    I was shocked when I looked for a turkey at the market. They were much too expensive, around $85 for a large fresh one. I will buy a smaller frozen one to keep the price down. I paid $8 for three large potatoes and practically had a conniption at the price. I will bake my own pumpkin pie (pumpkin puree, sweetened condensed milk, pumpkin spice and a shortbread crust) totally easy and much less expensive than buying one from the bakery. Honestly with the disappearance of many of my normal go to products due to supply line shortages, to the huge price increase in other products and the shortage of market staff to serve the customers, I wonder just where we are heading.

      I paid $4.54 for a 12 pound frozen turkey on Saturday (37 cents a pound) and a 10 pound bag of russet potatoes can be had for $4.49. I live in a suburban area with a high cost of living. The prices you’re describing are absurd. Where are you shopping?? Whole Foods?

    Where do you live? I can get 5lbs of potatoes for $.99 (for the whole bag), a 20lb turkey that’s not even on sale for $38 and gravey is homemade with the drippings. Add $10 for milk and butter. And always make homemade pies and cheesecake with fresh ingredients which ends up being around $8 per desert. The rest of the meal is stuffing (which is cheap ingredients) green bean caserol and whatever else I feel like making. I could feed 10 people for $100….??

    This article is comical. People are skipping Thanksgiving…yet every restaurant is town is packed with people every night. Things are bad enough already…you don’t need to help.
