Thanksgiving on a Budget

How do you feed a large family for Thanksgiving on a budget?  I am going to tell you what I do, and it works for my family.  First I look at my local Bi-Lo grocery ad for the week.  Then I look for available coupons to save even more.  At Bi-Lo, your coupons are doubled!  Check out the coupon policy here.

My favorite deal this week using coupons is the Mrs. Smith's Pie.  It is on sale, buy one, get one free. You can find a printable coupon for fifty cents off a Mrs. Smith's Pie.  You can print most coupons twice.  So, with this deal, you pay:

3.49 for one pie
Use a fifty cent off Mrs. Smith's Pie coupon
Bi-Lo doubles that coupon.
Your final cost is $2.49 for a pie regularly priced at 6.99


That is a savings of $4.50.  I don't know about you, but I like saving money on items I will use for my Thanksgiving dinner.  Here is another deal of how I save money using coupons and my Bi-Lo Bonus Card.
Buy 4 Campbell's soup for 80 cents each=$3.20
Use a 40 cents off four cans of Campbell's Soup printable coupon along with your Bi-Lo Bonus Card
Total : $2.40or 60 cents per can of soup for all those casseroles we make for Thanksgiving.


Using my Bi-Lo BonusCard I not only save money, I earn fuelperks.  You can learn more about Fuelperks here.

Bi-Lo has everyday NEW low prices in place for the items you buy the most.  This week's ad has tons of deals for the items you need for a Thanksgiving feast. Through November 26. 2015 they will price match any advertised Grade A  frozen turkey price, including Butterball(while supplies last).  Bring the competitor's ad with a lower priced Grade A Frozen Turkey.

What are you waiting for?  Check out your local Bi-Lo ad online, check out the available coupons and maximize your savings.  You can have a Thanksgiving dinner your family will not forget and you can do it all on a budget.


Also, there are fantastic recipes from Chef Curtis Stone both online and in store.  I picked  these two recipes up in my local store and I must say, this Bourbon Pecan Pie will be on my Thanksgiving dinner table

  18. Unfortunately, we do not have a Bi-Lo store near us. I LOVE the fact that the store doubles coupons!! I am a huge coupon user & I would save quite a lot!! Some stores, around here, won't even take the printed coupons - let alone double them!! Even Kmart, on double coupon days, will only double the first 5 coupons that you give them.

  24. We dont have anyone who doubles coupons anymore. I wish we did because they would get a lot of business. I shop with coupons too. I dont do any ones with the printer though because I dont haave a printer.
