Walk around just about any department store or super center store and you’d think it was time for Christmas already. I actually bought battery operated Christmas lights to light up our Halloween pumpkins this year! While I like to start my Christmas shopping early, you won’t find any Christmas decorations up at my house until after Thanksgiving. After all, Thanksgiving is in November, when we all need to take a few steps back and reflect on what we’re thankful for this year.
Here are a few budget friendly Thanksgiving traditions you may want to think about trying out this year.
November Stock up SalesNovember is the month to start stocking up on all the fixings for you holiday get together. I’ve already seen the prices of soups, green beans, stuffing, and baking goods start to drop at places like Walmart and Target. I would expect to see a lot of sales on these items at other supermarkets in coming weeks. This November you’ll also want to stock up on hot beverages like coffee, tea, and hot cocoa. You’ll want those items on hand as the temperatures drop this winter.
So this year take time to celebrate Thanksgiving with your friends and family before you decorate that Christmas tree and turn on the holiday music. Also, don’t forget to get stocked up on this month’s lowest priced items!
