Thanksgiving dinner can get expensive, so try these tips to save money on preparing your feast this year!
- Plan ahead and make only one trip to the grocery. Make a list of all ingredients you will need and make one trip to your local grocery store. Many stores offer discounts for spending a certain amount at once. Take advantage of these deals and don’t wait until the last minute! Also check for coupons.
- Have everyone bring a dish. My family does a pot-luck and has everyone bring a portion of the meal. That way one person alone is not bearing all the financial burden of feeding the whole family!
- Take advantage of leftovers. Don’t let all the food go to waste! Instead, have leftovers for a few days after Thanksgiving Day. Send guests home with leftovers as well. Have someone eat the remainder of the meal you prepared rather than letting it go to waste!
