Thanksgiving feast should cost less

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Thanksgiving dinner can often leave quite the dent in your wallet. However, this year, Wisconsin shoppers can expect Thanksgiving dinner to be a little less expensive.

The Wisconsin Farm Bureau says the average price of a traditional Thanksgiving meal this year is just under $49. That's a savings of about $1.30, or 3 percent, from last year. It's also 60 cents cheaper than the national average.

Wisconsin's main savings are in the cost of the turkey. The bureau says a 16-pound turkey will average $22.72 this year. Last year it would have cost 48 cents more.

The bureau calculates the average cost of a dinner for 10, which would include turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes and cranberries.
