A TikTok discount shopping pro shows how to spend $10 on a Thanksgiving meal for two
  • TikToker Rebecca Chobat went viral by showing shoppers how to shop for groceries at dollar stores.
  • This month she posted a video showing how to buy a Thanksgiving meal for two for $10.

TikToker Rebecca Chobat, who goes by the online alias "Dollar Tree Dinner," is a master in how to shop for groceries on a budget.

She's gained a cult following of budget shoppers through her walkthrough videos that show how to live off $35 worth of dollar store groceries for a week and still eat a varied diet, for example.

This month, she showed how to shop on a budget for a Thanksgiving dinner for two and headed to the low-cost grocery chain Food Lion to do so.

The whole meal — which can be cooked in a microwave and includes smoked turkey legs for $3.71, stuffing mix for $1.19, frozen Brussels sprouts for $1, mashed potatoes for $1.25, gravy for $1, and two small pies for $2 — comes to just over $10.

In comments below her video, TikTok users say it's the ideal solution for those who are celebrating Thanksgiving alone or are spending the holiday weekend in a hotel.

This year's Thanksgiving dinner is expected to be cheaper than last year, thanks to cooling inflation. A Thanksgiving meal for 10 will be $61.17, or approximately $6.12 per guest, according to this year's survey from the American Farm Bureau Federation.

This is a 4.5% drop from last year's "historically high" prices, the Farm Bureau said.

Retailers have been battling to offer discount meals for the holiday period. Walmart said it's "removing inflation" from Thanksgiving with another meal deal this year.

And Target announced earlier this month that it would be selling a $25 Thanksgiving meal for 4, which includes a 10-pound frozen turkey — after offering a similar deal at Easter.
