The Thanksgiving holiday is based on a very simple concept: Being grateful for what you have, and spending time with your family. Unlike Halloween or Christmas, very little decoration and spending is required to enjoy a successful Thanksgiving.
Here are six easy, affordable ways to celebrate Thanksgiving this year:
Many markets and national grocery chains offer free turkey promotions in the months leading up to Thanksgiving. Keep your eyes open for weekly newspaper ads and commercials for your chance to score a free bird.
Instead of being the only one to spend money and put in all the effort of preparing a Thanksgiving feast, invite your guests to contribute one of their favorite sides by hosting a potluck. Have your guests sign up for dishes they can bring via an Evite, group text, or Facebook Event.
There are plenty of common sense ways to have an affordable Thanksgiving, such as nixing unpopular dinner dishes and appetizers. (With all that turkey and mashed potatoes, you don’t really need appetizers anyway.) Think about the people coming to your home for dinner and only go with things they’ll actually enjoy. Don’t let past customs dictate what you spend your money on if no one really appreciates the time or effort you put into preparing it.
It doesn’t take much to make your Thanksgiving memorable. Here are a few ways to start:
You may have heard it all before, but it’s worth repeating because the following tips will save you a lot of money by the time Thanksgiving dinner rolls around:
As the sayings go, money isn’t everything and it won’t buy you happiness, but the fact is, you still need it in order to get by. Perhaps you’re overburdened by monthly bills or unexpected expenses and don’t know how you’ll pay for everything. Fortunately, there’s at least one way to help your situation: Getting a title loan.
This is a particularly good option when you don’t have good credit or can’t qualify for a traditional loan. If you’re eligible, you could get up to $15,000 while continuing to drive your car. So, don’t hesitate another minute, because leaving your financial stress behind you at Thanksgiving is something we can all be grateful for.
