The ShopAtHome.com Online Shopping Report has your back. Using our method, you’ll be ready to relax by 8 p.m. on Nov. 22 happy, full and with a clean kitchen and a shiny new set of happy memories.
How to host Thanksgiving dinner without breaking a sweat or the bank
1. Check ShopAtHome.com for printable coupons for Betty Crocker boxed potatoes, Butterball turkey, Dixie disposable dinnerware, Ocean Spray cranberry juice, Pepperidge Farm stuffing and cookies and Pillsbury crescent dinner rolls.
2. Look for Green Giant printable grocery coupons on our Green Giant page. The Butterball coupon requires that shoppers also put some of those great Green Giant veggies into their carts.
3. Chat with each of your guests and discuss what they might want to bring. It’s probably practical for you to handle the turkey and stuffing yourself, since your stuffed turkey will spend several hours in the oven — and, of course, hot turkey is tough to transport.
4. Once you’ve decided who will bring what, send links to the appropriate ShopAtHome.com printable grocery coupons to each of your guests. Then make a party out of your trip to the supermarket. Why? Because the $3 discount offered on the printable Butterball coupon requires that products from Pillsbury, Betty Crocker and/or Green Giant be purchased in the same shopping trip.
Now all you have to do is clean your house, cook your turkey and wait for the guests to arrive with the Dixie dinnerware, the Betty Crocker potatoes, the Green Giant veggies, the Pillsbury crescent rolls, the Ocean Spray cranberry juice and maybe some of those great Pepperidge Farm Mint Milano cookies for dessert.
When everyone leaves, all you’ll need to do is refrigerate the leftovers, toss the plates and relax. Now that’s a really happy Thanksgiving!
