With the upcoming Thanksgiving Feast next week I was researching current food trends in America in search of helpful insights so that I can make the most of my turkey day budget. It seems I am not alone in trying to stretch food dollars these days and some of the survey results I found surprised me:
59% have cut back on meat due to rising costs
61% rely on coupons and sales to cut food costs
42% have switched to less expensive brands
28% are buying more products in bulk
21% are planting their own vegetable gardens
I love a good Thanksgiving meal almost as much as I love my family so was interested in what others look forward to most over the 4-day Thanksgiving weekend. I created a quick 3 question online survey and I will share the results here next week for all those interested. Feel free to add your input here.
