How to Keep Your Thanksgiving Budget Low

You Don’t Always Have Enough Cash to Spend on Everything

Thanksgiving is great fun when you have cash to spend on everything you need to prepare. Whether you plan a huge holiday bash or you only want to invite friends over to watch football after the meal, you’ll need to think about your budget. If you don’t have money for fancy food, it’s ok because by preparing ahead of time, you can get by on a shoestring. There is no need to go into credit card debt, because even if you don’t have enough cash on hand, you can apply for car title loans. Just submit the title to your car with your online application to get cash in one hour.

Preparing Ahead of Time

Pumpkin PieBegin your Thanksgiving preparations with a complete list of everything you’ll need to serve your family and guests. Once you have a list, you’ll be able to itemize, prioritize and check prices on each item. If you see that something you want to serve costs too much ready-made, find recipes and instructions for making it by scratch. So long as you begin ahead of time, you can experiment and be ready. Some items you might be able to cook in the weeks before Thanksgiving and put them in the freezer until time to heat and serve. You can also use the time to experiment with using less expensive ingredients in your recipes.

Making it Fun with Potluck

Potluck meals, even at Thanksgiving, are fun because everyone can be involved. Keep the main dish of turkey for yourself, but by asking guests to bring a dish, you can increase the variety on the table while sticking to a low budget. Just ask ahead what each guest will bring so you don’t end up with ten varieties of green beans!

Holiday Decor

You don’t need to spend money decorating your home for Thanksgiving. Children will be thrilled to create pictures for the walls. It’s fall, so go outside and pick whatever is native to your area. Beautiful leaves, pine cones and brightly colored candles can all be arranged to bring the holiday spirit to your table.
