Boy did you make a good decision if you decided to not host Thanksgiving this year. The American Farm Bureau Assocation says the cost of Thanksgiving dinner is 20% more this year than last year, the highest it's been in 37 years!
The price of box stuffing has gone up the most, 69%. The only item that has gone down in price is cranberries (i'll bring those!) The price of a 16 pound turkey is up about 21% this year.
Even still, the price of a thanksgiving dinner for 10 is estimated to be $65.05 or about $6.50 per person.
