Top 10 Holiday Movies

Top 10 Holiday Movies

December 22, 2020

We are trying something different today as we have crowdsourced from you our EPOP community, over on Instagram, all of your favorite holiday movies. We had you list your top 5 by rank and each number had a point amount which ended up giving us the top 10...yes, there was math, and yes, we did use a calculator because we are all business here 🤪.

Thank you so much for everyone that participated and if you enjoy this style of episode then we would love to do more in the future. Let us know over on Instagram if you want us to do more of these!

Did your favorite movie make the list? Do you want to see more crowdsourcing type episodes in the future? Let us know by tagging us in a post on Instagram at @ExtraPackofPeanuts.

The Best Gifts For Travelers 2020 (Podcast)

The Best Gifts For Travelers 2020 (Podcast)

November 10, 2020

We are doing things a little different this time around because, well...2020 has been a different type of year. This year we are keeping our list to only 20 travel items that are great for regular travel, of course, but are also useful right now during COVID which means these items are good for everyday life and for current travel life (domestic travel in the US, road trips, and staycations).

From less than $5 to over $1,000, and with gifts ranging from backpacks to books and from kids to COVID items, there’s something here for everyone. Here are the best gifts for travelers (even during COVID) – so start shopping and happy holidays!
