Are you hosting a Thanksgiving gathering?

It’ll be here before you know it. The key to a stress-free turkey day is to PLAN AHEAD and to stay organized. Let’s start planning now so things will run smoothly the day of Thanksgiving, and you’ll actually be able to enjoy it! 😋

I’ve compiled some great Thanksgiving planning information into 3 FREE printable sheets as a fun and helpful Gobble Guide! This will get you organized in advance so that you can pull off an incredible gathering to enjoy with your friends and family. 😍

1.) Thanksgiving Menu Plan

Use this FREE printable as a plan to write out what you’re serving for a Thanksgiving menu. It also has space to write a grocery list!

2.) Thanksgiving Prep Timeline

Use this FREE printable as a checklist to prep ahead on tasks to make sure you’re on track as Thanksgiving approaches. It’ll let you know how soon to thaw the turkey, and tips on what can be made in advance.

3.) Thanksgiving Portions Cheat Sheet

Use this FREE printable as a cheat sheet to know how much food to make and how big of a turkey to buy for your crowd size.

Some additional Thanksgiving advice from me: 
  • I’ve pulled off a few Thanksgiving spreads on my own, but really I find if you can assign at least a few items to guests things don’t get as overwhelming.

  •  Don’t leave all the planning to the last minute if possible. Start looking for coupons, and sales now. Go HERE for tips on how you can get a FREE turkey.

  • Oven space can be an issue. With that said, if you have other small appliances that can help such as a slow cooker for warming mashed potatoes, toaster oven, or Nuwave oven for casseroles, this is helpful.

  • There’s no shame in using grocery store meal shortcuts like frozen pie dough, store bought stuffing mix, store bought pies, etc. In fact, we often use frozen Rhodes dinner rolls and breads as they are SO yummy and taste homemade! Do what works for you and keeps things simple!

  • Enjoy the holiday, be in the moment with your loved ones, and don’t try to make everything super perfect. It’ll all work out! 😀

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
