Lifesaving Apps to Keep You Sane During the Holidays

What joy! The cold has come, you hear “Jingle Bells” playing everywhere you go, and your grandmother is texting you – of all people – wondering if you have anti-fungal cream for her stay in a week. Yes, the holidays are approaching and in addition to your job piling on the work, your home life is no longer a refuge. Your children are getting antsy wondering if they’re going to get those cool mini drones to fly around. And you’re stressed out because your house is a mess and your grandmother and your cousin’s family are all staying with you over the holidays. And you haven’t even had the chance to go shopping or stock up the pantry for the extra mouths to feed. For this festive occasion, instead of being a total wreck, why not load up on some lifesaving apps to calm you during the holidays?

1. ShopSavvy

Created by the toilet paper maker Charmin, this app helps you locate clean “sittable” bathrooms on your route. This app will also tell you which bathrooms are “squattable” and not so clean to use. And if you have children, boy will this be a lifesaver for you! This free app is available for iOS and Android.
