Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner

Let’s all take a minute to be thankful for coupons!  I hope the tricks of waiting until items are on sale and stacking on coupons has made your upcoming holiday meals less stressful and gives you more time to just enjoy this season with your family.

This week, I am hoping for you all to share a traditional Thanksgiving recipe, your family’s favorite dish or what you are bringing to the big dinner this year. We are taking a break from counting points this week and just sharing some recipes that make it Thanksgiving!
