Your Thanksgiving Feast Will Cost Less This Year

After the average price of Thanksgiving dinner topped $50 for the first time ever in 2015, consumers are getting a break this year: the American Farm Bureau Federation says the average cost of a feast for 10 people will be $49.87, a $0.24 drop from a year ago.

The Federation, an agricultural trade group, looked at prices for turkey, bread stuffing, sweet potatoes, rolls with butter, peas, cranberries, a veggie tray, pumpkin pie with whipped cream, and coffee and milk — all in quantities capable of feeding 10 people with plenty of leftovers.

The star of the meal is about $0.30 cheaper per whole turkey (for a 16-pound bird) than it was in 2015, and should cost you about $22.74 this year.

Retired people who live on retirement benefits, saw a drop in income in 2016, due to Obamacare. The food may be cheaper but my 2015 income went down
in 2016

I don't know how they say you can have thanksgiving for ten people on 49.00!!The turkey was eighteen to twenty alone. And unless your serving them can biscuits and can vegetables and they only get one go around, then no way are you going to create a real thanksgiving on 50.00! Try more like eighty dollars or more!!
