In this segment, I mention a few tips and ideas for saving on your Thanksgiving menu. Here are a few key takeaways:
- Start with a Plan! Make a menu plan and break it out into an ingredients list. Use this list to start to identify deals in store ads.
- Make it a Potluck! Don’t be afraid to take friends and family members up on their offers to bring side dishes or other items. When everyone splits the cost, no one goes broke.
- Prices are competitive right now. Grocery stores are competing hard for your business, so expect prices on Thanksgiving dinner basics to be at some of their lowest.
- Stock up your Pantry and Support Food Banks! Take advantage of low prices on non-perishables by stocking up your pantry for the winter months. Also, this is a good time of year to help support our local food banks.
- Buy spices in Bulk. I mentioned that I paid $0.57 for 20 cinnamon sticks at WinCo. If you are intrigued by this idea, make sure to check out my recipe for homemade mulling spice.
I also spent a fair amount of time discussing the best turkey prices in the Puget Sound for 2015. I’ve been tracking these prices for several years now and have compiled a current list of prices and deals on my Best Turkey Price post. Please check it out! I’ve even included stores like Trader Joe’s, Target, and Costco.
