The cost of the entire meal is going up, despite the fact that the price of turkey is down 13 percent from last year. Overall, expect to shell out $49.41 for the bird, gravy, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, stuffing and more.

Millennials and Money

A recent Bank of America/USA Today survey reiterates a lot of what we already know about millennials. While they're fiscally conservative - paying off their credit card debts on time - they don't have a lot of money to save, nor are they getting by on their own. One-third of them still depend on "the bank of mom and dad," according to CNBC's Sharon Epperson.
