It also found the cheapest cities for Thanksgiving dinner this year are Corpus Christi, Texas . . . Fort Wayne, Indiana . . . and Raleigh, North Carolina.  Honolulu, New York, and San Jose tied for most expensive.

2.  And speaking of costs:  A separate poll looked at the top ways we’re trying to save money on Thanksgiving dinner this year.

Our top strategies include keeping an eye out for deals . . . using coupons . . . shopping early . . . sticking to our list . . . and comparing prices.

Also, 88% of us are cutting at least one dish from the menu this year, which should make Thanksgiving a little cheaper.
