You\'ve also forgotten to send invitations to so and so and a few others and the party is only a few days away. Suddenly you find yourself scrambling back to all the same stores trying to find the items you missed the first time around. Then out of nowhere the night of the party arrives and you realize you don\'t have enough food for all the invited guests. Then the worst possible thing happens, you hear a knock at the front door. It\'s as if a new and frightening nightmare has blossomed out of thin air. You feel the shakes coming on and your stress level is reaching new and incredible heights. I could go even further, but I think you get the idea. If only you had begun your planning by keeping track of all that you need, every purchased item and menu dishes prepared. If only you had made a party planning checklist none of the awful party mistakes listed above would have happened. Now that I\'ve gotten the point across about how important a checklist is I will now inform you about what it needs in order to make it work.
You\'re about to start planning a party, but don\'t know where to start. You run to the grocery store, looking at this and that, deciding on a few things you may need, knowing the whole time you\'ve forgotten something. Now it\'s time to head over to the local department store for some decorations. You follow the same unguided principles you went through at the grocery store. Then once again you missed a few things at the liquor store.
