Thanksgiving Week Grocery Trip

It was a good trip :) A little splurging for Thursday (we're staying home), several FREE items, a little gift-buying, and some stocking up :)

I now know why I don't go grocery shopping in the evenings. I'm sure it was probably a little worse since it was 2 days before Thanksgiving Day, but every store was a major zoo! Not to mention they were both stores that I've never been in, so I wasn't familiar with the layout at all. However, I did get most of my to-do list done before I left. Daniel got home before me and per my request, made a very yummy taco-soup for our supper (thus the Doritos purchase - following the menu!).

Did you use the $1 off coupon for the Crockpot Liners? I am asking because I just found them at Taget for ~$1.79 (going on memory) for a 4-count box and got them for ~0.79 each after coupon. I was curious from a price comparison stand point.

I hope you guys have a great Thanksgiving!

Looks like you're doing good! I can't wait to see exactly what crockpot liners are and how they work.
