The frost was heavy this morning but the sun was shining as I went to throw the pumpkin in the garden. I never carved it for Halloween and saved it for part of the Thanksgiving decorations. It will also help the garden and maybe a deer or two.
I chopped up the rest of the turkey and used it for
I made sure to freeze one of the pies too for later.
I bought sweet potatoes on sale for 39 cents a pound and my daughter bought the turkey for 58 cents a pound for the Thanksgiving dinner. I love sweet potatoes so I made sure I bought enough for awhile. They don't seem to last as long as potatoes though so I have to watch and not buy too many.
Other frugal news:
I'm one of those ones that venture out on Black Friday. Do you? I'm a late starter so I don't stand in line. This year I managed to go out around 8:30 in the morning. The problem with the late start is that some of the stuff might be gone but that's the chance I take. One of the presents I needed was out of stock except for the floor model. I was able to get the floor model for $30 off the black Friday price.
We walked down the block to an estate sale on our block on half off day. I bought a like new bathroom trash can and my husband bought a much needed snow rake for the roof. They (neighbor and my husband) had been using a homemade model that was hard to work with but got the job done. I bet we looked a little funny walking back to the house with our purchases. With some other tools and little things I think we might have spent $35.00. It's great to find things we need for the house (tax free). Half off days vary by the company holding the sale.
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
