Save Money by Cooking Thanksgiving Yourself

Are you thinking about Thanksgiving yet? Will you be cooking at home this year? Or will you skip the hectic Thanksgiving cooking marathon and let someone else do it?

If you are planning on skipping out on roasting your own Thanksgiving turkey, I'd like to encourage you to reconsider. Roasting your own Thanksgiving turkey will save you a TON of money this winter if you do what I do.

Start by buying a large turkey when they go on sale. Look at the prices and find the turkeys with the lowest price pound. Now find the largest turkey in that range and bring it home.

Then roast the turkey and follow the steps in my newest eHow article:

How to Save Money Making 20 Meals with Your Thanksgiving Turkey

Thanksgiving is the only time of the year that you can make 20 meals out of $7 worth of meat. The closest you can come is about 6 meals for that price. It's worth doing!

We are not doing Thanksgiving at my house, but I totally plan on getting a turkey, best prices of the year, and roasting it. Saving the leftovers and making soup and other dishes will go a long way.
