cooking.
Before all the chaos begins start pre-measuring all the dry ingredients for your holiday cooking and baking recipes. I prefer storing large recipes in empty jars. I also like to use those tiny storage containers from Tupperware for the spices needed for...pumpkin pie for example. Masking tape works just fine for labeling the containers and it removes easily for washing. On baking day all I have to do is reach for a jar, add the wet ingredients and bake. So easy! Spreads out the cost, too.
