This was a fun day as I had gotten $20 from my in-laws to buy the turkey for next week’s big family dinner. I KNEW I could get a turkey for a lot less than that and that they wouldn’t let me give them the change back — I had actually talked them down from $40!
Copp’s had Jennie-O turkeys for $.48 if you spent $25+ on your transaction. Cub Foods had the same brand bird for nine cents less if you spent $20+. I had blogged earlier about the price match and had my little flier with me at the store
There is also a Kellogg’s Deal (buy 6, get $10 off instantly and free milk coupon for a future visit). We are more than good with cereal right now (28 boxes in stock) but dear hubby said he would like some pop tarts for his break at work. The 12 count boxes were in this sale – he loves the unfrosted ones (ewwwww)!
We are also pretty well stocked so here is what we got today:
Turkey Bag (the ONLY way to cook a bird!) $1.66 (you get 2 in the box)
6 boxes poptarts @ $3.15
Clumping Cat Litter (21# box) for #4.99 (normally 6.29)
2 cans Bush’s Grilling Beans @$1.75
3 cans Swanson Chicken Broth #$.33 (normally .89 ea)
25.48 pound Turkey @$9.94 (normally $22.68)
10# bag potatoes @$1.98 (normally 2.49)
Coupons used – other than the price match for the turkey: two $1 off 3 poptarts (doubled), $.50 off Swanson broth (doubled), two $1 off Bush Beans (doubled to 1.75), $10 off instantly for the Kellogg’s deal.
Grand total $59.29 for $23.83…60% off.
NOW, subtract the $20 I was given for the turkey to bring it to just a $3.83 price AND I got a $4 off my next order coupon from Kellogg’s AND a coupon for $3 off milk on my next order…I got paid just a little over $3 to bring this all home!
Here is the monthly total
-9.92 – first Target run
-17.83 – second Target run
-4.72 (Shopko deals)
-3.26 (this week)
-12.03 (Noodles n Company meal)
-20.11 for Girls Gone Wild Weekend…
-$3.83 for Copps this week
$28.20 to go.
We are more than half way through the month and I have PLENTY of food here to feed the family – a few basics will keep us going.
I know we will go to Target tomorrow, a few boxes of FREE stuffing are calling my name along with some free personal care items…and I still need to get the sweet potatoes and canned pumpkin for the things I am making for Thanksgiving Dinner. Aldi’s has the best price on the sweet potatoes right now, I will probably get there this weekend. I am in charge of mashed potatoes, sweet potato pecan casserole and a pumpkin crisp – YUM! I can just taste the leftovers now (drool!)
What are you looking forward to next week: A big meal? A small meal? Leftover turkey sandwiches with cranberry relish on them? Yes, I just LOVE this time of year, LOL!
