The Toys for Tots campaign is coming to a close here pretty quickly so if you haven’t had a chance to donate yet, you still have a little time. To help you do that, there is a big collection going on right now at American Home Furnishing’s parking lot in northeast Albuquerque near Menaul and Carlisle.

Thriftown is helping you get crafty with your gifts for the holidays, while saving you a lot of money. Starting, Thriftown will be showing us how to make simple, but brilliant gift ideas all the way up until Christmas. Let’s see what’s in store for the first day of Thriftmas.

The year is winding down, which means it’s time to start thinking about your taxes if you want to minimize some of the pain of April 15. Financial advisor and vice president of Charles Schwab and Company, Mike Bonds, is here with some simple steps you can take before the end of the year.

Sweet, crunchy and sometimes spicy popcorn make for a great snack and perfect holiday gifts. One local business is doing it just right with so many unique flavors! Jim Walker, owner of Walker’s Popcorn Company, is here with me with some great popcorn gifts!

The Mommy McGyvers are talking all about how you can add a little to spice up your home during the holidays.

There’s a local shop in the NorthValley helping folks get their cookie fix. Cravin’ Cookies and More makes those fresh, homemade cookies and desserts to die for! And they’re all made from scratch by the owner Barb Hivelywho. She shows us how to make and decorate holiday cookies.

Despite all of this recent snow and the rainstorms last summer our entire state is in a drought. Here to talk about climate change in New Mexico is Doctor Spenser Lucas, curator with the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science.

Mommy McGyver Tips

Do you want to give your home a face-lift for the holidays but need something easy that won’t break the bank? Here are two simple tips:

  1. Shake up the color! Replacing pillows, drapes, table cloths, etc… can give your room a whole new trendy look.
  2. Rearrange pictures on the wall. By simply updating your pictures and moving those around you can give the room a fresh look.
