Paying back student loans can be a completely daunting process. The total amount due is usually so high that it seems like it is impossible to actually make any real progress on.

Since I found my way out of my student loans, I've got a couple of tips for you. You really want to payoff the bills ASAP so that you ultimately end up paying less in interest. Getting those student loans paid off is possible! Click through for 7 seemingly impossible ways to beat your debt! -By Anna Newell Jones

In just one day from now, the Toy Story movie franchise leaves its childhood behind - the original Toy Storymovie turns 18 on November 22nd. Welcome to adulthood, Toy Story! Over the last 18 years, we've all learned important life lessons while watching Toy Story grow from a small cast of characters within the walls of Andy's room to include friends (and enemies) at Sunnyside and beyond. If you're like me, I'm sure you're still wondering what those toys are up to, how they're adjusting to their new home, and how Andy's doing in college. Toy Story has become a part of our lives during these 18 years. While the list of lessons learned from Toy Storycould reach to infinity … and beyond! Here are my favorite 18 life lessons learned from Toy Story. -By Amy Lupold Bair

The convergence of Hanukkah and Thanksgiving: It last happened in 1888 and it won't happen again for another 77,798 years. For many Jewish Americans, this is not a trivial occasion, but rather a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate two holidays-one quintessentially American, the other wholly Jewish-at once. Here, ten designers, bloggers, and more share their creative approach to this most unlikely of events.

Thanksgiving may only happen once a year, but that doesn't mean you can't get inspired by this fan-favorite holiday and incorporate some Thanksgiving table ideas into your big day. That might mean influencing your menu or serving your food family-style, serving pies as desserts instead of cake (or in addition to), or decorating your tables with wheat, leaves, fall fruits, or a cornucopia. Thanksgiving really is full of inspiration that would be lovely on your wedding table as well. What is your favorite way to add some Thanksgiving to your wedding tables?

Maybe your school went so far as to make Native American headdresses as well, so that the pilgrims and the Native Americans could sit together in communal harmony. Now that we're all grown up, construction paper hats have lost their appeal, but we can still get into the historic Thanksgiving mood by borrowing some style tips from the pilgrims. Style tips from pilgrims? No, I'm not kidding! The pilgrims were some classy people! Check out my round-up of modern pilgrim style for examples. You can rock more than one this Thanksgiving holiday!

On November 24th, it will have been 20 years since the wonderful family movie Mrs. Doubtfire was released. Twenty years! I feel as old as Mrs. D hearing that! The movie became the second highest grossing film of 1993 (beaten only by Jurassic Park). It starred Robin Williams as voiceover actor Daniel who is out of work and in the middle of a divorce. His ex-wife, played by Sally Field, wins custody of their three children, and Daniel is devastated. Hearing that his ex intends to employ a nanny to mind the kids, he applies for the job in the disguise of tough Scottish nanny, Mrs. Doubtfire. Will he get the job? Is his stunt just a catastrophe waiting to happen? I won't spoil the plot for those who have yet to watch it! I think it's about time I dug my old VHS copy out and watched this classic movie again! Happy Birthday, Mrs. Doubtfire - you have certainly aged well! To celebrate the birthday of one heck of a good movie, here are some fun facts for all you Doubtfire fans. -By Suzanne Cowie

A bundt cake that can be sliced, a loaf cake that is easy to serve, or a layer cake that is filled with festive holiday flavors. A cake makes a wonderful centerpiece to any display and is always a delicious way to finish off a meal. If you are planning on baking this holiday season here are a few of my favorite holiday cakes. They'd be perfect for taking to a party or baking to entertain in your own home! - By Kelsey Banfield
