I am the host of T day dinner for the family. This year there will be 23 of us. I take care of the dinner, pies, fruit bowl, chips, salsa,cheese/crackers, wine etc. Family brings appetizers and their signature "goodie." We have a wonderful day eating and relaxing. Have been shopping all weekend. For the heck of it, I decided to keep track of my receipts. So far, I am over $300.00- and have not picked up the turkeys or wineyet- looks like it will be a more than $400.00 meal. SOunds like a lot, but is really less than $25.00 per person. Does anyone else keep track of what they spend?
I shop at BJ's, Trader Joes, two local supermarkets and buy all my produce at a local farm.
