Thanksgiving is around the corner and there is good news for those who will be having a good Thanksgiving meal. According to the Houston Chronicle, the Texas Farm Bureau reports that a dinner for ten will cost $46.75 which is a 4.3 percent drop from 2016.

According to the Houston Chronicle, the Texas Farm Bureau says that price includes more than the turkey and stuffing.

In it's annual Thanksgiving Meal Report, the bureau surveys the cost of 10 holiday staples, including turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce and pecan pie.

"Texans can budget a little less for the traditional Thanksgiving meal," said Russell Boening, the group's president.

He attributes the drop, in part, to a good production year for turkey farmers across the country -- not so good, perhaps, for Tom Turkey that may be facing the chopping block soon, even though much of that is due to record amounts of turkey kept in cold storage.

So while you are celebrating Thanksgiving this year, give thanks for the money you saved. Just don't spend all your savings in one place.
