Finishing Up The Dining Room – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool


Happy Friday! Today is the last day in Zone 1 for this month. Keep in mind that Thanksgiving is just around the corner. What do you need to do to make it easier for you to prepare for Thanksgiving?

If you need to clean under your Dining Room table, let’s work on that today. If you have a china cabinet or hutch in your dining room, detail dust it. If you need to get serving platters and bowls washed and ready for Thanksgiving, work on that. If your dining room looks ready for company, then check the entryway and other areas where you entertain. A little work each day will make it less stressful for you to have people over for the Holidays.

If you are cooking for Thanksgiving, start your menu planning and list making today.

Have a great week-end!
