Thanksgiving is a busy time for most people, so saving time and money is crucial. Continue reading to learn some last minute Thanksgiving hacks that you will want to practice every year!


No rack? No problem! If you don’t have a roasting pan rack on hand, don’t waste the money and buy a new one (when you’ll probably only use it once per year!) Instead, find some veggies in your refrigerator, like carrots or celery, and simply line the pan with them. This will lift the turkey up just enough to help drain the fat!


Sprinkle a little baking powder for fluffier potatoes. This hack is provided to you by Buzzfeed, and calls for just one pinch of baking powder. The added CO2 in the baking powder will enhance this Thanksgiving staple-dish, and even make your servings larger!

Make a holiday punch, instead of taking individual drink requests. If you try to satisfy everyone’s drink-of-choice you will be crafting drinks all night (and broke!) But there’s a solution – make a holiday punch that everyone can enjoy. Click here for a list of 15 Punches that will be perfect for your Thanksgiving crowd, courtesy of Delish.
