That is a great deal.  A few drops of that simmering on the stove would smell wonderful.  Or heat up some water with a few drops in the microwave, clean it and make it smell great at the same time.

How come I can never find pure Almond extract at those prices?

Ifrequently mention gettingmark downsof50% inourinstore bakery. Almond biscotti ( reg. up to $5.59# are often $1.99#  Last week, hubby, got  raspberry Danish ring for only $2...Ourstoreisvery careful to sell only still good baked goods; but they won't last long.You must either use them up fast or pkg. in airtight containers & freeze for up to a month.Thaw them outcovered at room temp or microwave just enough  to thaw & make slightly warm; ( 10 -60 seconds per serving/We call them" fresh& hot from the oven " We also buy marked downn produce ; though I am aware that they contain less vitamins & minerals than fresh produce.They still have lots of fiber & go a long way to filing  us up on less calories. Our store also sells cans & boxes( dented & torn) at reduced prices. I avoid these for fear of contamination, botulism in cans & who knows what in unsealed boxes . If you trust your store & need to cut back on  your  food costs; this might be  a good way to cut costs.Just realize the possible risks & that your purchase will not last as long as" fresh" merchandise .

The greatest bargains I find are not only watching for the sale items, but also matching them up with coupons and also using the stores coupons linked to their loyality card, so you are saving three times.

I want to shop where Maryann O shops!
At .39 cents a dozen it does not pay to raise chickens! It would cost more than that to feed the chickens to get a dozen eggs.

I know my niece keeps chickens and it's not cheap to feed them.I did find another coupon for Breakstone sour cream $1 off two they are .99 cents each making it 2 pints for .98 cents they are dated for the first week in February.I have four others dated for the end of January but I'm confident I'll use them before that.Boy pecans were $2.99 a half pound that that was at out discount store.Not cheap that's for sure.I pretty much have everything I need at this point.I'm hoping for a sale on Prime Rib but not holding my breath.I have a 7% off my total bill at Giant Eagle so I'm saving it for that.

My trip to Costco yesterday I was thinking about the posts about the eggnog and I wanted to get some.  They had gallons of eggnog for a bit over $5.00 and I figured I would drink a bit, offer for my company tonight and make a pound cake.  Well I about went into shock....the gallons of eggnog that had been over $5.00 were marked down to $1.97 a gallon.  I got 2 gallons.  I figure I could also freeze some for use in baking later.
