Tips to Save Money on Your Thanksgiving Day Dinner Menu

Tips to Save Money on Your Thanksgiving Dinner Menu

What is on your Thanksgiving menu? Do you have it planned yet? I don’t know about you, but for the last week I have been stressing about what I need to buy, where I need to buy it from, am I going to be ready, will I be organized enough so that I can actually enjoy Thanksgiving with my family? Because that is what Thanksgiving is all about – celebrating the things we are THANKFUL for. It isn’t about stressing out about the meal!

Well, one thing I am thankful for this season is the fact that I downloaded the Flipp app. I told you guys about it awhile back, it’s a FREE app that puts all the sales circulars right on your phone. Because let’s be honest, are you ever ANYWHERE without your phone? So, when I have a moment, I open the Flipp app and I can check out all the sales at my favorite stores. Right now, it’s the grocery stores.

I love Thanksgiving dinner and all the food, but I have no desire to spend a small fortune on it. So how does Flipp help me?

Simple, I open the app, search the things I need.

And bam! Looks like there’s a fabulous deal at Winn Dixie right now. I can get a whole meal deal, or grab a frozen one. That took me about 3 seconds to find 🙂 I also learned from the ad that if a competitor has a better price Winn Dixie will match it.

Now that I know that I will be headed up to Winn Dixie to grab my turkey I browsed the whole ad. Since I will be there anyway, I wanted to see what else I could score at a good price.

I was able to “clip” the deals I wanted, save them to my phone and have a nice list made in under 10 minutes. All from my phone. No need to search for the Winn Dixie ad or go online. No need for me to looks for a bunch of different ads from last Sunday’s newspaper (where is that anyway?!).

  7. I love your tips. I have to plan carefully and assign dishes for others to bring as well. I normally have 21 for Thanksgiving and the, n any police officers that are working in the area.
