There’s wild financial advice around the holidays and then there’s the advice being spewed on NBC where a cost-savings expert advised people to “forgo the turkey” this year and if you’re worried it’ll kill your Thanksgiving party that might actually be a good thing.
“If you tell everyone you’re having a Thanksgiving without turkey, some guests may drop off the list—and that’s a way to cut costs, too,” the expert told viewers.
What the hell, lady?
So you’re supposed to go cheap, cut out the bird and that will create family memories for years to come? And these bozos don’t think anything of throwing out this advice.
And then when grandma says the Thanksgiving prayer, she can thank Bidenflation for that empty plate on the dinner table and tap water instead of cranberry & 7-Up.
“The American Farm Bureau estimates a Thanksgiving feast for 10, complete with sweet potatoes, rolls, a vegetable tray and a pie with whipped cream, will cost $53.31 this year, up 14% from a year ago. It’s an unusual spike. Before this year, the annual cost estimate had been falling since 2015,” the Associated Press reported Monday.
What’s causing all this? Ask the people who sell the turkeys.
“The inflation is real. Everybody is saying that. Everybody is feeling it,” Butterball President and CEO Jay Jandrain told the AP. “Whether it’s labor, transportation, packaging materials, energy to fuel the plants – everything costs more.”
While the NBC cost-saving expert is telling people to just not buy a turkey, smart people are finding ways around the Bidenflation. Ibotta, a receipt-scanning app, is offering 100% cashback on 10 specific Thanksgiving meal items at Walmart.
Those items include a turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, corn muffin mix, cranberry sauce, and a two-liter bottle of Coca-Cola.
The last thing you should be doing is listening to the NBC ‘Today’ bozos who want you to start living like a third-world nation on Thanksgiving.
