Money-saving tips for Thanksgiving

Here are a couple of tips to save money this Thanksgiving.

When you’re chopping celery for your stuffing, save the celery stems and leaves, and use them when making stock with your turkey carcass. They have all the same flavor and are going to be strained out anyway.

Also, when you are peeling onions for your various dishes save the onion skins and use those in your stock as well. The onion skins add color to your stock.

Check out our previous post about poultry seasoning, (,) and our other post about food substitutions (

This last tip would have been more useful several months ago, what I do is save the bread crusts that my husband and boys don’t eat. I put them in a bag in the freezer and use them for the croutons for my stuffing. Thanksgiving morning, I dice them up, and toast them in the oven.

Harris Teeter Super Doubles Trip, my first day

I finally got around to getting to Harris Teeter Thursday night. That’s four pizzas, two packages of chicken nuggets and multiples of cereal, desserts, salad dressings and more.

For just over $22, I got:

Harris Teeter e-Vic deals for 02/11/11 – 02/15/11

I’m happy to see that the water is on sale. I know paying for bottled water isn’t frugal, but I love to have a case of water in my trunk while I’m running errands, so I’ll definitely be stopping by Harris Teeter to grab a case at this price. (Will probably get 4, one for me and each of the men in the house… I’m trying to encourage them to save money and drink more water, too!) Plus, I need to stop by Harris Teeter and get the ground chuck from last week, I got a rain check since they were out.

If you find this useful, please let me know. I know I *could* print out the email, but this is a greener solution, IMO.

Harris Teeter Super Doubles Matchups – Aug 11-17, 2010

While I’m personally disappointed that we didn’t get triples, I am happy that we have a little something extra. I was expecting the couponing even to be the last week of July since that had been Harris Teeter’s pattern for a while. Nothing too extraordinary, IMO. But enough deals to make it worthwhile to head out.

The eVIC special is worth grabbing: Buy a combination of 3 Peter Pan Peanut butters and Welch’s jelly to get a special price of .97 each, use the coupons (see list) and get them all for free.

I looked up all the coupons in the Smart Source inserts, but can’t verify the RedPlum Qs since I don’t get them.

In any case, here’s the link to the spreadsheet with the Harris Teeter Super Double Matchups for August 2010. Hope to see my couponing buddies over the next few days.

Dana over at The Coupon Challenge has finished her Harris Teeter Super Doubles Matchups. Thanks, Dana! I’ve been buried in work and haven’t had a time to get down to business with the list.

Harris Teeter Brags 4/28

I was in and out pretty quick because I had a client meeting this morning. I did well (forgot to get eggs, though!). They have some good sale-priced items (no coupons) that I’ll go back for later today or tomorrow.

Anyway, here is what I got for $4.55. That’s down from $38.

$4.55 buys a lot during triple coupons at Harris Teeter

Another deal for Harris Teeter Triples

I’m updating the master list for Harris Teeter Triples Matchups, but I’d set this aside yesterday and just now looked it up. My bad! That Q was from the insert my sister sent me from California.

Nabisco Planters Big Nut-Rition Bars – Energy on sale for $2.50. Coupon from 2/21 SS for .75/1 makes these only 25¢ a box. Only available if your ordered Qs online.

Harris Teeter Triples – Matchups for 4/28-5/4

Sorry this is so late!

I checked everything except the RedPlum (since I don’t get those). Glad I checked at least 1/3 of the items gleaned from other sites had the wrong prices.

A few notes: where I have ## in the product description, I have a sale price listed, not sure which ones will still be around tomorrow, so I wanted to note it. I tried out and printed most of the IPs. Some of them only come up with certain zip codes. (Mostly I deleted the ones where I couldn’t identify a zip that would bring up the Q.)

Lots of freebies, and plenty of cheap groceries.

Please post errors and items I’ve missed in the comments section and I’ll make the necessary changes since we have a whole week of triples.

(Very excited that HT decided to do it again so soon!)
