Organize the Thanksgiving potluck with Google Drive

Mandy's using Google to get a handle on Thanksgiving planning:

I created a potluck signup sheet through Google Drive with the menu items detailed and emailed it to everyone. They're able to check off what they're bringing and see others' responses as well. No duplicates, no missing traditional dishes! A bonus...it helps me return any dishes and bowls left behind!

Updated to add: You could also use Dropbox for this purpose.
