—This is just a sample menu of what Thanksgiving foods you can buy at Trader Joe's for under $100. Take it as a guideline and customize your menu according to your preferences. Not a fan of Brussels sprouts? Try the haricots verts sautée kit or roasted asparagus. Gluten-free? Try the riced cauliflower stuffing or the rice pasta and cheddar mac 'n' cheese. There are so many items you can substitute.
—Dessert was far and away the most expensive part of my grocery budget, but you can always take advantage of Trader Joe's frozen and baked goods to save cash.
—Some of the frozen items take a bit of time to heat up, for example, the chicken and spaghetti squash spirals take around an hour. But everything on this menu is very low-effort, and you can easily cook the entire meal (minus baking) in two-three hours.
