Cost of Thanksgiving Dinner
This weekend, a lot of people will be out in search of their turkeys as well as everything else that goes into a Thanksgiving dinner. I think everybody has the staples of turkey, mashed potatoes with gravy, and, stuffing. Then after that, it becomes a matter of preference.
I have good news for you. According to the Farm Bureau, your Thanksgiving dinner will cost you less this year then it did last year. In fact, it's at the lowest price it has been in five years. It's not that much less, but any little bit helps, right? The Farm Bureau estimates that a complete dinner should cost you $49 this year. That includes; a 16-pound turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, peas, cranberries, pumpkin pie, drinks and more. Now that does not include beer or wine which will jack up that price significantly, especially if you drink like we do at my house on Thanksgiving.
You can check out the Farm Bureau website for more information on this.
