- Now is the time to finalize your Thanksgiving guest list. Take care of the calls, emails, and texts to finalize who is coming to your house for the big turkey meal. Let your family know who will be joining you for Thanksgiving and let them know you will need everyone’s help in getting your home ready.
- It is time to clear away any dining room clutter. The entire family can help. As a part of playtime, children can return toys and arts and crafts to their bedrooms. You and your spouse can put away items which don’t belong in the dining room. Resist hiding the clutter in a bedroom or closet to be dealt with later. If your dining room (kitchen, pantry, entryway) is buried, and clearing it out seems like an impossible task, a professional organizer can help.
