We’re interrupting our regularly scheduled holiday gift guide series to bring you a reminder of all things frugal: the Festival of Frugality!
And there’s no better time to focus on frugality than just before your spending kicks into high gear with the holiday season upon us. (Don’t worry, we’ll be back tomorrow to continue the gift guide series.) And now:
Festival of Frugality: Thanksgiving Grocery Price Edition
In the spirit of Kate’s Editors pick, 8 Ways to Save Money on Thanksgiving Dinner from Budgeting in the Fun Stuff, the theme of this week’s Festival of Frugality is Thanksgiving grocery prices. Rock bottom Thanksgiving grocery prices.
Since I’m carefully tracking prices in my once a month shopping/cooking adventure, I thought it would be fun to share the lowest prices I bought our Thanksgiving groceries for this year. Check out the prices throughout the festival of frugal articles and let me know if you’re finding something lower!
