For the third year in a row Thanksgiving food is actually cheaper than the year before.
The American Farm Bureau Federation just released its 33rd annual study on how much it should cost to serve Thanksgiving dinner this year. They say that you should be able to serve dinner for 10 people for just $48.90, or less than $5 per person.

That's based on serving these 10 things:
Turkey
Stuffing
Sweet potatoes
Rolls with butter
Peas
Cranberries
Veggie tray
Pumpkin pie with whipped cream
Milk
Coffee

The $48.90 total cost is down 22 cents from last year, mostly thanks to slightly lower prices for turkey.

How much do you spend on Thanksgiving food? I never really figured how much I was overpaying because I definitely spend more than $50 on food. This list also didn't factor in alcohol and that is just as common as Turkey at most Thanksgiving meals.
