How do you deal with the Thanksgiving Mess?

walkoffdinner | Oct 25, 2012 11:27 AM

Each year my husband and I host both our families. We love it with the exception of the leftover mess. How do you deal with it?

Each year I keep a written journal of what worked etc. This last year I vowed not to have as many messes. I always start the day off with a clean kitchen, make as many dishes ahead of time etc. How do you enlist help? There are just some (okay, they are men) who just don't help wtih clean up. Do you assign it along with dishes or just put people on the spot? I vow this year will be less clean up on just me, my husband and one or two others.
