My Thanksgiving Master Grocery List

I am not going to buy the produce until the day or two before Thanksgiving.

I will have to go through my cleaners to see what (if anything) I need, but I still put it on here to remind me not to skip that aisle.

I have a lot of this stuff already (especially the spices), so those I will just mark off.

When making your "master" list, save a copy, but also make a copy of it to be edited as to what you need (I just label mine Master Thanksgiving Grocery List and Edited Thxgvg Grocery List...I copy the entire master list onto the edited and then make deletions or additions as needed). Also, I have some one time items on here (such as a flat whisk), that will come off my master list, as soon as they are bought. The gadgets/supplies category will still remain on the list, though, so I can add things next year if need be (if I delete the category, I may forget things I need next year).

2pm Tami, unless you want to help:)

Thanks Nichole, it helps me to have it broken down by aisle. Saves me from wandering back & forth between the aisles.~C
