Last week I didn’t really have my act together. So, this post is really a peek into two different sale cycles. Not that it really matters because there wasn’t all that much that floated my boat last week anyway.
What you see above is some cereal that was a pretty good deal at .80 to $1.10 a box at Stop & Shop after doubled coupons. I’m still grieving over their changes to the gas points program which pretty much renders it useless. So, I’m only shopping there now when there is a great deal with coupons.
Besides the cereal, there’s some juice that was pretty reasonable with $1/1 coupons and the store brand oatmeal had $1/1 peelie coupons on them making them $1 a box. My kids really like hot oatmeal and the price of Quaker has been pretty outrageous lately. Thank God there were some Quaker coupons in the paper today. I’ll be stocking up on that big time when a sale comes around.
Also, there are the fixin’s for a killer stuffed shells dish in the cart. You’ll have to check out A Beautiful Bite tomorrow for that recipe. If you like stuffed shells and are tired of red sauce, you’ll be quite happy with what I came up with.
And then this cart pic is from today’s shopping trip at Market Basket. It’s just my usual MB items. Produce, deli meats, bread and a few game day odds and ends. Today the Pats played (and won), which explains the soda. We don’t usually drink soda, but we make an exception for holidays and special occasions. A play off game is considered a special occasion in this house.
Nothing too earth shattering. I’m working on clearing out my freezer a bit. Those thirteen turkeys take up way too much space. Make that twelve. I cooked one tonight. That eighteen pound bird will feed us for days. Hot open faced turkey sandwiches, turkey salad, turkey pot pie, pilgrim sandwiches. Turkey. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
And this is a very good thing because I’ve gotten hooked on the Downton Abbey series. I started watching it several days ago and I’m already into the second season. By the end of the week I should be caught up to the current season. Who has time to cook when you can be watching that bit of acting genius?
Back to shopping and such. I was pretty delighted with the coupons that came out in the paper last week and this week’s was pretty good too. It looks like things are perking up on the coupon front.
How about you? What sales are you excited about this week? Are you feeling energized with couponing now that there are some decent coupons in the paper? More importantly, are you hooked on Downton Abbey too?
