Okay, so maybe it’s a little late to start planning Thanksgiving dinner. But so you’re ready for next year, here are the best planners and guides I found on the web.
Epicurious Thanksgiving Planning Guide
Starting at 6 weeks, this is super-detailed. Includes links to more specific tasks (like a menu planner).
Martha Stewart Thanksgiving Checklist
A printable 3 pager that focuses on the week before the big day from the Queen of all planners.
Food.com Menu Planner
Not really a checklist, this is a selection of different menus for Thanksgiving. From traditional to budget friendly and everything in between. Links to recipes, of course.
Better Homes and Garden Thanksgiving Countdown
Another detailed planner that includes the after dinner cleanup! You can print it, too, by using the PRINT button at the top of the article.
This one starts 4 weeks out and is also quite detailed. What I liked about this one was all the helpful links appropriate to each section – videos on how to cook things and recipe suggestions.
Just the basics, here, but this is an excellent outline (some of these lists are overwhelming!) that still ends up covering everything.
Printables from the Daily Dish Magazine
