I just love a bargain! Yesterday was full of bargains and I'm so happy we went out. All I had to do was pick them up, they were just falling into my lap.
It started out when a flyer caught my eye and I saw the gift I wanted to get for hubby on sale. Yesterday was the last sale day and I really didn't think they would still have any left but they did. I saved $20. by going there and it took all the pressure off Christmas shopping as the main gift is now in my hands.
Then we decided a few grocerys were needed. As I turned the corner, I saw a whole bin of turkeys marked down to .39 lb. Never one to pass up a bargain, I bought one, thinking I could cook it right away as I didn't have any freezer space. When I got home, I did make room in the freezer so I was able to save this turkey for Christmas dinner and I ran back to the store for one more turkey to cook today. In fact, I just popped it in the oven now, it will be ready for dinner in about 5-6 hours.
We enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner but when it was over, I really missed not having any turkey leftovers. There is nothing like the turkey sandwiches later in the week or being able to just put a chunk of meat off for a snack. Now we'll have that too.
While I'm grateful for the bargains that I did get, I am also grateful for NOT finding any bargains in the pie or dessert department, lol. I'm sure I would not have been able to pass those up so it was a good thing. Things always work out and what will be, will be!
