(NECN) – The holidays can be really stressful, but Bryce Gruber, editor of the is here to help us simplify and de-stress.

But how do you do that?

Gruber suggests WAZE, it’s an app you can download that is useful if you plan on driving anywhere this holiday season. It’s a social navigation tool that gives you alternate routes, allows you to find cheaper gas, see icons for police and allow you to check in.

If you are shopping, Gruber suggests doing as much shopping online as you can.

She says research shows the best deals are online. You can get free shipping, more discount codes, a better selection and all sorts of good stuff.

Gruber says if you have to go to the store, remember that the sales associates are your friends. Don’t be mean and don’t blow them off, she says.
