Thanksgiving is here, complete with delicious dishes and family reunions.  While we leave the cooking to you these MassChallenge Alum have come up with some great ways to make your family gathering run more smoothly.

Need to clear out the spare bedroom to make room for the in-laws?  Try Fetch Storage, Just pack your extra stuff into their reusable boxes, and they will store and redeliver it on command.
 
In coming relatives don’t want to deal with traffic during the busiest travel weekend of the year?  Wanderu is the Kayak of ground transportation; search, plan and book; no TSA pat down necessary! 
 
Did we mention fashion?  With self-esteem at risk everyone wants to look his or her best for the family critic!  The ladies can make a personal statement with a fully customized look from Bow & Drape’s online shop.  
 
 
LookFlix can reduce time spent at the mall by allowing shoppers to mix and match items from all their favorite stores in one online platform.  
 
Ministry of Supply is supplying heat regulating dress shirts so the men will stay cool under pressure.
 
 
Don’t know which wine to serve with turkey? Try Drync, the only mobile wine application that scours wine listings to identify the exact wine you are drinking, as well provide expert ratings, reviews, and recommendations based on your preferences.
 
 
Want to give back this season?  Lovin’ Spoonfuls organizes food rescue and redistribution helping to eliminate hunger and food waste. You can help too by donating funds here. 
 
 
Speaking of food waste, have you considered composting your leftovers? Bootstrap Compost is Greater Boston's only year-round residential and commercial food scrap pickup service. No turkey bones please!
 
 
When the holiday is all over Lifeables can collect, filter and organize all of your family’s online content (i.e. photos, videos, posts, and comments) into a single online family storyboard.
 
 
This is just a sampling of what the MassChallenge Alumni have to offer!  If you did not see what you are looking for check out all the Startups at MassChallenge.org to see more great ideas you can be thankful for this year.  
 
 
Happy Thanksgiving!
