FREE Thanksgiving Planner Printables
Download your FREE Thanksgiving Planner Printables and make planning Thanksgiving festivities a breeze this year!
Now that the last trick-or-treater has left your front door with their stinky feet, you have approximately 3 1/2 weeks until your family and friends will gather around your table for a Thanksgiving feast.
It doesn’t matter if this is your first year to roast the turkey or you have an advanced degree in pulling off an amazing family gathering without a hitch.. planning always makes things run smoother.
That is why I love these FREE Thanksgiving Planner Printables so much! This Planner is 8 pages of practical steps to ensure you find the perfect dessert recipe, don’t forget the thyme for the turkey rub, and still have time to shower Thanksgiving morning before your guests arrive!
Master To-Do List
Of course you have to get organized. It helps to have a master to-do list to write down everything that needs to get done. You can just brainstorm everything from decorations to guest list to a reminder to find that killer apple pie recipe. You know the one with caramel!
Speaking of caramel apple pie, this page would be great to actually plan out the main event. There are separate areas for appetizers, main dinner, dessert, and drinks.
Master Guest List
Don’t wait until the week before Thanksgiving to invite your friends and family to come! Oh wait.. only I do that. Ha. But seriously, even if you host every single year and you know exactly who is coming… this is a great printable page. Families change. Kids get older. Plus ones are added or deleted depending on the latest snapchat filter. This way you can keep everyone.. and their contact information, sorted out.
Thanksgiving Day Schedule
Every year you go through the same drill. The night before Thanksgiving you are mentally calculating when you have to crawl out of bed in order to get the turkey in the oven in time for dinner.
Also, you can’t forget to turn on Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!
Thanksgiving Recipe Cards
Do you tend to prepare the same 3 or 4 recipes every year? Why not write them down in a special Thanksgiving Day recipe card set? That way, you don’t have to dig for them every year. AND.. If you stumble upon the best recipe ever for yeast rolls this year, you can just add it to the list!
Grocery Shopping List
Don’t be tempted by those turkey shaped cookie cutters and pumpkin flavored rice. Blegh. Stick to your list. This printable will help!
Thanksgiving Budget Tracker
I think this might be my favorite part of the FREE Thanksgiving Planner Printables… the budget tracker!
Now you won’t overspend on an impulse box of chocolates you don’t want your kids eating anyway.
