Cent-Saving Saturday: The Canadian Thanksgiving Edition

Cent Saving Saturday

Well…it’s about that time.  I’m actually writing this entry in the wee hours of Friday morning because the cooking blitz (that was supposed to begin last weekend) is going to begin shortly, and I figure I will have no time to write it on Saturday.

The sales at home this week are “meh.”  There are a few things I’m going to purchase, but as this isn’t a major holiday week in the U.S. (other than the very forgotten Columbus Day), I figured I would resurrect my efforts at posting the Canadian specials.


organic gala apples 99 cents/pound

Coke, Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, or 7-Up 2 L $1 each wyb 6

(I also hope to procure the remaining three ingredients–pumpkin pie, carrots, and green onions–at Kroger)


7-Up, Sunkist, Canada Dry 2 L 79 cents with coupon (limit 6)

Jif peanut butter $1.49 with coupon (limit 4)
