Giving Thanks: Round 3

Today I am Thankful for avocados.

Avocados on sale for $0.69/each!
That is a GREAT price, and we're going to the store.

MMMMMM. Mushy, green avocado....

I'm also grateful for Brennan sleeping until 6:15 this morning. Still early, yes, but it beats 5:00 (the time he's been waking up lately)

I'm grateful for buying most of our Thanksgiving things last night, including the pies, turkey, stuffing, some of the veggies, and DRUMROLL....saving $10 in coupons!

The coupon total may be higher, depending on today.

I bought those oven bags for $2.29, then this morning I saw a $1 off coupon for them. The store doubles up to a $1, so if they'll honor it, I'll get $2 back and score those oven bags for $0.29. The store is close enough to our house that we're willing to make the trip and see if they'll honor it. I hope so! I love good deals.
**they honored it, and less than 5 minutes later Patrick walked out of there with $4. Sweet!*

Of course I'm thankful for my family & friends. I just happen to be food-focused today. ;)

What are you thankful for? There has to be at least one thing!

I've been doing the coupon thing for the past few weeks too!!!

Harris Teeter doubles coupons up to $0.99 every day (and occasionally triples them).

Bi-Lo will double coupons up to $0.69 all the time.

I got a ton of stuff at Harris Teeter a week ago for $8!!

My policy is to use any coupons for $1 or more at Wal-Mart since the local stores won't double/triple anything at or over $1--unless I can find stuff on sale.
