Get Ready To Celebrate!
1. Smart Planning
Involve your family in the fun of preparing for a party. For big gatherings, shop two weeks before the event for nonperishable and frozen items. Keep ingredients all together in bags in one area of your pantry or freezer, instead of storing them with your everyday items. Shop three to five days ahead for perishables, and try to keep the day-before-the-party shopping list to fewer than 10 items.
