Budget Tips for Cooking Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving 2018 is upon us! Who doesn't love a good, old-fashioned, home-cooked Thanksgiving meal with friends and family? You can make unforgettable memories with your loved ones year after year. While this can be such a great holiday, expenses can start to add up after a while. Cooking a huge dinner for several people can be expensive. Your community bank at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to give you a few budget tips for cooking Thanksgiving dinner. To open a savings account at the Lake of the Ozarks and start building your Thanksgiving savings now, ask First Bank of the Lake about the Free Kasasa Saver.

Budget Tips for Cooking Thanksgiving Dinner

Consider hosting a potluck this year.
Potlucks are a great way to cut down on costs around the holidays. Not only does it save you from purchasing more ingredients to make more dishes but it also allows everyone to contribute. Some people actually like to cook and you could be starting an awesome tradition in your family by doing this.

Serve turkey breast instead of an entire turkey.
Take a look at how many people are planning to attend your Thanksgiving dinner party. Do you really think that the number of people can finish a whole turkey? If your answer is no, then bypass roasting an entire turkey and only prepare turkey breast. It can be cheaper and less wasteful.

Serve the basic appetizers.
While it can be tempting to make a bunch of appetizers, keep it simple and set out things like chips and dip or a veggie tray. These are typically affordable items and your party is about to pig out on an entire dinner. There is no need to get full on a bunch of appetizers.

Don't overdo it on the pie.
Yes, pie is delicious, but do you really need so many? Make enough for the number of people you have attending, but you don't need to make several. Save money and make just the right amount.
