Tuesday's bargains

 I did a little shopping after the Thanksgiving lunch since I was in town and had no grandchildren in tow.

One grocery store had Red Gold tomatoes very cheap.  You had to buy exactly 10 and they took $5.00 off the sale prices.  Today was the third trip I've made to this store during the sale cycle so I ended up with 30 low cost containers of tomato products.  
 The 5 pounds of flour was 99 cents- limit one
 salsa was 69 cents a jar
tomatoes and green chilis - just like Rotel brand but even better in my opinion- 29 cents.  

I would of liked to get a lot more at those low prices but with the limits, 
 I am happy with what we could purchase.  




Then I stopped at my favorite thrift store. 
 Last week,  I found little baby pants for my youngest grandson,  
a Dress Barn ultrasuede skirt for me and 
some toys for the oldest grandson.  
This week,  I found  a very cute Gymboree dress and top and 2 pairs of shoes  
all for our oldest granddaughter-
 it was all $5 plus tax.  

about the shoes - I don't buy used shoes but I will buy new shoes at a thrift store. 
 Some of the shoes there do look worn already but many times, 
 there are very nice ones that have not been worn at all.
