Don't "starve" your budget this Thanksgiving with 5 ways to save on your Thanksgiving dinner.

While the price of food hasn’t been escalating like it was last year, a trip to the grocery store can still be expensive. Add a big dinner like thanksgiving and say goodbye to that budget, or do you have to?

Actually, a recipe for saving on dinner is simple, and serves everyone. It’s a mixture of common sense and a little research.

First, hit the computer and grab a pen and paper. As soon as you have a head-count and know what you’re serving, go online to a recipe site like Recipes.com. The site helps you figure out just how much you’ll need.

Coupon search engines like the one here at Money Talks News, can help you find the best deals at stores nearby. Don’t forget the paperboy or papergirl! Check out the coupons in your local newspaper as well. Often times, a special section is created just for this holiday.

For the star of the thanksgiving dinner, go with frozen or fresh. Money Talks News did a little checking and found you can save 30% to 40%. Remember it takes 3-5 days to thaw that bird.

Don’t be a whiner when it comes to wine. Thumb your nose at high priced bottles of wine and head for the box section; it’s half priced. Besides, once you pour it into a nice decanter, who’s going to know? Before you shop, check the price-matching policy at your favorite store. If your store matches advertised deals, you’ll be able to do all your shopping in one place and not miss out.
