Three Easy Ways to Save on Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving in only one day away! This national holiday is all about spending quality time with family and friends, and being grateful for the blessings in your life. If you are like most people, this year you may not be able to congregate in large groups. If you’re completely alone and you want to celebrate the holiday with others, there are meetup groups hosting virtual dinners together.

However, even with the restrictions, we can still have a good holiday and find ways to make our money go further. If you want to save on Thanksgiving, here are three easy tips to lighten the bill.

1. Serve Seasonal Produce. If you serve vegetable side dishes that are in season, you may be able to pick up the produce at your local farmers’ market. This is usually less expensive, fresher, and healthier for you and your guests, and it supports local farmers.

2. Buy store brands instead of name brands. In many cases, name brand food products are almost twice as much as store brand. For example, a box of Stove Top Stuffing costs $1.68 compared to $0.82 for Great Value Stuffing. A can of Del Monte green beans is $1 compared to a can of Great Value green beans at $0.50. Take advantage of store brands when possible.

3. Stock up for next year. According to Reader’s Digest, the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas are filled with discounts on items like frozen dinner rolls, butter, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and other holiday treats. You can use this opportunity to stock up on Thanksgiving for next year. You can also use this to prepare for Christmas dinner depending on what you want on your menu.

I wish you and your family a happy Thanksgiving. Have a great holiday, and I’ll talk to you again very soon!
