Hittin' the Spice Jackpot at Dollar General.....

I ran to town this morning to run a few errands, and needed to stop at the Dollar General and pick up some potatoes and mushrooms. A few days ago while watching Semi Homemade with Sandra Lee, she made a recipe for Crockpot Meatloaf that looked absolutely wonderul. All I needed to make it was potatoes and mushrooms. Well, first off when I walked into the produce section, I knew I had lucked up! They had beautiful snow white button mushrooms on sale for $1 for an 8 ounce carton....good deal. Then I went to get my potatoes, and they had an even better sale on them! The Dole 5 pound bags of Russett potatoes were also just $1 a!! I put two of each in my cart and then decided I would browse around and see what deals I could find .........

........then my luck got even better. They had a section that said clearance last chance where they had several baking items and spices marked down. They had 12 ounce bottles of Sunflower oil marked down to .25 cents, McCormick lemon extract, almond extract, whole peppercorns, and large bottles of parsley flakes....all marked down to .25 cents!!!!

I got 4 each of the extracts, 5 bottles of oil, the last 2 peppercorns, and 2 parsley flakes.

So, in the end, I got everything in both pictures for $8.25 before tax, I though that was pretty darn good! I am all set for holiday baking with all the oil and extracts I got, and I am really proud that I got all of it without using a single coupon! Who would've thought it?

Have a great weekend everyone, and look for those deals in the clearance aisle when you go never know what great deals you will find!!
