So I didn't get out early yesterday morning to hit the Black Friday shopping frenzy. But I did go out in the afternoon for the Double Dollar Coupon Event at our local grocery store. And as I suspected, the store was pretty empty and the shelves were full!
Here's what I came home with:
Before coupons and sales, my total was about $150. After coupons? I paid $47.36 plus I got $2 in catalinas back!
I was especially excited to get over 10 pounds of really beautiful-looking apples for less than $7 total! And I also was able to snag free toilet paper after coupons–something I've not been able to do in quite some time!
I'll be using some of this stuff for next week's Freezer Cooking Day. Some of it is for re-stocking our household supplies closet, and some of it, I'll be giving away or freezing to use for Christmas gifts and get-togethers.
I also purchased about 25 pounds of sweet potatoes this week because they were on sale for $0.25 per pound at Walmart. I spent an afternoon peeling and boiling and mashing these for Sweet Potato Casserole for our Thanksgiving gatherings and froze the rest to use as a side dish with dinners over the next few weeks.
I'll be posting my Freezer Cooking Day plan and next week's menu on Monday. Stay tuned for that!
