Have a Plan to Save Money on Thanksgiving (Frugal Friday)
Posted By Jessica Fisher On November 1, 2012 @ 8:04 pm In Budget Living,Frugal Friday | 10 Comments
Thanksgiving is a mere three weeks away. It can be a costly meal to serve. But, if you plan now, you can save money.
If you’re hosting Thanksgiving this year, then it’s time to start thinking about what you’ll serve and give some thought as well to budgetary constraints. I remember the first year I shopped and cooked the meal for my family. It cost somewhere between $100 and $200! Granted, I did all my shopping in one day and bought whatever I wanted since my dad was paying. But, still…. That’s a little excessive.
And it didn’t account for decorations and serving ware that I just “had to” purchase.
In order to avoid some costly bills in a few weeks, take steps now. Plan how you will host Thanksgiving on a budget.
By determining this now, you benefit in HUGE ways.
Having a plan to save money at Thanksgiving will bless you and your family and give you even more to be thankful for.
Time to swap ideas and inspiration for saving money and getting good values.
