Comments to Festival of Frugality: Rock Bottom Thanksgiving Grocery Prices

  1. Turkey at 0.49 c/lb!!! There are four, yes four, turkeys in our freezer right now! We’ll be having turkey until Easter, hehe.


    • 49 cents??? Ifi, that’s incredible! Here I thought my 58 cents was a deal. Good for you for filling the freezer. I bought a 20 pound turkey this morning, and I’m thinking of going back for another one…


      • You should! Think about making ground turkey too, if you can. With all this turkey, I’m trying to be creative on how to use it 🙂 Turkey ice cream anyone? lol.


  2. Innovative layout/theme for this edition of the Festival! Thanks for including my submission.
