Thanksgiving dinner for less

Early's Cajun Supermarket in Scott Early's Cajun Supermarket in Scott

Do you think you can buy a thanksgiving dinner for 10 people for $49.04? According to a shopping survey it's possible.

The shopping survey was conducted by the American Farm Bureau Federation. The survey includes the classic items for the average thanksgiving dinner. The spending cap is $49.04.

"Get the turkey, the green peas," adds Hebert. Karen Hebert is the owner of Early's Cajun Supermarket in Scott. She explains the key to bargain shopping is price comparison. The survey gave us a guide to follow. Fresh cranberries is one of the listed food items. "$2.42 is what they paid on this study. We got it for $2.49."

The big expense is the turkey. The survey calls for us to get a 16 pound turkey. The closest we got was15.4 pounds for about $18.35. Our grand total for the entire dinner is $40.43.
