Looking for a way to cut-back on your Thanksgiving Day costs, without sacrificing the quality and deliciousness you've grown accustom to?  Experts have compiled the seven best ways to save on this year's Thanksgiving costs.

1. Double-check the guest list.


Always be sure you have an accurate listing of who plans to attend this year's big dinner. Unless you want a fridge full of leftovers, it is critical to have a handle on your guest list.

2. Get ahead of the menu.

Find out what your guests like and ask if they have any dietary restrictions.  No sense spending time and money on a dish that nobody wants to eat.

3. Say "Yes" to potluck.

Say "Yes" to any guest that asks if they can bring something.  However, make sure to put some thought into it.  Know your menu ahead of time and let your guests add where they would like.

4. Smaller plates = Less waste.

Use smaller dinnerware to reduce waste. If guests want more, they'll refill!

5. DIY decor.

Shop local and use some imagination when it comes to decor for the day.  Look for easy, inexpensive DYI ideas online.

6. Be flexible - Shop the sales.

Stores will typically run specials on Thanksgiving staples well in advance.  So - plan your menu in advance to take advantage.  Also be sure to keep your menu flexible in case a new sale arises.  Oh yeah - shop around for that Turkey!  

7. Go homemade.

Nearly everything is less expensive and tastes better when it is homemade.
