You think Ron gets good deals.....got a 14 LB. turkey for 39 cents a lb at TOPS.Had to buy $15.00 on groc. which I would have anyway.

The bird would have been about $22.00,but with my Tops card was only $6,49.Now beat that you guys.It doesn't matter if we spent

a small fortune over there....I still got a cheap Turkey.LOL :lol:

And I bet you will not waste a gram of it. Turkey Soup on the menu after enjoying a few meals off it, I am sure.

Good deal indeed Pansy.

Family in Chatham go over to Detroit & buy Canadian turkeys for less than half the price @ home. We sure get ripped off here.

I got a box of Kashi cereal priced @ over $5 for free last week with a coupon.

The wood is clear between the knots.

I think that one particular Tops is the greatest of the grocery stores, Pansy. What buys indeed! I presume you went to the one via Lewiston Bridge. Haven't been cross border for ions but I always loved it. Did you stay the 48 hours?

I managed the same coupon Ron, Great buy but haven't cashed it in as yet.

One thing I remember about living on ON, grocery shopping was great! Every store ran their coupons and you could cash as manya s you liked from any store and get the deals. We don't have that here....
