OCD Girl Scout

Ok, so I'm a little OCD.
I like to call it "being prepared",
I was once a Girl Scout, ya know!
(We order a pre-cooked, smoked Turkey, so we must buy broth.)

I love the fact that many stores are going to be closed on Thanksgiving.  I never (and have never) shopped on Thanksgiving, or the day after, for that matter.  Not judging anyone, just saying that I  like the idea of people getting to spend their holiday time as they want.  However, it seems that every year there is something that I must send Mister to the store for early on Thanksgiving Day - something I've forgotten.  I hate it but I do it.  This year I'm trying to label things to avoid this holiday blunder.

What about you?
Is there something that usually requires a last minute run to the store?  If so, what?  (You're among friends, so you can tell us.)  

To answer my own question - extra ICE is one of the common things I forget.

I always forget at least one item and have to keep an ongoing list. He doesn't mind running to the store for me, but usually I don't discover it until I'm in the middle of the recipe! Then I'm on Google trying to find a substitute! Happy Thanksgiving to you! I'm glad you have all your ducks in a row this time! Or, at least, your broths!

Nope, I go with that if I forgot it then we really don't need it and I just enjoy the day. No stress is best.

Ha ha you're almost as anal as I am - I love it!!

My sister hosts Thanksgiving and many times she would ask me to pick up cranberry sauce on my way....it was a mental block with her because most of her family doesn't care for it!

I have made my own for the past few years (recipe is on my blog) so it's no longer an issue - we always have plenty!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family -
