Thanksgiving is an event that families all over the country look forward to every year, but the truth is that COVID-19 spreads easily from person-to-person. It is easy to get bogged down by the responsibility of keeping yourself and your family safe, but now it is time to flip the script and make space for the things that you can still be thankful for.

This Thanksgiving is the perfect time to create new memories and long-lasting traditions!

Perhaps you can come up with some money saving options for a scaled down Thanksgiving that you can pass down for years to come. Try these ideas:

  • Plan a menu of just FIVE items. Carefully look through your best recipes and choose your must-haves for the holiday.
  • Host a potluck with a limited number of friends. If you are able to social distance, hosting a potluck with a few people who you trust have been carefully following the COVID-19 protocols might be the best compromise.
  • Order and enjoy a “Thanksgiving-in-a-box” from a local favorite.
  • “Zoomsgiving”. Ask your family if they would like to spend some time enjoying their meal over a Zoom, FaceTime, Skype or video call. Catch up on the family news and see all their lovely faces from the comfort and safety of your living space.
