I'm ALWAYS shocked at what the tab is when I check out. The "big shop" was over $100 (just the 2 of us this year!!) and, of course, there's always the stuff you gotta run back and get. One year we threw in the towel and went to Marie Callender's for Thanksgiving...I think they had a buffet only choice and it was around $50 for the 2 of us. Of course, there were no leftovers for a 2nd dinner or yummy sammiches either. I'm pretty traditional and enjoy doing Thanksgiving and Christmas in a big way...storing those leftovers, tho. . .THAT can become a problem.
