Posted on Monday, November 28th, 2011 at 4:15 pm
The holidays are upon us and while it is a natural reaction to be worried about how much we are all going to spend I find myself excited to see how much I can save! This Thanksgiving I was in charge of mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, Jellied Cranberry sauce (my aunt does a home made one also), rolls, and a drink mixer. I was pleased to find out how little all of this would cost me! After doing a little research I made my plan of action. I had to get enough food for 18 people!
Here’s what I bought during my Thanksgiving shopping excursion:
10 lbs. of Potatoes: $1.00
4 Cans Cranberry Sauce: $2.00
6 lbs.Green Beans: $4.08
4 Cans Cream of Mushroom Soup: $1.20
2 French Fried Onions: $1.90
3 12 ct. Packages of Kings Hawaiian Rolls: $1.50
9 Tonic Waters: Free
Total (Had All Items Been Full Price): $63.98
I Paid: $11.50 Total Savings On Our Thanksgiving Feast: 82%
I got the milk for free with the purchase of 4 boxes of cereal. Luckily I had coupons for those so they cost me less than $1.00 each! Don’t stress! View the Holidays as a time to stock up on great savings!
