My $1.50 Turkey

Yep.  I'm pretty proud.  First of all, I'm not an extreme coupon girl.  I use coupons because family gives them to me or they pop out of that awesome machine at the Meijer checkout.  I don't feel like I have time to make more of an investment in coupons, but today the stars (and the sales) aligned with my coupons and gave me some great deals!

I had a ton of buy 1, get 1 deals in my cart as well as a few sale/coupon items which made me feel like such a big girl.  But the best of all was my turkey deal.  If you bought $20 in groceries (how can you NOT?), you could get $16 off a 16 lb or greater tom turkey.  Plus, I had a coupon for $3.50 off Meijer food purchases so I got a Meijer brand turkey and a few other Meijer brand items.  Why not?  They're cheaper anyways!  Then I had a $1 off coupon for frozen foods.  Guess what??  Turkeys are frozen!  That counts!  My turkey should have been $22, but 22-16-3.50-1.00= (drumroll, please) $1.50.  My 17 lb. bird will be feeding our family for a LONG time.  We'll make cheesy turkey soup, turkey and dressing casserole, turkey bacon wraps. Oh, deliciousness!

So I'm on a high.  A coupon/deals/money-in-my-pocket high.  I probably won't come off this high until... well, I'm not sure when.  Have a great night.... and run over to Meijer if you still can!
