Five Ways to Save Money on Your Thanksgiving Dinner!

We heard last week that Thanksgiving dinner for 10 people should only cost $48.90 this year.  Less than $5 per person, according to the American Farm Bureau’s annual study.

If that sounds unrealistic, here are five tips to help you save a few bucks this year . . .

1.  Don’t get fancy.  Thanksgiving foods only get expensive when you add things like nuts and bacon to make them more “gourmet.”  But most people don’t even want a gourmet Thanksgiving.  They want the classics.  So save money and keep it simple.

2.  You don’t HAVE to make a whole turkey.  If you’re having a smaller dinner with four or five people, you might only need to buy a turkey breast and a couple legs.  Or go with a roast chicken instead of a whole turkey.

3.  Don’t aim for a ton of leftovers.  Scale down and buy just enough food for one dinner, with maybe a little bit left over for the next day.  Fans of leftovers will hate that idea, but it’ll cut down on costs.

4.  Make it a potluck.  Have everyone bring something.  Or if you’re doing dinner, ask them to bring some wine, or make the dessert.

  • 10am - 2pm | I am the resident radio geek here at BOB. I live, breathe, and eat radio. However, when I’m not on the radio you can find me searching for a local hole-in-the-wall pizza joint, walking the streets of downtown at night in search of fun local music to listen to, going to movies, an occasional trip to Wendover, traveling, exploring, or just chilling at home with my little family. I LOVE talking on the phone! Hit me up on our studio line at 877-807-1007, or on your social media site of choice!
