I hate cleaning pans in which I bake a turkey or any meat. Plus, I often cook ten pounds of chicken breasts or parts to save on the use of electricity. Plus, I can freeze most of the meat and eat from the frozen stash for a long time.
When I was in Kmart, I came across a shelf of marked-down items. Usually, I pay $2.78 for a box of two Reynolds Cooking Bags--Turkey sized. These were marked down to $1.50. Of course, I snagged 10 boxes. I doubt I will use many of these baking bags this summer. Come winter, I will burn right through the 20 bags I have now.
There is a turkey in my freezer over the refrigerator that does need to be cooked to free up some room.
Actually, I probably have a one-year supply at the cost of $0.75/bag. Formerly, I paid $1.39/bag at full price. I saved $12.80. You can figure the percent I paid or saved. Usually, I discover I am out of these and must make a special trip for the one item! Actually, it seems I am always out of the Reynolds Cooking Bags!
Shopping for bargains on my own shelves is great. This makes one more item for which I won't pay full price. If I had had more money, I would have bought the other 10 boxes on the shelf.
Kraft Dressing was marked to $1.70 for a 16 ounce bottle. I had a coupon for $0.75 for two bottles. My dressing cost me $1.70 x 2=$3.40-$0.75=$2.65 for two or $1.33 for each 15 oz bottle. I love a bargain.
