  • 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!"
  • I, too, paid 59 cents a pound for our turkey.
  • So, about the same as the rise in inflation.

    QUICK! SOMEONE CALL RIC ROMERO!!
  • The article needs more pumpkin pie charts.
  • 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.
  • I'm paying 12.99 for the Golden Corral Thanksgiving buffet.

    /not really
  • Aren't we getting to the time where we see that stupid "Cost Of Christmas" analysis with the "12 Days Of" being used as the baseline comparison?

    Christ....that gets stupider every year.

    that would be very sad.
    no..you cant come over.
  • That's weird. I've never paid more than $0.48/pound at Wegmans for a turkey...what turkey were they paying $23 for??
    ...And the freezer is full of them.
  • 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!
  • I order our turkey from a local butcher. 25 pounds smoked was 98.50.

    /cannot wait...
  • Is that adjusted for 1621 dollars?
  • Price charts? No, Thanksgiving is the season for pie charts.

  • the rising cost of Thanksgiving dinner.


    Someone should send them the link to Costco-boxed-frozen-Thanksgiving-dinne​r discussion one thread down. Minds could be blown.


    Unlikely yet still theoretically possible.

    Just bought a standing rib roast for 5.99 a pound......so im getting a kick.
  • FTFA: If you are the type of person who desperately wants to host Thanksgiving in your own home but doesn't want to/doesn't know how to cook and also somewhat dislikes the people you're inviting over, this box is for you

    Awesome summary. I want to just buy a few doses of the green beans to send to a few people I've hated over the years...
  • 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.

    no..you cant come over.


    I'd stay home by myself before doing that, but I've got a place to go on Thanksgiving. Maybe you've missed the TV commercial, but I can't help but laugh at it.
  • I got my turkey for free because I spent a couple hundred on other groceries at WinCo Foods.

    All i got from my grocery store for spending rhousands of dollars there was a coupon for .60 cents off a gallon of fuel....and they dont even sell diesel.
  • If you ignore the cost of the turkey, which is half of the total, the adjusted totals are $32.80 (2011) and $28.84 (2012), a net decrease of $3.96, or -13.8%.

    In other words, prices for everything except turkey have dropped by 1/7.
  • I also came into the thread to ask where the writer was paying almost $30 for a turkey. .79 a pound would be expensive here.
  • Turkey was free due to $$$ spent at store
    celery WAS .99 a bunch
    I make fresh cranberry sauce
    Potatoes were way cheaper than listed
    Onions were too
    I make homemade stuffings - one with bacon/ mushroom the other with apple/ham so a bit more expensive
    butter and milk were cheaper
    I had a coupon for the pumpkin to make pie so that was cheaper
    hmmmm.....
  • Interesting, the only name brand mentioned on the list was the Butterball turkey. I'm sure this article wasn't sponsored. Nope, couldn't be.
