Have a Plan – Having both a Thanksgiving meal plan and budget will keep you from over-spending and over-stressing. Plan early so you don’t make regretful last minute decisions later that could cost you big. Pay close attention to the weekly sales and coupons early.

Clip those Coupons! – After you put together a budget and meal plan you’ll want to clip coupons to save big on all those thanksgiving essentials. Check your grocery store circulars to see what Thanksgiving food items are on sale or buy one get one free.
