The store deals just aren’t bowling me over. I bought most of our Thanksgiving piecemeal as I saw deals come up for them. More planning = paying lower prices, for the most part.
Batteries (Yeah, I know, you can’t eat them, but they sure do come in handy for Christmas Morning)
Buy 5 packages of Duracell @ 1.98 each. This deal seems to be working on shelf prices, not sale prices, but ymmv. If it doesn’t work, you can always return them. But then again, $3.15 ain’t half bad for 5 packs of batteries.
- Use 4 $1.50/1 coupons from the 11/14 RP
- Use 1 $.75/1 coupon from the 10/10 PG or any home mailer
- Pay $3.15 out of pocket and receive a $3 coupon.
Kroger’s actual turkey day food prices aren’t bowling me over. HEB has them beat hands down for the basics.
Frozen Turkey – .22/lb
- For comparison, Kroger and Randalls are both .25/lb, Target is .68/lb and Food Town is .99/lb.
Sweet Potatoes – 6 lbs/$1 (again the best deal in town)
Cream of Mushroom or Cream of Chicken – $.50
- If you managed to find it (I only found 1 myself) – $1/4 coupon from the Savings Booklet, makes it $.25 each. It was also this price last week at Kroger. There’s also a $1/4 at the Campbells website, but I wasn’t able to get it to print. Even if you don’t have a coupon, that’s still a reasonable deal.
