This Thanksgiving the real bargain is the holiday dinner with all the trimmings!  According to the American Farm Bureau, the nationwide average price for a Thanksgiving dinner is $48.90, but it’s much cheaper in Louisiana.  Just $22.63 after surveying a few Louisiana grocery stores.

''You'll pay considerably less in Louisiana,'' said Avery Davidson with the Louisiana Farm Bureau.

Davidson says turkey is much cheaper in the Bayou State when it comes to feeding a group of 10.

''In Louisiana you'll pay on average around $12.50, whereas what the American Farm Bureau found nationwide the turkey was around $21.50,"
Davidson said.

Davidson says if you shop around on other items for the feast you can do even better.
