Happy Thanksgiving!

We would like to wish all of the readers of this blog as well as the users of this site a Happy Thanksgiving! The picture is what the first Thanksgiving from the pilgrims may have looked like.

The economy in 2018 is the strongest it has been in years, and the unemployment rate at historic lows with wage increases now flowing to people of all backgrounds, races, religions, and incomes. Poverty rates are dropping, and millions of more people have entered to job market and found employment, including those with a criminal background, the disabled, seniors, and others. So at the very least that is one thing to be thankful for today. I just hope as I write this we are not “peaking” in the economy as there are some indications of…but time will tell.

While it may be a little late for this, we do have extensive information on this site and blog for how to save money on Thanksgiving meals as well as how to get free food or groceries. There are also tips for saving money on any shopping you may be planning to do, information on free coupon programs, website shopping comparison tools and much more.

Millions of people have accessed this information on our site and blog over the years, and we encourage you to continue to review the site. As there are ways to save money, whether on Thanksgiving day or year round. And if you plan to shop for the Christmas holiday, due it smartly. Set a realistic budget, and if need be only buy your “needs” and not your “wants”. Use the various free tools out there for saving money as well.

Whether you are spending the holidays alone (like millions of Americans), with family, if you are working today, or maybe doing something very selfless like volunteering to help the poor or homeless, or spending the day in some other fashion, we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!
