Entertaining is great fun but sometimes things don't go as planned. Today we have some hints and tips for sticky situations including quick tips for dealing with cake problems and ideas for getting guests to vacate your kitchen.


Next we'll chat with Joshua Becker, creator of and author of Simplify and Clutter Free with Kids. About 6 years ago, Joshua and his family switched from a traditional middle class lifestyle to a minimalist lifestyle. It's something many of us think about but then we get stuck on things like, "Do I really have to get rid of my china?" or "How do I get my kids on board?" or "My spouse won't do it so I can't". Joshua will share the truth about minimalist living with a family along with a few tips for getting over the rough spots.

Then we'll wrap up in Christmas Corner with our next DIY Christmas wreath project. I'm not going to give you the details here but let's just say the wine lover in your life would love to get one of these. And, if you're not into wreaths, we have 2 other gift ideas for the wine lover on your list.

Join us at noon ET (11am CT, 10am MT, 9am PT) on
