Ah, Thanksgiving! Known to be one of the most monumental holidays in a home, it can also be the most eventful (and for the wrong reasons)! From burning the turkey to the dog running out the door as your greet guests, there a variety of different things that can occur — but here are some ways to prevent those from happening:
Keep it Cool
Afraid that all that turkey day cooking will heat your home up to new heights? Before you have to turn the AC on, take a second to open the windows in your kitchen. Not only will this help alleviate the heat, but it will also help save energy since you won’t have to use your air conditioner. If you want to take it up another notch, then it’s best to turn the exhaust fan on since that will help get rid of that classic stovetop heat and steam.
Another way to prevent any Thanksgiving mishaps is to prepare early. Sure, this might seem self-explanatory — but there’s always the possibility of gathering all of your holiday essentials right before the first guest arrives. If you’re looking to keep things stress-free and organized, then we suggest creating a game plan of what you’ll be cooking, where your guests will be sitting, and what needs to be done before the first one arrives. Once you have this settled, you’ll be good to go!
Make a Sign
Are you frightened that one of your guests might clog the toilet on the big day? If that’s the case, then we suggest making a fun little sign to place in your bathroom, stating what can be flushed and what must be thrown out. This will not only keep your toilet problem-free, but it will also keep you worry-free if anyone tries to throw their least favorite side-dish down the toilet.
