5 Tips to a Stress-Free Thanksgiving
With cleaning, shopping, setting the table, and all of the many, many dishes that will be used, the idea of hosting Thanksgiving can sway you in the opposite direction. Let’s be real, getting ready for Thanksgiving alone will be a major hurdle and you don’t need that kind of frustration during the holiday season. Whether this is your first time or twentieth time hosting the big feast, you would love to make Thanksgiving dinner easier for yourself. So, to help you out and make this your most stress-free Thanksgiving yet, we compiled a list of five tips and tricks for you to try out when Turkey Day comes.
Clear Your Counters
Keep your countertops clean and clear of unnecessary items, even the small appliances. The night before or even morning of, make sure all your counters are empty so when our guests arrive with their own dishes for the big feast, so you won’t be scrambling around trying to find space. If your counters are clear, then you can just plop them down and go back to hosting like a pro.
Pot-fillers are useful gadgets placed directly above the stove, providing easily accessible water. The foldable swing arms of this pot filler allow for an extendable reach of up to 20″ of length and provide long-lasting function due to their sturdy brass construction.
Focus on cleaning the guest areas. The living room, the dining room, the guest bathroom, clean any room that the guests will be in and out of. Don’t stress yourself out trying to clean the entire house when the guests will only be in three or four rooms in the house. Pro-tip: toss in any remaining clutter into an off-limits room and shut the door.
Easy Drinks and Snacks
Serve up appetizers and hor d’oeuvres that do not require cooking or chopping. Save yourself from the extra cooking by serving up nuts and olives, or cheese and grapes. Be smart, ask any willing guests to bring their own appetizer sets to the party. Don’t forget to keep the drinks coming by picking up bottles of wine or sparkling cider to serve instead of trying to make fancy cocktails.

Extra Fridge Space
Start clearing out your refrigerator and tossing anything that is old or expired. Once the turkey dinner is done, you’ll be left with a lot of leftovers and not everything will fit your fridge. So, start making room in your fridge so you can fit that extra pumpkin pie or leftover mashed potato in and keep yourself stress-free.
Clean as you go. Throughout the day, clean the small utensils you use so that you will not be stuck cleaning them after the party. Do that and you will notice how stress-free it is because you reduced the dishes buildup. Pro-tip: clean up the dishes before serving dessert. It will give time for your guests to relax and digest and will reduce the number of dishes for you to clean later on.
