thanksgiving buy price list

Thanksgiving is a huge day for food, which means it can be rough on the grocery budget. Here is a list of the best prices you’ll find on things you need for Thanksgiving. If you stock-up when things are the cheapest, you’ll find Thanksgiving can fit nicely in your budget.

Note: We have not seen sales on cranberries and sweet potatoes yet, so you may want to hold off on grabbing those items. There will also be regional differences in prices, so some things may be more in your area. Keep in mind that some stores (like Bi-Lo and Food Lion), will price match turkey prices.
