Thanksgiving has always been a favorite holiday for me.

This should come as no surprise if you've been around Spaceships and Laser Beams for very long.

I'm a total foodie, so naturally a holiday that revolves around an entire day of eating is a holiday made for me. ;)

Beyond the food, I'm also a big believer in the idea that "attitude is everything."

I believe we have the power to create a better life by having a grateful attitude and approaching each day with a posture of thankfulness.

That said, life has been really busy lately. I'm doing everything I can to simplify and make things easier on myself.

One way I'm taking it easy on myself is by heading to Family Dollar as I prepare for my Thanksgiving hosting duties.


Family Dollar has everything I need in one simple stop: super cute decor plus ingredients for our must-make recipes.

They offer a great assortment of items for all that I need to prepare. I can snag my household cleaners to use as I get ready for guests, plus name brand foods and of course home decor. Everything is at great everyday low prices -- many items are a $1 or less and most items are below $10.

I can save even more thanks to their Smart Coupons. Relevant offers are tailored to me based on my shopping history.

I "clip" the coupons to my account, which eliminates the need to print or cut paper coupons.

It's also easy to sign up online and create an account or by utilizing their app.

Just provide your phone number, name and email address and then create a password to get started.

Family Dollar also has a new SmartSpins app. It's a game that rewards you for shopping and saving!

Every time you shop earn a spin in the app game that will appear as a push notification or message in your app inbox. A banner will also appear in the app that shows your available number of spins after they are earned. Don’t forget to update your app to the most current version and save on your favorite items. You can earn rewards every time you shop.

While shopping this week, I picked up the ingredients I would need for my corn pudding recipe, plus some great decor to decorate my table.

It was easy to pick up everything I need and I love the great selection of cute items they offer.

It's simple to put together a memorable tablescape with such cute decor options. They have a great variety for any taste.

I grabbed both serving dishes plus plates for my table. I love the cute owls!

They've got a wide assortment of grocery deals as well. I was able to pick up everything I need for my delicious corn pudding recipe -- it's a family favorite for us. I'm confident your gang will love it, too!
