Fun da-middles cupcake mixes are yummy but normally are expensive. Safeway had them on sale for 99 cents each (normally $3.99 each). I had (5) 75 cent coupons.
With coupons I paid $1.20 for all 5 boxes ~ or 24 cents each. 94% Savings!
Next up...Winco. I love Winco but they are not the greatest store to use coupons at.
I love going there to stock up on items that I don't have coupons for...I buy lots of
fruits and veggies there. However, everytime I try to use a coupon...I usually encounter a problem. Today I used a coupon for $1.00/2 of any King's Hawaiian Rolls. The coupon beeped and the cashier said sorry and threw my coupon away. I nicely asked for my coupon back and to talk to the manager (very nicely requested, I promise.) I try really hard to make sure my coupons are being used appropriately and I could not figure out why this coupon was being rejected. The manager very casually told the cashier to just override and enter the coupon. I do not think they train their
cashiers as fully as they should in terms of coupons...but it won't stop me
from shopping there.
Next up? Cracking crab! I was very lucky to get freshly caught crab from by brother-in-law who has a commercial crabbing boat. My absolutely favorite thing is fresh caught/boiled crab. I got enough to freeze 5 cups worth of crab. It's a messy job...but well worth it!
Such a pretty, pretty little guy!
Work station all set up and ready to go.
No crab meat left on these crab shells.
Pure sweet goodness! Dungeness Crab
And finally...a little holiday cheer:
My favorite youngest daughter decided to create a gingerbread masterpiece! She thoroughly enjoyed creating this masterpiece even though she got a bit short tempered when her mom tried out all the different candies and frostings. I am not sure why she was so upset with me...I was just initiating some quality control techniques!
