I feel pretty accomplished with this latest shopping trip! I was able to buy pretty much all the non-expiring food items for Thanksgiving, including a 14-pound turkey for only $8.00. Aldi had some incredible deals going on; a lot of things were marked down, including things I was going to buy anyway like zucchini and apples. The cranberries were a bonus at 50 cents each. I’m attempting to make my own cranberry sauce, so I just stuck them in the freezer until it’s time to use them!

I’m also aware that I bought two more cans of pumpkin… these two, at least, are going towards the pumpkin pies next week. I think I’m up to 6 or 7 cans of pumpkin in my pantry now, but I want more. At 79-89 cents a can, I won’t get a better deal any other time of the year, so I might as well stock up for when I want to make pancakes or muffins! Here’s what else I bought this week:

I have to ask for your help with something... I use Ibotta now and LOVE IT. I find myself buying eggs like crazy because it's an easy rebate. Do you have any suggestions on how to use them in not to obvious ways?

Good question! My favorites are egg casseroles, egg burritos, hard-boiled eggs... those are pretty obvious though. Making egg salad with avocado instead of mayo is pretty good, too!
