Thanksgiving can weigh heavy on your stress levels as well as your wallet. It’s hard to focus on getting your chic table decor just right when you’re low on holiday funds. But you can cut your turkey day spending almost in half!
Aldi has a reputation for cheap, quality food, and they’re firm believers that Thanksgiving shouldn’t be giving your savings account a workout.
It’s $16 Less Than the National Average
The cost of turkey, dinner rolls, savory sides and dessert can add up quick when you’re on a budget. According to a study conducted by the American Farm Bureau, a Thanksgiving meal large enough to feed 10 costs around $50 on average. That’s a lot of dough for less than a dozen rolls.
But with Aldi Thanksgiving staples, however, your smorgasbord is only $32.02.
The low price tag seems wild considering how much really goes into a successful Thanksgiving dinner. The American Farm Bureau asked shoppers to fill their carts with a 16-pound turkey, cubed bread stuffing (14 ounces), sweet potatoes (3 pound bag), rolls (12 count), green peas (1 pound bag), fresh cranberries (12 ounce bag), a vegetable tray (with carrots and celery), pumpkin pie mix (30 ounce can), 9-inch pie shells, whipping cream (1/2 pint) and whole milk (1 gallon).
Once the shopping was done, receipts were compared, and Aldi was crowned most cost-effective when it comes to doling out servings on Thanksgiving.
