Bargains

I last posted on Nov. 26 at about 1:30 am. It is now Dec. 24, about 1:30 am. It has been a long time! I have been ill with sinus and ear and lung problems. There was much scrambling and searching for my rescue inhaler around here.

This is not my laptop and is difficult to type on! The guy who is going to put in a new power port lent it to me. Yay! He is a very nice young man, twenty-one-years old.

For the last month milk has cost me $.99/gal. I bought enough to last me several weeks until Aldi put it on sale again. I have a gallon now, but will buy two more gallons by Tuesday before the ad ends.

Kraft cheeses were 3 for $5, so I bought 6 8-oz packages of chunk Cheddar Medium cheese for $1.67 each. I still have most of the bags of Five Cheese Italian, so I only bought chunks.

Land O Lakes Butter was 2 1-lb packages for $3. Six pounds of butter reside in my refrigerator. It seems dairy products were the big sale items.

Turkey, bone-in breasts are $1.38/lb. Since my freezer is full, I can only buy what I can thaw and cook. Oh, well! I am not quite ready to start canning meat since I am still weak.

There were other bargains, but those are the best or, at least, the most recent and most memorable.

 I need to sleep since my left eye hurt me all night long last night, so I got three hours sleep. The night before, I had a nightmare, totally horrendous, and only got three hours sleep that night. I napped about an hour each evening, but the sleep deficit still remains.

Miracle on 34th Street is on, not the one with Natalie Woods and Maureen O'Hara.. McDonald Carey is in this version.

  1. Hi Linda! Merry Christmas, I wondered where you were and hope you are feeling much better. I am up early as usual and will be baking my white chocolate cheesecake soon and then heading EARLY for WalMart. My sis is hosting tonight after church and tomorrow I'll have the gang here for prime rib. I'm debating on whether to make homemade rolls or just buy some. I'm not a bread eater at all but everyone else will want it with their dinner. It's been really nice weather here so no complaints from me. I hope you have holiday plans.

    1. Nan,
      Merry Christmas! Buy the rolls...lol. I have no plans, although I have an invitation in Birmingham. I just don't want to go because of a sharp tongue that will be present! When there is only one other present, her "wit" is hard to avoid. I still don't feel well. I have been battling with the weather because it is either too cold in the house or overheated. It sounds like your plans are full of food! No plans.
