Nov. 30―Dec. 6: Shop for groceries
Stock up now on nonperishable and freezable items so you'll have them on hand when it's time to start baking and cooking.
TIP: If you're throwing a holiday party for a crowd, save money by going potluck. Choose a holiday menu at myrecipes.com and ask family and friends to each prepare one dish. You'll end up with a complete meal of complementary foods.
