12349876: I'm paying 12.99 for the Golden Corral Thanksgiving buffet./not really
kmwheel: At Meijer, you spend $20 on anything (easy) and get $10 off a hen or $17 off a tom. We got two baskets and got two 12 lb. turkeys for $5ish each...and I'm not even hosting Thanksgiving this year. I just love turkey, and it's darn cheap to make for a big family. Aldi has just about anything else you could need for a traditional meal. Now buying a standing rib roast, that will kill you!
jaylectricity: I, too, paid 59 cents a pound for our turkey.

Smeggy Smurf: I got my turkey for free because I spent a couple hundred on other groceries at WinCo Foods.
dahmers love zombie: Where the hell do they go to get that list? 7/11? Turkey at my local store is 59 cents a pound. $11.80 for 20 lbs.. Right there we've lopped off over ten bucks. Being that the majority of the other things went down in price, I'd say that if you shop wisely, you could see a decrease of at least 15% compared to the prices last year, and maybe significantly more than that. I guess that farks up their narrative of "OMG EVERYTHING GETS MORE EXPENSIVE EVERY YEAR!"
max_pooper: jaylectricity: I, too, paid 59 cents a pound for our turkey.I'm not hosting Thanksgiving but I couldn't pass up $.59/lb at my local grocery store. With the required aromatics and herbs the total cost for my 13 pounder is around $20. It;ll put a couple months worth of delicious sandwich material in my freezer, not to mention plenty of delicious stock.

Shaggy0717: where's the stuffing in this list? no stuffing, no thanksgiving...or any giving for that matter.
WhippingBoy: Beer: $150.00Bourbon: $96.00Am I missing anything?
Bit'O'Gristle: I hunt our turkey, so it's the price of gas to get to the woods, and one shotgun shell. Prolly works out to about 4 dollars. Make our own stuffing, so thats cheaper than buying premade, and our own pies.

Make our own stuffing, so thats cheaper than buying premade, and our own pies.Your profile says you live in Illinois. IDNR's website indicates that a resident hunting license is $12.50 and resident fall shotgun turkey permit is $15.00 (unless you are hunting your own property, then it is free), so wouldn't that put the price of your turkey at about $31.50?
