Triples x 2…we have been out of town so when I went out tonight I did shopping for a friend.

It was CRAZY…of course being the last night the stores were out of most of the REALLY CHEAP OR FREE ITEMS.  That is part of why my total was so high…and I also spent $15 or so on Boston Butt Roast meat.

I didn’t have a lot of freebies tonight– the only things that come to my mind are:

1 Comet bath cleanser

2 Ritz Crackerfulls

2 packs M&M’s

Other stuff:

*Soy Sauce $.35

*Texas Pete Chili Sauce $.30…LARGE BOTTLE!

*Ballpark BEEF hotdogs BOGO @ $4.99 or $2.49 each x 9 – after my various Q I averaged $.94 each

*Country Crock Sticks $.37 each–

butter has gotten so expensive, so I try to cook/bake with margarine was much as possible and save the butter for when it really matters.

*4x Domino Powder Sugar 1lb box@ $1.29 each= $5.16-after Q= $.17 a box

*2x Dixie Crystal $.99 each after Q

*Fiber One Eggo Waffles $1.25 each

*betty Crocker brownie mix $.50

*Duncan Hines brownie mix $.50

*Duncan Hines Muffin Mix $.94 each

*4x Keebler Pie Crust $.75 each

*Johnson & Johnson Baby items $1.50 each

*Band Aids $1.00

*Planter Nutrition $1.25 each

*Cherry Pie filling $2.50 each…not super cheap, but we make lots of cherry cobbler during the summer!

I have never added nuts, but that might be yummy!  Top warm cobbler with cool whip or vanilla ice cream 🙂

This is an easy recipe and the 4 ingredients – crushed pineapple, cherry pie filling, cake mix & margarine can all be bought with Q for really cheap…I think I might average $3.- $3.50 on this dessert depending on how much I spend on the pie filling & pineapple.  It makes a nice large 9×13 pan plenty for sharing with guests!

*Gillette Shave Gel- $.79

I think- my goal for decent shaving cream is less than $1…I can afford to donate to my church’s homeless shelter at that price.
