Don’t Be a Turkey, SaveMoney This Thanksgiving
Your friendly neighborhood ﬁnancial aid assistant, Mary Ann Kaiser,wishes you an easy, breezy, beautiful Thanksgiving.
Ah, the holidays, that time of year when our waistlinesget bigger while our wallets get thinner. Whether youchoose to cook a Butterball or just become one thisThanksgiving, here are a couple of ideas to help you walk (or roll) away from the table with a few extra dollars inyour pocket.
Here at APTS we talk a lot about community.Why not live that community out this holiday byinviting your neighbors, friends, or colleagues toshare the meal? Not only will this bring youwarm, holiday fuzzies inside, it also cuts costs if everyone is willing to bring a dish rather thantrying to prepare the whole meal yourself. Manychurches also host Thanksgiving meals that giveyou a chance to celebrate together and get to knowmore of your fellow congregants.
Where two or more gather in the name of consuming turkey, leftovers will always bepresent. Package that extra meat in individual baggies for easy defrosting and then check outwww.eatturkey.comfor alternative ideas on howto get the most from your feathered friend likerecipes for Turkey Salsa Soup or Asian TurkeySalad. Mmm…
Just going to be you and another this year? Skipthe stress (and the cost!) of a whole bird by justcooking up a few turkey breasts.
Even if you aren’t Bobby Flay or Rachael Ray, youcan still make that dish from scratch. Brush up onyour culinary skills and save tons by whippingout Grannie’s cookbook and skip out on the store- bought items. If anyone tries to tell you that yourcooking is less than par, gently yet conﬁdentlyremind them that all creation is “good.”
Forgo cooking a meal altogether and help provideone for someone else instead. There are manyways to volunteer your time at soup kitchens,hospitals, or retirement homes. Operation Turkey
