Thanksgiving and then some for under $50!

The deals at Scolari's in San Luis are amazing this week! Plus, they've started Double Ad Wednesday so you can take advantage of 2 weeks worth of advertisements in the same shopping trip!! Let me know if anyone visits this store as I am curious to know if I understand their doubling policy correctly. Below are the match ups for this week through Nov 24th...

What I would buy....

  • Nabisco Crackers, $1.99 each, buy 2

Final Price: $2 for both

  • Betty Crocker Cake Mix, $1 each

Use $0.75 off Cake mix and frosting Q fm GM 11/13, doubles but not over cost

  • Ore-Ida Tater Tots, $2.50 each, buy 2

Use $1/1 printable Q fm Wounded Warrior Project, doubles

Final Price $1 for both

Total $43.37

Now, it’s entirely possible that my math is wrong as I’ve never had the pleasure of shopping somewhere that doubles coupons, but...even if they did not double, this shopping list would only cost you...$49.07, so give it a shot and see how it goes!

What I would make with this....

Breakfasts: Cinnamon Rolls (each can makes 8? so this should last a few mornings)

Cranberry Sauce mixed with Yogurt left over fm last shopping trip

Egg sandwiches (eggs and milk are not mentioned above and are assumed, if you don’t have them, but want to stick to the above budget, drop the crackers first.)

Lunches: Turkey sandwiches (bread, turkey, cranberry sauce, cream cheese) served with tater tots

Do you have Bologna left over fm last week?

Dinners: Traditional turkey dinner with stuffing, mashed potatoes, yams, cranberry sauce, crescent rolls, and salad

Leftovers for days!!!

Desserts: Pie with Cool Whip

Cake and frosting (if you don’t have eggs and oil, sub in a can of cola!)

Snacks: Crackers with cream cheese (and cranberries if you like)

See? Things are already looking up in your kitchen! Not only do you get a full Thanksgiving meal, you get to have dessert!! Now, if someone is cooking your T-giving meal elsewhere, that’s great, but I still encourage you to take advantage of this shopping/menu plan. And, as always, bring home leftovers to make these groceries go even farther!
