Holiday cards are simultaneously joyous and stressful to me. It’s not that I don’t enjoy snapping a family photo, select a pretty design to frame it in and track down the most up-to-date mailing addresses of all your family and friends.

Without endless products and procedures to ensure it behaved.

Skybell Video Doorbell: Package Theft

This post was created in partnership with Skybell

In a perfect world, you’d brave the mall (and miraculously find everything you need on the shelves) this holiday season. But retail isn’t what it used to be and, quite frankly, you’re busy. Shopping online and having gifts delivered straight to your door offers convenience you can’t put a price on, but if the packages are stolen off your front porch (as they have been from mine), all the convenience goes out the window.

According to recent reports, a whopping 11 million Americans had packages stolen straight off their doorstep last year. So-called “porch pirates” will often trail behind delivery trucks, then brazenly walk up to your front door and grab what’s been left.

3 Browser Extensions That Will Help You Win Cyber Monday

Cyber Monday

Black Friday isn’t even over yet and you’re already thinking about the deals you might be able to score on Cyber Monday— you get top marks, shopping genius! My favorite part about the online-only retail holiday: You don’t have to leave your couch (and since your pants are probably still unbuttoned from Thanksgiving, that works!). But unless you have a perfectly edited shopping list—with well-researched coupons that you already know exist and can be applied—it can be tough to keep tabs on the range of savings that are out there to be had. Things move fast.
