5 Simple Ways to Do Thanksgiving on a Budget

2014-10-12 15.47.38

Here in Canada, Thanksgiving is right around the corner. For many homes this is the week to get ready for this wonderful holiday with family and friends. Who doesn’t love the smell of a turkey roasting or cranberries simmering on the stove. I know it is one of our favourite holidays. From decor to dessert we put time and attention into the little details and it is important for use to do thanksgiving on a budget. So how do we do thanksgiving on a budget?

GIVE

First, we think of ways we can give back, after all we have much to be thankful for. Did you know many families are worried about what they will have on their tables, so one of our thanksgiving rituals is to find a way to give back. I have been blessed over the years to be apart of some very special Thanksgiving projects from feeding families to the feeding of 5000 on a beach in California. Can you think of a way you can give or give thanks for someone who is in your life?

DECOR

Every year since my teen was real little we have decorated while spending very little. We love decorating with leaves, pinecones and candles. We sometimes and a pumpkin and squash which will both be cooked with later. There are so many ways you can decorate on a budget for thanksgiving, can you think of a few?

SIMPLICITY

I have been to some thanksgiving meals over the years that look more like a grand feast with at least 10-15 dishes and at least 4 to 5 desserts. I love the look of some of these fancy recipes, but how about making 1 or 2 extra special sides that everyone loves so you can have time to enjoy the day and not break the bank.

POTLUCK

With our huge family, when we did the holidays at Grandma’s house, everyone had a role to play. If you have family or friends coming for Thanksgiving dinner it is more than okay to ask people to bring a dish, you can even assign them one. No one needs 3 green bean casseroles right? Have someone who is vegetarian or gluten free you want to make sure you remember them as well.

TECHNOLOGY

One of my biggest tips for sticking to a holiday budget is to make technology your friend. Have you downloaded the Flipp app yet? I have written about it several times over the last 2 years and it has just gotten better with Flipp 3.0. For the busy mom who is in charge of the menu and the meal planning this app saves you time and money. Did you know the average family is cutting at least 25% off their grocery bill by simply using the app.

Flipp collects more than 800 retail flyers from national chains as well as hundreds of local stores to help shoppers find the latest sales in their community through coupon matchups to local flyer deals. It’s a feature that is rolling out everywhere.
