Thanksgiving dinner is delicious but it’s also a lot of work, and that table set with homemade Thanksgiving recipes can quickly bust a budget. We don’t want to skimp on the turkey and trimmings, but we also don’t want to blow all our cash just before the all-too-important holiday shopping season.

Of course, we can always just go with Thanksgiving dinner to-go, but part of the joy of the big holiday meal is preparing it ourselves at home. One way to keep the expenses in check is to take advantage of specials and deals, and many grocery stores and warehouse chains, such as Target, offer some sweet discounts. One such option is via Sam’s Club, where ingredients from their private brand Member’s Mark will run under $100 with enough food to feed a group of eight people. 

This includes a Member’s Mark All-Natural Whole Raw Turkey for $1.19 per pound and four pounds of Member’s Mark Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes for $7.98, as well as Member’s Mark Macaroni and Cheese for $3.48 per pound and Member’s Mark Sweet Potato Casserole (32 oz.) for $11.98.

Because that’s a whole lot of potatoes and pasta, side options also include Member’s Mark Brussel Sprouts for $5.88 per pound, and Member’s Mark Cranberry Crunch Salad for  $5.28 per pound, paired with Member’s Mark Yeast Dinner Rolls for $3.98 and for dessert, a Member’s Mark 9-inch Pumpkin Cheesecake (17 oz.) at $17.98.

These are individual dishes compiled to create a whole meal. So, you can always pick and choose in order to spend less money. Perhaps you get only one of the starchy sides along with the turkey and salad. Whatever you decide, now you have a bit of extra cash to splurge on holiday cocktails!
