Your Thanksgiving feast doesn’t have to break the bank to be delicious.
This year, to help us reach our monthly financial goals, I decided to keep our Thanksgiving meal simple. I asked each of our family members which traditional Thanksgiving food is most important to them, and then strategized ways to make everyone (and our budget) happy.
Obviously, I haven’t yet prepared the meal, but here’s what we’ll be having:
- Turkey breast: $3.49
- Peas: $0.89
- Corn: $0.49
- Mac & Cheese: $0.49
- Sweet potatoes: $0.07
- Stuffing: $0.69
- Corn muffins: $0.47
- Pumpkin pie (homemade): $1
- Butter: $0.80
- Eggs: $0.50
- Milk: $0.20
In all, the meal will cost us less than $10 for 3 adults and 1 child. I’d say that’s a win!
Here’s how you can do it, too:
1. Simplify the meal.
Ask your family members what’s one item they each really want, and feel free to let go or downsize those foods that are never a big hit anyway.
My husband wanted stuffing. I wanted corn muffins. Our daughter wanted mac & cheese, and my father-in-law wanted something sweet. I felt like we HAD to have turkey, but we’re not really a fan of the big bird, so the little turkey breast tenderloin fit the bill without hitting our wallet.
We also simplified the sides. Since we’re loading up on carbs, I added some veggies to make our meal healthier but opted out of the typical casseroles.
2. Shop sales at discount stores.
I bought most of my ingredients at Aldi, but I also scored cheap produce at a local discount store that offers incredible deals (like two 10-pound bags of sweet potatoes for $1.69).
I also try to shop sales whenever I can, especially if they’re cutting already-low prices. I bought the turkey tenderloin when it was on sale a few weeks ago and stuck it in the freezer for the future. I also got the butter on sale awhile back and keep a stash in the freezer. By buying sales in bulk year-round, I can stock up and save on staple pantry items.
3. Cook what you can from scratch.
Most pumpkin pies cost around $5 in grocery stores. By making it at home, I’ll be saving 80%. I’m using a small pie pumpkin a friend gifted me for fall décor, a $0.65 can of evaporated milk, and a homemade crust that will cost a fraction of what ready-made crusts cost in-store.
Cooking from scratch means I can afford more variety because I’m paying less for raw ingredients.
At the end of the day, it’s not the Thanksgiving meal that matters but rather a thankful heart. Whether you have a table overflowing with the richest foods or a simple meal shared with those you love, the important thing is to come together with gratefulness and express our appreciation for each other.
