Thanksgiving will be here before you know it, and, for most people, that means one thing: a last-minute trip to the mall, the supermarket, and the drugstore, hoping you still have time to score those holiday essentials you forgot to add to your list in the weeks prior.

The good news? This year, you can avoid the mad dash and consolidate those errands with a single trip to Walmart. The megastore has everything from clever serving solutions to a grocery aisle so bountiful that it would make the pilgrims weep. The best part? The perfect Thanksgiving doesn't have to cost you an arm and a leg (unless you're in fact a turkey—in which case, no promises).

And for more throwbacks, don't miss these 15 Classic American Desserts That Deserve a Comeback.

Pacific Natural Organic Creamy Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut squash soup

Soups are an ideal fall meal, but many at-home chefs find the prospect of making them from scratch daunting. If you're not sure where to begin, this could be your perfect solution. Heat it up on the stovetop and eat it as-is, or use it as a base for additional roasted harvest veggies or meat. Top it off with croutons or a dollop of sour cream and decorate it with a sprig of rosemary for an easy Thanksgiving appetizer that tastes every bit as good as the homemade stuff.
