Thanksgiving Leftover Take Homes

Hailey's Helpful Hints

I can't tell you how much I love this idea which is why I wanted to highlight in this years Thanksgiving post.  When I entertain, it's always my plan to make enough to send leftovers home with my guests for the next day.  I generally use  plastic containers with lids that come in all different sizes.  Until now that is.  Head to your local craft store and stock up on kraft paper takeout boxes, write on labels and markers.  Our local craft store, michaels has a value pack of 10 boxes. After dinner, place them near the food and invite everyone to make up a take home container.  Post a small sign reminding your guests to mark their package with their name.
