Full disclosure: I am eating a snickerdoodle cookie as I write this. But, despite this sugar-crusted cookie's presence in my hand (and the existence of its 11 compatriots on my kitchen counter), there's nothing I dislike more than that too-full, sugar-packed feeling of leaving a holiday party with too much in my belly. To lend a helping hand to fellow snickerdoodle (and pie and charcuterie and cheese plate) lovers, here are five strategies to help you avoid overeating while still savoring every moment of all the holiday parties to come.

Name: Mary and Brandon Location: Plateau Mont-Royal — Montreal, Canada Size: 900 square feet Years lived in: Rented, 2 years Mary, a cook and artist who grew up in Halifax, Nova Scotia, shares this rental with Brandon, a software developer who grew up in Florida and moved to Montreal in 2011. Though they've both called Montreal home for years, they consider this apartment their true first home.

A lovely piece by Tara Ward at The Spinoff looks at the question that dogs the Shed of the Year competition each year. She argues that to make it to the finals, a shed must be unique, include interesting historical features, enjoy a pleasant outlook, and - controversially - be able to survive nuclear fallout. Here's a snippet: Dylan Thomas’ writing hut sits perched on a cliff in Wales, enveloped by the calming serenity of the sky and sea. In Scotland, a boat wheelhouse shed gazes out into the wild North Sea and feasts upon a view of dolphins and submarines. It’s so inspiring and beautiful I want to cry tears of tiny cabin joy.
