It is hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is just two weeks away! Thanksgiving dinner can become a costly meal. It is best to decide how much you can afford to spend and create your budget accordingly. Budgeting is not meant to limit your choices, but rather to provide boundaries for your decision making.
What needs to be included in your Thanksgiving budget?
- Entertainment or Activities
Create a menu, and then write your grocery list from the planned courses- and stick to the list! Keep your eyes open for sales, cut coupons and stick to store brands. Another tip is to not overload the table with multiple dishes that no one will eat; go with quality over quantity. By planning and budgeting, you can have an enjoyable holiday without breaking the bank.
