Thanksgiving dinner will not put as much of a strain on Americans’ wallets as it did last year, but still, with food inflation, finding ways to save is always welcomed.

The average cost of this year’s classic holiday feast for 10 will will be $61.17, or less than $6.20 per person, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation’s annual survey, which was released on Wed., Nov. 15.

Several stores, including Walmart, are offering deals ahead of the holiday to make your dinner not only simpler, but cheaper.

Walmart has put together “baskets,” or grocery lists, for two versions of a Thanksgiving dinner — one for a meal made of prepared foods, and one for a meal made from scratch. While both baskets are more expensive than the meal costs cited by the AFBF, the ingredients cost less this year than last, according to Walmart.

The prepared Thanksgiving dinner basket includes ready-to-heat macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes and dinner rolls, along with premade stuffing mix, cranberry jelly, turkey gravy and thaw-and-serve pies with whipped topping. The cost for four people is $60.64.

The from-scratch Thanksgiving dinner basket includes ingredients for making a whole turkey and ham, stuffing, green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, candied carrots and pumpkin pie with whipped topping. The cost for four people is $72.92
