It’s Friday and that means we are talking holiday shopping deals again! Our “Holiday Shopping Pro”, Melea of Freebies2Deals.com, is going to be joining us every other Friday through the holidays to share her expert tips for getting the best deals! If you’re in charge of Thanksgiving Dinner this year, like I am, you are going to want to read today’s post before you head out to buy all the fixins! Melea is telling us how to find everything you’ll need (for a family of 6-8 people) for less than $25.00!
Melea writes…….. Want to save money on all of your Thanksgiving Meal staples?? Guess where you will want to head this year? TARGET!
Each year, I put together a whole excel spreadsheet to figure out which store has the overall best price for your Thanksgiving Meal. And while I was putting it together, I actually stopped because Target ended up being the clear winner. (Of course, if you want to use the Target ad and Price Match at Walmart, you could do that too. I know that a lot of people don’t have a Target close by.)
Purchase Thanksgiving Dinner for 6-8 People for $24.32 at Target!
- 12 Pound Grade A Turkey $.89 a lb
- 2 Jars of Heinz Gravy $1.25 Each
- 3 Cans Del Monte Green Beans $.59 each
- 1 Can Cranberry Sauce $1.39
- 2 Boxes of Stove Top Stuffing $1.25 Each
- 5 lb Bag of Potatoes $1.99
- 12 Market Pantry Rolls $1.99
- 2 Cans Cream of Mushroom Soup $.75 Each
(**Keep in mind, this is WITHOUT coupons you can drop the price even more with printable coupons on some of these products OR by checking prices of the store brand of the same exact item. You cannot use manufacturer coupons on the store brand. So just go with what is cheaper: Name Brand with a Coupon, Name Brand, or Store Brand)
This week, Text GROCERY1 to 827438 and you will get a FREE $10 Target Gift Card with any $50 or more Food/Drink Purchase coupon texted to you. Show the cashier the barcode off your phone and he/she will hand you a FREE $10 gift card.
If we do a little math, getting that $10 gift card is just like getting $2 off every $10 we spend of that $50. So since we spent $24 just on Thanksgiving Meal Items, you will essentially be getting an extra $4 off – making your GRAND TOTAL for your Thanksgiving Meal only $20.32!
So if you need to feed more than 8 people, or if you just want to get other grocery shopping done while you are there that FREE $10 Gift Card with $50 purchase will really make a difference.
For those of you who want to save even more, there are coupons and Target Cartwheel Digital coupons you can use to drop the price even lower than $24.32! Here they are:

Hope this helps you save some money on your family’s Thanksgiving Meal! And if you want to know which store the best price on other grocery items you might need to pick up, you can use the Grocery Search Feature on Freebies2Deals.com. You can enter in an item like “butter” and find out which store has it for the cheapest price. And since butter has been so expensive lately, it might be one of those items you want to save a bunch of money on.
