and from 4 weeks to 3 weeks to go I try to
~ clean the fridge and pantry out and use up as much as I can so there is room once I make my grocery list.
~Decide on what recipes I will be making
~Make grocery list. Perishables and non perishables
~Start watching for the stuff to be on sale
~Make sure we have enough dishes, and none are broken or chipped
~Deep clean the main rooms we would be using (Kitchen, Family Room, Guest Bath and the Front Porch)
