Cheatsgiving: Send Us Your Stories For A Chance To Win $250 In Spa Treatments!

By  | 


Thanksgiving is fast approaching and here on Mommyish we have decided to celebrate Cheatsgiving Style! What is Cheatsgiving you may ask? It’s our favorite ways to avoid the hassle that comes with cooking for/seeing all of your friends and relatives on the fourth Thursday in November. This includes recipes, hacks, tricks and tips for making it through the festivities with your sanity intact.

In honor of this newly minted, Mommyish approved holiday, we’re asking Mommyish readers to submit their best Cheatsgiving recipes and stories. These can involve anything from time-saving recipes to your favorite tricks to distracting/avoiding your annoying drunk uncle.

If there is one thing I know about having kids and preparing food for the holidays, it’s that there ain’t no shame in using  store-bought pie crust. Canned soup? No problem! Forgetting the turkey and ordering a pizza? No problem either. Recipes that involve copious amounts of booze to deal with your annoying relatives? Hit us up.

So send us everything you’ve got that makes your life easier on Thanksgiving. You can write us about dealing with family members, ways to keep your kids amused, ways to keep your kids out of your hair, and ways to keep your in-laws from walking in on you while you nurse your baby.

How To Enter:

  • Please email it to MommyishEntries AT alloydigital DOT com
  • Please note “Cheatsgiving” in your subject headline and include: your first and last name, date of birth and complete mailing address along with the submission.
  • Your submission should be at least 200 words.

We will run our favorites starting now and the contest will end on 11/21 at 11:59pm EST. Then the voting begins! Mommyish readers will choose their favorite Cheatsgiving tips and tricks. The voting will take place here on Mommyish and end on 11/26 11:59pm EST with the winning submission will be announced on Facebook on 11/27 (so if you don’t like us on Facebook yet, you should probably do that here).
