This week finds me shopping at Market Basket again. Stop&Shop did not offer any gas points deals this week which was a total heart breaker. I guess they figure that everyone has to shop during the holiday, so why try to entice them further?
Stop&Shop isn’t the only one using this tactic. As I flip through my grocery ads, I see that there are lackluster food “deals” everywhere. Not only that, but shelf prices appear to be climbing while promotions are decreasing. A worrisome trend.
But eat we must. So, off to Market Basket I went. While their circular wasn’t particularly spectacular either, they had $1.66 Ocean Spray cranberries which is the lowest price I’ve seen lately.
While it may appear that I’m doing my Thanksgiving shopping, I’m not. I’m stocking up on .59/lb turkey while I can. I’m only allowed to buy two turkeys a day at Market Basket which means they are going to see a lot of me this week.
My plan is to shove 14 of these birds in my freezer. It will be the ultimate game of Turkey Tetris, but I’m up for the challenge. How often do you get .59/lb proteins?
Between my coupon binder, turkeys and the milk, it was amazing that I could get the cart to roll through the store.
And here you see the mountain of cranberries. I’m kind of a cranberry fool. As much as I love home made cranberry sauce as a side dish, I equally love them in baked goods and on top of pork loin or chops.
If you love cranberries as much as I do, definitely check out what I made yesterday for a decadent holiday appetizer. And it’s easy to make! Gotta love that during the hectic holiday season!
Tomorrow I hit the drug stores because I’m low on some things couponers shouldn’t be low on. It hurts me to type the following two words. Toilet paper. Gah. Can you believe it? The Coupon Goddess would’ve never let that happen. I hang my head.
How about you? Are your store sales ho-hum this week as well? Have you started your holiday food shopping yet? Do you even have your holiday menu planned? Dish with me!
