Bargain Day!

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

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!

    I liked bargain day. I am a fan of bargains too. But I always make sure I do not get something just because it is a bargain. I have lots of friends that do that. Like you wanting that extra turkey that is something you already had thought of and took advantage of the sale.

    I shop thrift stores and garage sales (love garage sales) but I make a list of what I am looking for when I go out and even if I see a really good deal on something I maybe could use but don't really need right now I don't get it. I just get things on my list or mental some day wish list.

    I too love having Turkey freshly made around cause it is such a good meat for us to stay in our calorie limits and yet enjoy good flavor.

    2nd Thanksgiving. Nice to have some Christmas shopping out of the way. I too love turkey sandwiches after but this time the turkey wasn't quite big enough, and that didn't take place. We might have changed to roast beef or ham, but not this year.
