Want to serve a nice Thanksgiving dinner, but your budget is tight? There are local restaurants that offer Thanksgiving-To-Go packages, but, believe it or not, you might be able to get your best deal -- even cheaper than cooking yourself -- from your local market or grocery store. You might even consider ordering enough for some leftovers!
I update this listing until the week of Thanksgiving, so check back for updates.
