Turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie.

These are just some of the staple dishes that appear on a Thanksgiving table. But the prices of these foods and the ingredients to make them have skyrocketed, making it almost impossible to serve up an authentic holiday dinner like grandma used to make.

Inflation in the U.S. accelerated in September, with the cost of housing and other necessities intensifying pressure on households.

The latest government report on consumer prices showed poultry prices are up 17% from a year ago, flour has jumped up 24% and butter and margarine prices have increased by 32% compared to a year ago.

Even more alarming is that one in four Americans plan to pass on Thanksgiving this year to save money, according to a new survey from Personal Capital. It also said more than one in four people will budget around $100 for this year's turkey dinner.

Now, one of America’s fasting growing retailers wants to help shoppers enjoy a more affordable Thanksgiving with 2019 prices.

Aldi has announced its Thanksgiving Price Rewind, offering affordable prices on holiday essentials from appetizers to desserts, to sides and beverages.

Favorites like brie cheese, prosciutto, cornbread stuffing, award-winning wines, mini quiches, fresh brown-and-serve rolls, macarons, and apple pie to name a few, will be sold at 2019 prices.

There are 62 ALDI stores in New Jersey.

How much does the average NJ home cost? Median prices by county

Everything is costing more these days — and housing is certainly no exception in New Jersey.

Data for 2022 from January through August, compiled by New Jersey Realtors, shows that South Jersey has been seeing homes hit the market and sell in less than a month, on average.

Median prices for single-family homes have reached $500,000 and above in nine counties in North and Central Jersey.

All but two counties have seen houses go for more than the list price, on average, this year.
