5 Things We Can All Be Thankful For This Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!  Before digging into your turkey, Tofurky, duck, or whatever holiday dinner you wil be enjoying, take a minute to remember what you have to be thankful for this year.  We’re doing the same!  In case you need some inspiration, here are a few things we can all be thankful for today:

1. Time with family & friends (and pets!).  Life is so busy, there is rarely a time where nearly everyone has a few days off work, school and other responsibilities.  The holidays are always crazy, but remember what is really important — spending time with those you love!

2. Sharing good food with loved ones.  Whether you cook a traditional turkey, a vegetarian feast, or a cultural meal, cherish this opportunity to take a break from rushed take-out or boxed meals.  Get the whole family involved with the prep work, and invite guests to bring a dish to share to ease some of your cooking responsibility.

3. The ability to help others.  Each Thanksgiving, many spend all or part of the day serving at a local soup kitchen or food drive.  If you missed out this holiday, be sure to check for upcoming opportunities to volunteer during Christmas and Hanukkah.
4. Helpful everyday technology.  Although technology can be a distraction, it is also a blessing.  Imagine not being able to connect with others through phone and email, or discovering news, events and other resources online.  As we developed and released our Unclipt app this year, we realized just how important technology is for organizing our lives!  Consider Unclipt our gift to you — it’s available for free in iTunes!

5. Sales and deals that make it possible to give the gifts our loved ones want and need (especially from local retailers!).  To get the most out of your holiday shopping this weekend, make sure to check out our post on Black Friday deals, and follow the feed on Unclipt!  Look out for tomorrow’s post on how to shop Cyber Monday deals.
