4 Holiday Errands To Let Your Smartphone Run
Before I share the 4 errands to let your smartphone run, let me share how to get this all done. This is a sponsored post on behalf of Verizon Wireless. Without Verizon service, reliability and possibility of Santa Claus coming to town may not be a reality. Today’s challenges of time and location make shopping a journey. Take the holiday season with Verizon Wireless and allow holiday mirth and merriment be yours. An app is only as good as the provider it’s on. If you don’t have Verizon, my suggestion is gift yourself this season!
1. Wisemen and Women Come Bringing Gifts Of Food
It’s true there is no place like home for the holidays, but you better pre-order your gifts that you will be bearing. Happiness and all the trimmings come at a small expense. Smartphones run on apps, so use them. Use those food apps to order ham from the most popular vendor – Honeybaked Ham, fruit baskets, and don’t forget those party trays from Chick-fil-A. Remember, guests are welcome in all houses, but you need to bring the good tidings with you! The doors at all homes will swing wide open and you won’t have to worry that ‘baby it’s cold outside!’
2. Package It Up
Seriously, if you have shopped for toys for good girls and boys, and they are not residing in your home, it’s time to ship them. Use an App on your phone to set up pickup dates from your favorite couriers like UPS:)
3. Effortlessly Coordinate Family
If you find yourself saying, “All I want for Christmas is organization!” you are in luck. How do you round up the troops, tell everyone what you need to and only say it once? It’s called group texting. Albeit one of the most annoying nuisances, it’s also the most incredible gift.
Send your holiday best, rather than ranting and raving at your kids and partner! Let the silver bells ring (or is that a text chime?) and tell everyone what they need to do in a Group Chat Text Message! Oh, the power of the smartphone. Let your fingers do the walking and let them all do the squawking!
4. It’s Snow Wonder that…
It’s snow wonder that Santa is exhausted the day after Christmas because he runs like a madman to get it all done! Your smartphone is Santa’s best elf! Power it up, keep it charged, be an App addict and shop till you drop, pre-order and head on in to grab a store pickup! Less time in the store, less time with the crowds and as a final bonus you are saving money. You did not get tempted to buy 100 things you don’t need rather: You came, you picked up and you headed right to the rooftop to load your sleigh!
Apps to consider: Walmart, Amazon, Whole Foods, Best Buy, Target and more. Shop through your app, and head to the store for pickup. Did someone say Santa Claus is coming to town?
Have a Cool Yule and Swell Noel
May all the happiness and all the trimmings be divine. You will find you saved so much time you can indulge in the kiss under the mistletoe & selfie while you do. Share the picture with all you love, using your great Verizon service. Snap, Tweet, IG, post your love of the holiday to the world. Remember your smartphone made it easier for you to survive the holidays.

May you find success in the use of Apps, and may the closeness of friends, the comfort of home, and the unity of our nation renew your spirits this holiday season! Now on Dancer, Dasher, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donder, Blitzen it’s time to head back to the Northpole. What’s that reindeer? You can’t remember your way? Fear not, Google it & to all a Good night! ~DANA
