Saving money during the holidays might seem impossible, but there are many ways to be frugal when it comes to holiday meals. Of course, create a food budget and never go shopping without a list in hand. For large family gatherings, consider making the dinner a potluck, where everyone brings a dish with them. Instead of buying expensive beverages, serve ice water with lemon and orange slices, for a refreshing and decorative drink. Always use leftovers! You can make plenty of things from the leftovers in your fridge. When you or your kids don’t finish their food, wrap it up and save it for later. You can also make broth or soup out of uneaten turkey or other meats and vegetables.
