It Should Cost You Less Than $50 to Serve a Full Thanksgiving Dinner This Year?
The American Farm Bureau Federation just put out its annual study on how much it should cost to serve Thanksgiving dinner. And man, I wish I knew what stores THEY do their shopping at. Also, they don’t include alcohol in this! Kinda necessary for hanging out with your family, right?!
According to the study, it should only cost you $48.91 to serve 10 people at Thanksgiving. That’s up a whopping one cent from last year.
So what can you buy for that money? Their dinner includes a 16-pound turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, rolls with butter, peas, cranberries, a veggie tray, pumpkin pie with whipped cream, milk, and coffee.
And if you want to add ham, russet potatoes, and green beans to your dinner, that adds another $13.41 to the overall cost, taking your dinner up to $62.32.
