Boy, it’s been a busy week here. How about yours?
And to think that Thanksgiving is right around the corner! YIKES!
There are a few things you can do this weekend to give you a leg up. First, did you pick up your copy of Dance Through Thanksgiving? That report will give you all sorts of shortcuts, and even take you step-by-step through making a knock-out traditional dinner. And if you’re a member over at Rebel With a Fork – you’ll have even more recipes, and great fast recipes to get you through the weeknight time overload shuffle with extra energy to burn.
Did you look at the grocery store sale papers this week?
All of the baking supplies are on sale. Don’t only be thinking about Thanksgiving dessert, think about holiday parties, holiday gifts, cookies, … I always grab butter when it’s on sale and throw it in the freezer. We’ve gotten so spoiled that we have home-baked cookies a lot more often. We can hardly stomach the store-bought stuff anymore.
This week, you should pick up all of the non-perishables you’ll need for your big Thanksgiving dinner. Don’t forget things like dishes, glasses, silverware, a good knife for cutting the turkey, napkins, tablecloth, etc. There’s a great list in Dance Through Thanksgiving.
Give your house a good top-to-bottom cleaning. If you already follow Secret Confessions of a Clean Freak, this won’t be much of a problem, will it? 😉
Just those few extra little things will make your life so much easier in a couple weeks!
Oh, you’re thinking – Yeah, I know, but I’m busy. I’ll get to it later…”
Listen, I’m filling the new website, the spa is going through a computer system conversion this weekend, there’s hours of extra training and prep work, I’m super busy too. And I know that I’ll always be super busy. It never stops, does it? My whole secret is knocking little things off ahead of time or I’ll never make it.
You’re going to the grocery store anyway. Make your Thanksgiving dinner list and buy those few extra things this week. You’ll save time and sanity, and you’ll break down the expense so you’re not taking the hit all at one time. (the same principle works for Christmas shopping too)
I know – nag, nag, nag. You’ll thank me later 😉
