Ten Essential Thanksgiving Planning Tips


Tip #2: Scan supermarket ads to take advantage of sales and special offers, and shop thrift stores and discount outlets for inexpensive decorative accessories for the table.

Your table décor can make you look like a pro!

Because my table décor is an important part of our celebration, I include a quick trip to nearby thrift stores as part of my preparation. There’s no telling what inexpensive treasures I’ll discover – turkey salad plates, little pilgrim statues, amber glassware to complement my seasonal color theme. It’s the thrill of the hunt, and when I budget enough time a week or two before Thanksgiving, it can be a satisfying experience that adds an extra element of fun to the celebration.
