Thirfty Tuesday

on November 16, 2010

After enjoying my sleeping in today..(ok i fell asleep on the couch last night, woke up at 7am, then went to bed) till 9:30 am, I moved back to the couch and started going through my coupons and the ad’s to figure out what I could afford for thanksgiving.. once I got all that in order, I headed to the store..

King Soopers (a Kroger Company)

  • Butterball Turkey-12lbs at .99 per lb =$12.42 -$4 coupon = $8.79
  • Stove top stuffing x2 @ $1.25 each = $2.50 -$1 coupon =$1.50
  • Betty crocker mashed tatoes x2 @$1.69 each =$3.38 -.50 ecoupon & -.50 paper coupon (doubled)  =$1.86
  • Heinz gravy on sale $1.25 (no coupon, the website was out of them)
  • Pillsbury crescent rolls x2 @$1.50 each = $3 -.50 ecoupon & -.40 paper coupon (doubled) =$1.70
  • Total for thanksgiving dinner =$15.10

I also have a rebate from butterball to send in my receipt and get $5 back in butterball coupons. Woohoo already printed out that form.

So I may not be as frugal as this guy getting his thanksgiving dinner for $1, but i think i did a great job.

I also bought a loaf of bread ($1) and a block of extra sharp cheddar cheese ($2.99) to hold me over till payday, hello grilled cheese sandwiches for the next week lol, and a bag of Tortilla Chips ($1) for the salsa I had at home, but those werent part of the thanksgiving tally…

My receipt states the following savings:

  • Manufacturers coupons: $6.90
  • Doubled coupons:  $.90
  • Store card savings: $14.53
  • For a total of $22.33, which is 53% off my shopping bill!

I still some green beans left in my cupboard, and if I decide to invite anyone over (which would require cleaning off the dining table) I can suggest they bring a pie or some sides or something… we’ll see what happens..

    Hanging head in shame. No real mashed potatoes? No homemade gravy? For shame. LOL. What are we going to do with you?
