You've been storing your Christmas cookies wrong – here’s how to keep them fresh for much longer

A NIFTY mother of four has come up with a way to recycle old containers and turn them into festive packages for her homemade cookies.

Plus, since most of her packages are made for food, they’ll keep the cookies fresh.

“Do not throw out your empty chips and foil containers,” the mom, named Shannon Doherty, instructed in a video she posted to TikTok.

“Instead, grab some festive wrapping paper and wrap the containers.

“Fill them with your favorite Christmas cookies and tie them with a bow,” she suggested.

“Perfect reusable cookie tin!” she concluded.

Her finished products looked like professionally made cookie storage boxes that will add holiday cheer to any home – and her fans were pleased.

“This is a great holiday upcycle for wrapping cookies!” one follower exclaimed.

“Wonderful, easy, fun idea!” another added.

The holiday time has allowed savvy moms and hack-loving TikTokers to learn and share new tips and tricks for preparing for the holiday season.

One woman revealed the way she strings the lights on her Christmas tree – and it's much easier than having to walk in circles over and over again as many usually do.

Another user said it’s better to cluster ball ornaments together than to hang them individually. 

In order to do this, she fastened several ornaments together with a zip tie and then hung them on the tree for a fuller effect.

Of course, there’s a tip for handling the presents that go underneath the tree as well. 

One former “nosy kid” revealed how to prevent children from discovering which presents are theirs ahead of Christmas.
