Let’s face it; times are tough for many people this year. If you’re wondering how you’re going to afford the typical Thanksgiving this year, or if you’re just looking for some extra ways to save money, we have some ideas for you.

When you follow these simple tips, it can help you have a great Thanksgiving and fabulous holiday meal without breaking the bank.

• Have a potluck dinner. With potluck, you can provide the turkey for the meal at your house and each guest should bring a side dish. This lowers your cost as well as the costs of anyone else who attends your Thanksgiving event. It also means more people get what they want because the family (or friends) helps build the meal themselves.

• Keep your meal simple. You don’t have to go all out on a glamorous or extravagant meal. Keep it simple and you will keep your costs down as well. This isn’t the year to try something new and luxurious. Stick to simple foods that you know.

• Make things from scratch. Foods made from scratch are generally much more affordable that ready made foods of the same type. You can pay from two to three times as much for a ready made item than you would for the ingredients to make it from scratch.

• Keep your eyes out for a free turkey. That’s right; free turkey. There are many grocery stores that offer specials this time of year and you can get a free turkey when you buy certain products or when you spend a certain amount in the store. If you’re going to be spending that much anyway, why not get the turkey for free? There are also certain agencies that have free turkey programs during the Thanksgiving holiday season.

• Clip coupons. You can shop smart this season by using coupons. Check your local sales papers, online, and on the grocery store shelves for great coupons on the items you want to buy for your Thanksgiving dinner. Some grocery stores also have bulletin boards where they or other customers place coupons for you to use.

These tips can help you have a great holiday meal without spending a great deal of money. Don’t think you have to sacrifice your Thanksgiving meal just because you’re short on funds this year.
