Need a Thanksgiving shopping list printable? How about a Thanksgiving menu planner? I have a set of 5 free Thanksgiving planning printables to make your Thanksgiving prep easier this year.
Planning a Thanksgiving dinner can be stressful – even if you have others helping to make some of the menu items. It’s such a big meal that it can take a lot of prep work.
You want to make sure that you give yourself enough time to prepare for the day. You don’t want to have to run a last-minute trip to the store because you forgot something. Grocery shopping the day before Thanksgiving is never fun. The grocery store is always a total madhouse the day and night before Thanksgiving.
So to prepare for Thanksgiving day, you’ll want to meal plan, create a to-do list, and of course, creating a grocery shopping list. Using this set of free Thanksgiving planner printables is a great way to prepare for the big day.
The first thing I do when creating a plan for the biggest meal of the year is to create a menu. I’ve included 2 options for menu planning. One option is if you are creating the entire Thanksgiving meal yourself.
The second option is if you are having other people assist in making the meal. When others are helping, it’s even more important to plan out your entire menu. You don’t want a Grandma to miss out on eating her favorite green bean casserole.
Next, I create a figure out what grocery items I will need to make whatever menu items I am creating. Don’t worry, I have included a free printable grocery list, too. If you are making the entire meal, it’s going to be a pretty long list so you may need to print 2 copies of the grocery shopping list.
If you’re headed to the store, the list makes it easy to shop and make sure you haven’t forgotten anything. If you’re ordering from an online marketplace or grocery store service, make sure to have your list close by when you are making your order.
Lastly, I create a Thanksgiving to do list. Thankfully, I have included 2 different to do lists inside of this free printables set.
There is always so much to do during the holiday season. So you’ll want to print the to do list printables early – it makes it so much easier to have a handy checklist to follow when preparing for Thanksgiving.
If it’s your first time hosting a Thanksgiving, you’ll want to start early. It’s a good rule of thumb to start preparing for Thanksgiving at least two weeks before the event. It’s such a stressful time of year and waiting until the week of Thanksgiving is not a great time to start planning.
Using printable lists is one of my favorite ways to feel the most prepared for the Thanksgiving holiday. If you give yourself plenty of time to prepare, with the help of these lists, you’re sure to have a happy Thanksgiving!
What is included in the Free Thanksgiving Printable Set?
- 1 Thanksgiving shopping list printable

- 2 Thanksgiving meal plan printables
Thanksgiving Shopping List Template
Here is what the shopping list printable looks like. Don’t forget to add your most important tools you may need, too, like sheet pans, roasting pan, paper products, etc.
Thanksgiving To Do Lists
I have two to do free printable Thanksgiving checklists for you in this set. One is a simpler check list format. The second is more of a table where you have a column to check off whether or not the task has been completed.
Thanksgiving Meal Planning Printables
Pick one of the two meal planning printables based on whether or not you are making all of the food or having others help. Making a menu sometimes seems silly for a meal like Thanksgiving where you tend to do the same menu each year.
But in reality, it’s super important to list out your entire menu. The last thing you’d want to do is forget to assign someone the pumpkin pie or pecan pie and have it missing from your dinner table.
What File Formats are Included?
I have included both pdf file format and transparent PNG file formats. I wanted to create a transparent PNG format for my digital planners that would like to paste the image into their planners.
Or, they can import the PDF into their planning program as well. Whichever works best for your digital planning method.
What Size Planner Printables are Included?
You’re getting both letter size printables and Classic Happy Planner size printables. You can print these to put into a planner or just print them to use on their own.
