PHOENIX -- A lot of people will be doing their shopping for Thanksgiving this weekend, and if you do your research, you can find some decent prices on some of the biggest Thanksgiving items.

Grocery stores are stocked up and ready to go as shoppers look for their Thanksgiving items.

Robert Howard said shopping for a Thanksgiving meal can get expensive.

"A party of 51, sit-down dinner. We are cooking four turkeys this year to start with," he said.

Some people have learned how to cut the cost.

“I always go through the paper, and I put what I see at different stores that I want that's on sale,” said shopper Donna Park.

Fry's advertises turkey for 79 cents per pound with a $25 purchase.

At Bashas’, they have a turkey price chart set out for you. If you need a 12-pound turkey, it'll cost you $9.48.

At Wal-Mart, the deal for turkeys is 78 cents a pound with no minimum required purchase.

And if you have don't want to defrost a turkey this year, you can order a fresh turkey meal at Sprouts until Sunday.

Safeway advertises a 5-pound bag of potatoes for 99 cents and Fry’s for 69 cents. A 10-pound bag will cost you 87 cents at Bashas'  or 77 cents at Albertsons.

For veggies, it costs 87 cents a pound for green beans, yams or sweet onions at Bashas'.

It’ll cost 67 cents for a 12-ounce bag of frozen vegetables at Fry’s. Safeway is offering two bags for $3 and Albertsons is offering two for $5.

If you're not happy with these prices, many grocery stores advertise that they will match the price of another store's advertised deal.
