According to my register tape I saved $18 at the grocery store yesterday.  I try to only get stuff on sale and hopefully have a matching coupon.  My best deal was a coupon for a free 4 roll package of Charmin.  Its normal price was $8 something but was on sale for $6.49.  This was the super huge rolls but only 4 in the pack so my coupon was good.  I've had the coupon for years and it was tucked away in my coupon wallet out of sight.  Fortunately it had no expiration or maximum price on it.  Lucky me.

Since I have two freezers full of food right now I'm working on getting at least one empty.  Haven't bought much of anything at the grocery store in while, especially meat.

I will have to swing by Walmart and see if the butter in my area is the same price. 
I have plenty of flour and plenty of sugar.  I do like to make sure I have butter in the freezer just in case a baking urge hits. 

When ever I go into a grocery store or Sam's club the first thing I look for are close out corners or sections in the meat and dairy department.  I have picked up milk 50% off because it has a short shelf life.  Great way to get meat and produce at greatly reduced prices as well.  I am flexible enough that I can adjust my daily or weekly menu plans to accommodate any "treasures" I have found. 
But some of these items end up in the freezer and that is why once in a while I decide to "live off the freezer or pantry" .

Pretty sure most large grocery stores have the turkey down pretty low but at most you have to purchase $30.00, 40.00, 50.00 more in groceries to get the lowest price.  I can't tell you when the last time I purchased that much at one of the stores that are using the turkey as a loss leader.  So is it worth it to pay more for all the rest of the stuff that I might want to get or do I pay less for all the staples and pay a bit more for a turkey.  
After all even at $. 99 that is pretty inexpensive for meat. Most of the time chicken is more than that. 
I buy the dried bread stuffing mix at an outlet store, after all how stale can stale dry bread get?
I buy a lot of things at Aldi's and they are much less than most of the stores.  I buy on sale so I have a stock of most of the things that I will use for Thanksgiving.  And with just 2 of us it won't be much of a big deal.

Aldi's has Ocean Spray bags of cranberries for the unheard of price of 79¢.  I picked up 6 bags.  They freeze great.  Hy-Vee had some great specials----5# flour 88¢, 4# sugar 99¢, canned corn or green beans 29¢, 5# potatoes 69¢, cream cheese 69¢.  Of course there were limits, like 1 flour, sugar, 2 cream cheese and 6 cans of veggies.
