My running buddy stood me up this morning, got to run solo in the rain. It was early enough and rainy enough to keep people indoors, so no dodging dogs and folks out for a leisurely walk. My week-end routine has changed recently, but did include the usual walk through goodwill (no buying) and grocery outlet. I was too early for the turkey bowling event but the place was hopping. Got out of there quickly after buying more vegetables for turkey dinner #1.
Turkey cost $4.59
dressing mix .87
potatoes $1.00 for 10#
celery $1.50 for a lot
eggs $1.49 a dozen
can o' pumpkin from last year
fresh cranberries-freezer
brussel sprouts $2.00
flour- pantry
sugar- pantry
canned milk -pantry
All this adds up to be less expensive than one of those dinners in a box which have always sounded kind of intriguing.

By this afternoon, our household bills will be paid and we'll be paying principle with extra cash!

    You can buy a turkey for $4.59? I buy a Butterball and it's $35.00 or $40.00. I'm in Canada. What am I missing here (other than money;-)

    My local store is running a 0.47/lb promo price with 25.00 in additional purchases. You could get a good size turkey for 4.59 at that price. I plan on hitting the store tomorrow for mine.

    Our local liquor store did turkey bowling a couple weeks ago, but we missed it since DH had to work. Too bad - looked like it was a lot of fun!

    It's interesting to see the prices. One of our stores has frozen turkeys for 39c a pound. DH announced last night he doesn't want turkey and I asked if he was sure, since if I didn't buy it now it wouldn't thaw in time.
    I'll be getting potatoes for 1.99 for 10#, eggs for 97c a dozen, and celery for 59c a bunch, so that's quite different from your prices, although probably roughly the same end result.

    Thanks for letting me know about prices. I'll have to rethink the Butterball this year. That's a huge savings!

    My turkey was .27 cents a pound with a $25.00 purchase. DH didn't care for the salt water injection which tenderized it, but it'll be good for casseroles. I like the sides the best in this kind of meal.

    Our butterball was 63 cents a pound with a $50.00 purchase. We stocked up on some canned beans (handy to have on hand) to push us over the $50.00.
