Thanksgiving on a Budget

Posted on

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, you may be looking to cut some corners so this feast fits in your budget. Everything from table settings to turkeys can be made cheaper, without sacrificing beauty or taste.

When decorating for Thanksgiving dinner, think about what you can reuse or upcycle. If you’re looking for a centerpiece for your table, check out Pinterest for something you can make yourself. By adding your creative flair, you’ll save money on pre-made decorations.

Food wise, you can easily save some pennies by purchasing a basic turkey from the supermarket. Look out for sales and store your bird in the freezer until the night before Thanksgiving. For sides, create everything from scratch with items you find on sale. Around this time of year, there will be great deals on holiday-specific foods – just make sure you get to the store before they’re all sold out!

Lastly, for your sanity’s sake, don’t leave your Thanksgiving groceries until the last minute. The stores are full of people, and not full of all the things you need. To avoid making extra trips and having to pay extra money, try to get everything organized this weekend.
