The Cost Of Thanksgiving Dinner In 2016 Is More Affordable Than You Think!
Each year the American Farm Bureau Federation comes out with their annual cost of Thanksgiving dinner for 10 people. This year's total? Just under $50! Is it just me or does that seem cheap? Just five dollars per person for a full Thanksgiving dinner?
Now if you're wondering what the $50 has to cover, here is the list. A 16-pound turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, rolls, peas, cranberries, carrots and celery, pumpkin pie, coffee, and milk. This year's total cost is less than 2015, down 1%.
The most expensive item is obviously the bird. A 16-pound turkey will cost your around $24 depending on where you buy it. But everything else you need is very affordable. So now there should be no excuse to have the whole family over this Thanksgiving!
