Some of us who are sticking close to home will also be preparing Thanksgiving dinner. Make a list of you much needed ingredients before you head out to the store.  This way you won’t be overwhelmed and can check them out as you go. Also, don’t forget to bring your coupons to save at checkout.

Don’t Forget the Kid’s Table

      If you are hosting this year's festivities don’t forget about your guest with kids.   Make the kid’s table somewhere where they want to sit. Have kid friendly activities (. i.e. parchment paper). Also, serve the desserts that they will be sure to enjoy.

Also, make sure you shop with caution. The crowds can be hectic especially when it comes to sales. 

 If you don’t want to deal with all that you can also shop online or support your local business owners on Small Business Saturday. Be on the lookout for a certain blog for a deal. We will keep you posted on the awesome deals including ours.
