Shopping and Stuff

$154 .89 of food at full price

Did my 1 hour in the scraproom working on recipes, cleaned up in the garden, tad bit of housework then hit the road.

Picked up a few Christmas gifts for Rambo man, got a couple of things for the kids then on to the grocery store for holiday food shopping.
I had some super coupons for things we will need over the upcoming holidays. Everything pictured was on sale and I had a coupon for each item, coupons were doubled so that beefs up the savings. Even had 2 coupons for $4.00 off butterball turkey's that were also on sale. Total cost $56.51 total saved $98.38. The turkeys alone were $48.15 if they would have been at full price. Ya whoo!! The savings from today helped cover the cost of the Christmas gifts.
It is hard to believe this little bit of food would have cost $154.89, but there you have it, groceries have really gone up in price and the cost is continuing to rise. The cost increase is one of the many reasons we have a fully stocked deep pantry, why pay full price when you don't have to. Gonna surf the net and see if there are anymore turkey coupons while they are on sale right now. We like turkey and at a sale price of $1.10 a pound you can't beat that price with other cuts of meat. We have never had to throw out leftover turkey but I would love to figure out something to do with the yuck stuff leftover. I plan on making turkey stock with it but now need to find something we would like to eat using the stock. Google here I come.
