Awesome! I’m starting my shopping this evening with some turkeys that are on sale. Then gradually I’ll be adding to the pile of stuff we’ll be doing for the two big meals…

Already have the turkey for 39 cents a pound. Ready for more savings!

THIS is worth sending the hubs out for (you stay home and rest with new baby). Wal-Mart has sweet potatoes for .25/lb. I bought 10 lbs. for $2.50!! Cheaper, fresher, and better looking than the ones at Aldi for .33/lb.

I knew you’d appreciate this, Erin. Hope you’re enjoying motherhood.
