Thanksgiving is in 3 weeks. Now is the time to start thinking about how to get your house ready for holiday guests. If you do little tasks between now and then your holiday experience should be a lot less stressful.
Calibrate your heat.
This is great advice whether or not you plan to host Thanksgiving. Take the time to check all your heat vents and close the ones in areas you don’t use. You can also see how much air flow you need in each room and adjust the vents accordingly. This will help make sure you, your family and your guests are comfortable.
Start figuring out what you are making for Thanksgiving dinner.
Now is the time to start taking stock of your kitchen. Not only do you want to make sure that you have everything for your meal you want to make sure that it will fit in your kitchen. It might be time to clean out your freezer so you can store a turkey. You also want to make sure that if you are hosting guests over the weekend you can fit extras, like coffee and bread, into the pantry.
Dust your ceiling fans.
It’s amazing how much dust and dirt can collect out of sight. With allergies so prevalent these days keeping the dust and dirt out is a must when having guests over to your home. Along that line now could also be the time to get your vacuum checked and repaired if necessary.
Clean your oven.
