Family and I went to Meijer today because they were having a turkey sale. We started buying some of the items needed for Thanksgiving Day. It seems less shocking on the wallet if a little is purchased week by week.
The first thing we did was look at the Turkeys. If you spent twenty dollars on other groceries , you got your turkey half off. Let me tell you how big my eyes got when I saw the prices of these birds.
Big, real big, almost bug out big. The turkeys were butter balls and I will admit they were nice size. Ready for the sticker price? These birds were between eighty and eighty-six, dollars per bird.
In all my years of purchasing Thanksgiving dinner, I never spent that much for the main meat, let alone see a price that high. Lucky for us, looking around we saw other nice, big birds more in the proper price range.
You add up the stuffing, green bean casserole , potatoes, rolls, desserts, and add that pricy bird on top, well let me just say Thanksgiving could possibly require a personal loan just for the meal.
