Unfortunately, inflation has hit and as always, the cost of food has risen. With that said, get ready to spend more on your Thanksgiving Holiday meal. In fact, get ready to pay 13% more for your Turkey Day.

Each year the American Farm Bureau Federation has an annual survey of what it costs for a traditional Thanksgiving Meal. According to the findings of the AFBF Survey

:

AFBF’s 26th annual informal price survey of classic items found on the Thanksgiving Day dinner table indicates the average cost of this year’s feast for 10 is $49.20, a $5.73 price increase from last year’s average of $43.47. The AFBF survey shopping list includes turkey, bread stuffing, sweet potatoes, rolls with butter, peas, cranberries, a relish tray of carrots and celery, pumpkin pie with whipped cream, and beverages of coffee and milk, all in quantities sufficient to serve a family of 10.

So make sure you budget at least $6 more for your family of 10 for your Thanksgiving Dinner this year.

Now if you don't feel like cooking this year, there are some alternatives that may turn out to be a bit cheaper than cooking dinner yourself or may cost a bit more but the stress is off you in the long run.
