Everyone knows that the holiday season is expensive! With Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner, your budget is definitely going to feel the pressure of this pricey yet festive season. But don’t let this stop you from throwing the perfect Pinterest-worthy Thanksgiving feast. Check out these deals that will cut your holiday costs in half so you won’t have to sacrifice anything this year!    

Spend Less At The Grocery Store:

Arguably the biggest part of your Thanksgiving budget will go towards groceries. Whether you’re going all-out with a turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce or are keeping it low-key with a simple dish, these things can add up- especially when you’re in charge of feeding a whole house full of people!

The key to saving at the grocery store is to budget and coupon! First, figure out exactly what you need and how much it should cost. It’s always better to buy on sale, in bulk, or generic brands to cut down costs even further.

But also taking advantage of helpful coupons can save you big bucks at the grocers. Promocodes has a variety of budget-friendly coupons that can help you save on groceries, whether you’re shopping for Thanksgiving or just a regular week. If you love shopping at Walgreens, you can receive 15% off your entire online purchase. We also have a coupon for WalMart that gives you $10 off fresh groceries when you spend $50 or more plus free shipping.

Set The Mood With Scent

There’s no better way to get your Thanksgiving guests in a festive mood than with a fall-scented candle. Not only will it make your entire home smell inviting, but it will also help create a warm, friendly atmosphere that is ideal for any Thanksgiving feast.

If you’re looking to make a statement with a scent, look no further than Bath & Body Works. They carry an incomparable selection of scented candles, including special fall-scented ones as well as ordinary scents. They also have body sprays, lotions, diffusers and other products in the same yummy smells. Use this coupon to get $10 off your purchase of $30 or more. You can also receive 20% off your entire purchase site wide.

Decorate For Less:

How are you supposed to host a Thanksgiving feast without decorations? Leaf garlands, festive wreaths, pinecones and more add a warm feeling to your space that will totally amp up the holiday factor. But shopping for decorations can get pricey, especially when you’re doing it only weeks before the big day.

The best way to save on decorations is to buy them right after the season ends. Things are usually discounted at least 50% off, so there are tons of savings to be had. Granted, you’ll have to wait all the way until next Thanksgiving to use them, but the savings are well worth it.

If you still want to do some decoration shopping in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, use one of these coupons to make it all the more affordable. Target is the place for decorations of all sorts. You can currently receive a $40 gift card when you spend at least $150 on home décor, or a $10 gift card when you spend $50. TJ Maxx is also a great one-stop shop for festive home décor. They’re currently offering free shipping on purchases of $89 or more.

Get Everyone To Pitch In:

There’s no reason you need to do everything by yourself! Your guests will probably be happy to pitch in and bring something, whether it be a dish or desert, or something to keep everyone entertained. Thanksgiving is a time to spend with friends and family, and there’s nothing that will bring you closer than everyone pitching in to make the feast a success.

Keep The Fun Going With Games:

One thing your guests definitely won’t mind bringing?  Games! You’ll want options for how to keep your guests entertained throughout the night. If you’re lacking on options, ask guests to bring over their favourite family-friendly movies, board games, video games or anything in between.

If you’re looking to invest in some classic board games that will keep you entertained for seasons, take a look at Toys ‘R Us. We currently have a promotion that will get you free shipping on purchases of $29 or more. Best Buy also has a great selection of board games as well as video games and movies to keep guests of all ages happy! You can currently save up to 60% off on items in the clearance section. There’s never been a better reason to get your own copy of Monopoly or Shoots N’ Ladders!

It’s easy to throw a Thanksgiving feast for half the price without sacrificing anything with these incredible deals. Have a happy (and budget-friendly) Thanksgiving this year!
