The Chew: Average Thanksgiving Cost
Tommy the Turkey is back on this Thrifty Thanksgiving episode. He had a question from a viewer who asked how expensive it was going to be for her to have Thanksgiving dinner at her house.
A census of the cost of Thanksgiving dinner in 2011, according to The Chew, found people spend an average of $49.20 on Thanksgiving for 10 people. Which is pretty good considering you are spending less than $5 per person. Plus if you spend a little extra you could have days worth of left overs.
Daphne Oz said she loves the leftovers after Thanksgiving. And she is even making her favorite after Thanksgiving dish, her turkey sweet potato hash recipe.
The American Farm Bureau also releases statistics on the cost of each item each year, which can help you plan what the meal is going to cost.
