The economy is still bad, so with the holidays approaching we don't want the added stress of how to pay for everything. Luckily Walmart is at it again with lowering prices. This holiday season, Walmart is reducing prices on key holiday meal items to help make holiday meals a little more affordable.
Plus they have recently teamed up with some of Food Networks stars Melissa D’Arabian from Ten Dollar Dinners and Aaron Sanchez of Chefs vs. City to create tasty twists on traditional holiday dishes.
A turkey dinner for eight as low as $20
According to a survey by the American Farm Bureau Federation, last year’s average cost of a turkey was roughly $1.19 per pound. Select Grade A turkeys are available now for 40 cents per pound at Walmart.* These gobblers are part of Walmart’s $20 Thanksgiving menu guaranteeing family favorites will be on the dinner table this holiday season. Walmart’s $20 Thanksgiving feast includes:
- One 12-pound Grade A turkey*
- Three 11 to 15.5-ounce cans Green Giant vegetables
- Two 14-ounce cans Ocean Spray cranberry sauce
- Three 6-ounce boxes of Stove Top stuffing
- One 5-pound bag of red potatoes
- One 12-count package of Sara Lee dinner rolls
- One 22-ounce pumpkin roll cake
I stopped by Walmart today and they did have some pretty great prices. I wasn't there long because I worked all day, but I noticed stuffing was only .74 a box (regular price $3+) I definately can see creating an entire holiday meal with very little money.
We usually have turkey, mashed potatoes, roast potatoes, salad, some veggies and of course dessert. Still haven't fully figured out the dinner menu yet this year. What types of dishes are you having this thanksgiving? Is there something you have every single year? Roast potatoes is my look forward to thing each Thanksgiving and Christmas!
