Holiday Meals: Consider Some Alternatives
The usual turkey or ham dinner might not be as economical this year. Lessen your financial stress and consider one of these:
- Have a buffet-style, pre-cooked dinner. (Rotisserie chicken and a couple of side dishes, for example.)
- Go pot luck! When everyone chips in a little, the host family can save a lot.
- Order out. Chinese food or pizza for 10 can be shared, and a little goes a long way.
- In essence, keep it simple. Less prep, more time with family and friends (or more time to yourself)!
