Kroger and Harvest Foods both have turkey for $0.69/lb. You can get a pre-baked turkey with stuffing and gravy at Kroger for $30. Even though national averages say that a Thanksgiving dinner is more expensive this year than last, it still only costs about $4 per person to make a home made dinner.
Arkansas Business has a turkey dinner price breakdown. Interestingly, the most expensive city to eat Thanksgiving dinner is Arkadelphia, at $47.99. The least expensive was Jonesboro, at $36.48.
There are dishes and cooking if you stay home at eat. That's one plus to eating out.
