I got an 18.84 lb turkey today for $4.14!
Oh yay, baby!
That's a whole stinkin' giant turkey for the price of 2 pounds of hamburger.
And since I don't have to actually cook a turkey this Thanksgiving, I'm going to sock that bird away in my freezer until February, right about the time we start missing all the good food from the holidays and I can whip it out to have one last feast.

Not bad for a holiday full of pies. But when I went over my receipts I realized that I didn't buy any bulk italian seasoning. What I did buy was some bulk split peas at something like $.34 cents a pound but the lady typed in the wrong number and overcharged me by $3.
So guess what I get to do tomorrow?
Would you go back for 3 bucks?
