It often feels like the holidays just sneak up on you—one minute you’re hanging spiderwebs and making cute Halloween costumes, then before you know it you’re surrounded by Christmas carols and holiday ads!
This year, we’d like to help you get a head start on your holiday season with a few of these tips for saving time, money and your sanity as you plan your Thanksgiving celebration:
- Let Us Send Your Invitations for You for FREE! The Tiny Prints Mailing Service is a fabulous new feature that is sure to save you time and money. All you have to do is upload your guests’ mailing addresses and we’ll add them to your envelopes along with your return address and real stamps. Then we’ll drop them in the mail for you! All you have to do is pay for the cost of stamps and envelope printing—saving you time and the cost of shipping your order to you.
- Host a Potluck Buffet. Sit-down dinners will always be elegant, but a buffet-style meal will be the easiest way for you to feed a hungry crowd without feeling overwhelmed. To simplify things even more, host a potluck buffet—you make this super simple turkey from the Food Network and stuffing, but ask your guests to bring the side dishes and dessert!
- Use Make-Ahead Thanksgiving Recipes. Just because you are hosting a Thanksgiving celebration doesn’t mean you have to be cooped up in the kitchen all day! Give yourself some extra time with these delicious make-ahead recipes from Good Housekeeping.
