With Thanksgiving less then 2 weeks away. I started to think how a cheapskate like me would do Thanksgiving on the cheap of course. First I looked in the freezer to see what I had so that I would not spend any extra money. I decided that I wanted a ham which I did not have in the freezer. So I shopped and found ham the cheapest price was $19. Not happening to expensive for a cheapskate like me. I lucked up and found a package of 4 turkey legs for $5 grabbed it. My sides are simple a baked potato's which I purchase a 5lb bag for 99 cents. A can of cranberry sauce which I already have in the closet, can of biscuits for 1.35. I remember a can of biscuits use to be 89 cents what happen? I need my salad so I will be purchasing that a day before. I hope lettuce is still not $1.99 if it is I will skip it I need it to be 99 cents or less. Hoping Shoprite will still have their package of tomato's for 99 cents with their cucumbers 3 for $2.
My desert was going to be banana pudding but when I saw t Nilla Wafer cookies that you need to make a banana pudding cost $3.95 a box I said forget it. By the time I get 2 boxes of cookies, 2 boxes of vanilla pudding and some banana's my dessert would cost me $10.30 alone. I will settle for 2 for $5 Breyers ice-cream and a cheap box of little Debbie's cakes at $1.79 My Thanksgiving dinner for 2 people should cost me no more then $25-30 at most. Thank god we can eat on our Thanksgiving meal it for 2 days.
I try and look for sales at my supermarket but to tell you the truth living in high a** New York makes it challenging. I am envious when I read about people living other places that have way cheaper food prices then I do.
Please don't say use coupons again that's a challenge because I don't get the same coupons you might living in another state.
Oh well after everything is said the bottom line is that I am grateful to even have a meal let alone a cheap one. So how much is it costing you this Thanksgiving?
Have a Great Cheap Cheetah Day & Save that $$$$
