Thanksgiving...Expensive or Thrifty?

Don't forget, today is the last day to sign up for my giveaway! click the picture on my sidebar!

For us it is going to be quite thrifty. That does not mean it isn't going to be a good size feast with lots of yummies!

It will be just be Troy, the little princess and me but, we are still doing a full traditional Thanksgiving dinner. We just hope to trim back the amounts of each of the dishes (that is so much easier said than done!).

Our table will be set. Most of the pretty dishware, decorations and glasses will be from thrift shopping. So, I don't have this beautiful grand tablescape with lovely matching dishes. They will be pretty all the same.

We have all the ingredients ready to be prepare. A lot has been purchased by doing mystery shops at grocery stores (we have to purchase a certain amount and then get reimbursed for it). The rest has been bought with matching sales and coupons.

Our holiday will be happy, beautiful and blessed!

So, how are you set for Thanksgiving?
