Make a Frugal Holiday Dinner

I have a confession to make. I've never made a holiday dinner. As in ever. I've helped somewhat but haven't done the full blown turkey in the oven and homemade stuffing as a hostess. We go to our parents' houses and that's fine for us for now!

But just because I haven't cooked a holiday meal doesn't mean I don't know how to get the fixins' on the cheap. In fact, this tip is one that you will have to wait closer to Thanksgiving and Christmas for to save more money. The seasonal sales cycles will be full force in November and December so you can pick up the best prices all year on ham, turkey, potatoes, sweet potatoes, pumpkin and all that other stuff to go with the dinner.
