Getting on the road

AAA projects 50.9 million Americans will be traveling 50 or more miles this Thanksgiving, the highest in 10 years. So whether you’re the one traveling, or your family and friends are coming to you, make sure to plan your travel and be prepared for the traffic.

Save space in your fridge!

Use an ice chest/cooler as a second fridge to help you save space on the big day! All of those tiny items (pickles, condiments, leftovers) that take up valuable refrigerator real estate can be held in a cooler to give you more room for your most important Thanksgiving foods.

It’s a busy day for plumbers

Make sure to follow their tips on how to keep all of your drains unclogged so you aren’t faced with an unnecessary expense this season.
