Tips to prepare for holiday meals

PERRY, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The holidays are almost here and that means it is time to start thinking about what you’re going to cook. 41NBC’s Amanda Castro caught up with professional organizer Andi Willis to find out how you can prepare for your holiday feast.

Willis says the first thing you need to do is decide what you are going to cook. She suggests going through your cookbooks and recipe box. Then start stocking up on your ingredients.

Willis adds you should get extra paper goods and plastic bags so your guests can leave with leftovers. She suggests if you can, prepare dishes ahead of time and leave them in the freezer. But before you do that, clean out your refrigerator and freezer so you will have plenty of space for food and leftovers.

Willis says now is the time to pull out your platters and holiday dishes. She suggests making a staging area that way you have everything you need when you’re ready to start using them.
