Holidays for me are all about spending time with family and friends and planning ahead to reduce the stress to the max! While it can be great to see all your friends and families, often you spend so much time running around, making sure everyone is having a good time, you can end up feeling exhausted. Some people find using cannabis products is a great way to help them relieve anxiety and you can learn more here. Though there is an option of countertop medication, many tend to now move towards cannabis and similar products. Western medication’s adverse side effects have put CBD at the forefront of discussions around chronic pain relief and a solution for stress and anxiety problems. You may want to consider the best CBD oil, edibles, or other products for relief from chronic pain, inflammation, or stress. Most people would prefer to cope with holiday stress a different way by being as prepared as possible. This can be the best way to make sure everything goes smoothly. Nonetheless, if you wish to indulge in CBD products, to help you ease up, then looking at providers like Blessed CBD, for acquiring them, can be a prudent option. However, if you’re not sure which CBD product will help you relax, it’s a good idea to speak with someone who has used these products before. It’s not simple to pick one, but if you’re determined to give it a try, use Full Spectrum CBD oil, which several researchers indicate is helpful for stress relief.
Dishes can add stress to your holiday gathering, when you prep, cook and entertain!
That’s why I want to share my tips for a Stress Free Holiday when it comes to dish and prep time:
Stress Free Holiday Tips
Prep Time means planning ahead
When you plan ahead, freezing options should definitely be in place and cooking ahead to reduce cooking time when your guests are about to arrive. My best tip is to cook and freeze it in a microwave safe container so you can heat it up in the microwave later, saving the washing time and all the work!
If I am expecting guests for brunch, I start cooking early in the morning, so by mid morning, all the food is cooked, the dishes are washed and the table is ready for our party!
I often purchase fancier paper/plastic plates, cups and silverware to help with clean up time! I leave my special holiday dishes on the table for display only.
I accept my guests help to clean up the table and sometimes to do some minor dish washing by hand and/or placing some dishes in the dish washer, after all, it is a group effort!
Samsung StormWash™ Dish Washer will help me this year, saving time, keeping my dishes cleaner and my most favorite feature is that it is soooooo quiet!!!
Here are some other features you should know:
StormWash™- A heavy-duty wash gets the messiest pots and pans thoroughly clean without pre-washing.
AutoDoor Release™- at the end of a cycle the door automatically pops open to circulate air and accelerate drying time.
FlexLoad™ racking- a flexible racking system makes it easy to fit various dishware shapes and sizes.
I love the controls on the top of the door which make it easy to read and program the dishwasher’s settings!

I love the design of this dishwasher. Having the controls on top gives it a sleek look. I never thought of using fancy disposable dishware. That is a great idea.
I like to do as much prep work ahead of time as I can for the holidays. They bring enough stress as it is so why add to it. That is one nice dishwasher.
That is smart to have the controls on top. Stress Free for the holidays sounds good to me. 🙂

These are great tips – and that’s a great-looking dishwasher! The holidays can be so stressful!
Thanks for sharing about this dishwasher! I’m actually on the hunt for a new one since our current one is so old and icky!
Yes agreed.! A lot of stressful, especially during holiday comes. Awesome tips for an easier and for better clean up things.
That is one gorgeous dishwasher!
I totally love how stress free you can make things with the right tools. I still do my hand wash only china on actual holidays, but otherwise have a set of Mikasa that goes in the dish washer.
Great tips! I cook ahead as much as I can. A great dishwasher is an absolute must anytime of the year, but especially during the holiday season.
I don’t know what I would do without my dishwasher, especially over the holidays. It looks like you found a quality product at Best Buy. Using disposable dishware helps too!

Yes it is that “stressful” time of year. The long “to do” lists that keep growing longer every day. All the tips are great to help us get though this very busy season.
We are a huge fan of nice disposable dishes for gatherings. I am also grateful we have a dishwasher. I am liking the specs on this one.
I agree 100%. I used to break out the china for company/family, but now just get nicer disposable dinnerware to make the clean up easier.
