The Thanksgiving Shopping List

Along with the menu planner, the shopping list is a must for holiday organization. Plan before you head to the grocery store so that you don’t have to go back to a busy store once you have already started cooking.

If you are hosting Thanksgiving you may need to prepare your home for extra people. You should buy the ingredients that are required for the recipes you are bringing to the gathering, but don’t forget other essential items. Having plenty of ice, refilling the table salt and pepper shakers, or getting plenty of hand soap and bathroom tissue can be just as important at the menu.

Consider celebrating Thanksgiving with less plastic waste this year

Our previous blog shared a few ideas for how you could make more environmentally friendly choices this Thanksgiving. Include some Eco-conscious choices in your Thanksgiving plan this year to reduce the amount of plastic waste.

Choose bamboo products instead of plastics. Use washable fabric table linens instead of plastic disposable versions of table decor. You can also share the responsibility of washing the dishes.
