TikTok 'granfluencer' Barbara 'Babs' Costello has once again been hailed a 'genius' after sharing her hack for taking Thanksgiving leftovers to-go this holiday season. 

The 74-year-old, who is known as @brunchwithbabs on social media, went viral last week after divulging her go-to move for sending guests home with holiday leftovers — without giving away her Tupperware. 

'Try disposable cupcake tins,' Costello advised. 'Set up the leftover station and have your guests help themselves.'

The 74-year-old advised using disposable cupcake tins with plastic lids

The footage showed the grandmother of eight filling the cups with various casseroles and sides before covering the tin with a plastic lid.

'[They're] the perfect serving size for leftovers. They get a little bit of everything,' she explained. 'The best part [is they] can go right in your oven for leftovers the next day.'

She removed the plastic lid from the tin and popped it into the oven to show how the containers are also a timesaver. 

'The only way to do leftovers on Thanksgiving,' she wrote in the caption. 

Costello, who calls herself 'everyone's grandma,' has more than 2.8 million followers on the platform thanks to her brilliant kitchen tips, tricks, and hacks that often go viral.

'That's so damn smart. Why didn't I ever think of this,' one fan gushed, while someone else added: 'Love this cuz then it's all separated.'

'Babs slays again,' another agreed. 

However, some people noted that the cupcake tin's portion sizes were far too small for their food-loving families.

'Why do you think that's enough for me,' one viewer joked. 

'Not nearly enough leftovers,' another claimed. 'But very smart.'
