Whether its your 1st or your 50th Thanksgiving meal that you’re hosting, you still probably panic a little just thinking about the day. Here at Innovatively Organized, we love the holiday because we can implement our productivity skills into planning the meal. To help you stress a little less this Thanksgiving, we want to share with you some productivity tips that will help you execute a successful thanksgiving meal. Here are our Thanksgiving Productivity Tips:
Create a schedule
Create a schedule this weekend to plan for the big day. Break down the holiday feast into phases such as planning, shopping, prep, cooking, serving, cleaning, etc.
Make a to-do list
Write out your to-do list for each phase. You’ll be really glad you wrote down potatoes on your grocery list when you almost forget to buy them at the store.
Delegate to family members
Delegate certain tasks to family members, whether its certain parts of the cooking process or simply part of your shopping list. You can also assign certain family members a certain dish to bring so that you don’t have to do all of the cooking. Hosting a Thanksgiving dinner is a lot less stressful when others help you out.
Don’t try to do everything at once
As long as you plan out your time effectively and implement the previous tips, you won’t have to worry about this tip. However, just remember that no one can do everything at once! You should relax and enjoy the holiday.
