Waiting to do your Thanksgiving shopping? Here's a tip. Shop for a turkey early in the day, when the cooler is still full and you have better options. Shopping at 4:30 at Jewel today left me with two options: a 12 lb bird I couldn't use a coupon on, or a 19+ lb bird that would feed our family for a week and still make a big pot of soup.
My shopping is done, and it didn't go too badly aside from the lack of choice in birds. I walked out with:
- 8.5 lb. of sweet potatoes
- 2 bags of Brownberries stuffing cubes
- 2 rolls of sage sausage
- 2 cans of pumpkin puree
- 2 cans of olives
- 1 can of cranberry sauce
- 1 box of Hershey's Special Dark cocoa
I've updated my spreadsheet with prices for Garden Fresh Market as well and a few prices I noticed at Jewel and Target. I'll try to fill in some Dominick's prices tomorrow.
