Today is my youngest daughter’s 4th birthday so plans are in full swing for her party this weekend. However, I’m already planning ahead for Thanksgiving! A few years ago, we decided to eliminate our Thanksgiving weekend travel in favor of hosting our own dinner since we visit so much family in December. (Besides, I like to have home field advantage for Black Friday!) As a result of our food allergies, I prepare the full feast myself. I have lots of ideas for keeping it simple and inexpensive, plus I’m counting on all of you to add your own tips!
As with any meal, one of the easiest ways to save is to pick up items you need as they are on sale. Plan your menu, check your pantry and create a grocery list to carry with you throughout the month. There are a lot of great coupons out already that will help with your Thanksgiving feast. Nestle put out several coupons in yesterday’s coupon inserts as well as printable coupons on their site. Coupons for Rhodes dinner rolls or Argo baking powder or corn starch could also be useful. You’ll definitely want to check outthese printable coupons to stock up on things like McCormick’s spices, Pillsbury pie crust and more. Be sure to search our coupon database for additional matches on the ingredients you’ll need.
