I Don't Really "do" Black Friday..

Ok, I admit it, though I LOVE a good deal (I mean really LOVE - as in "enough to blog about it" type love,) I can't bring myself to do the early morning or scary crowd that is Black Friday.
That being said, it doesn't seem right to skip over it here at DiD, so I pass the mic to you, Dealers.

Post the Black Friday deals you are most excited about, or other info that your fellow Dealers *should* be getting from me, but aren't in the comments section below.

Meanwhile, I leave you with this link to help you plot and navigate your way through the deals, should you be so inclined. I am sleeping in.

Happy Thanksgiving, Denver!

Sunflower Double Ad Wednesday Preview

Ahhh, Thanksgiving. Groceries' big day to shine.
As always, Sunflower Market is here with fabulous deals to make sure we don't cook our goose when buying our turkey (so-to-speak.)

Last week's ad had some great buys including that cheap-o b/s chicken breast (yes, I know you will have leftover turkey for a while, but stock up for the freezer - you will be happy you did when the turkey is a memory and chicken breast is a rip off.)

And in what is kind of a bummer (no different ad overlapping for new sales) it appears that last week's ad is good through December 2nd. What does this mean? Well, it means you have plenty of time to horde chicken, I guess.

It also means I am pretty much done with this post, eh?

Weekender

It's the weekend. or almost, anyway. I don't know about you, but I am already lost in making plans for it, though it is only Thursday now. Personally, I will be alloting a great deal of time to getting up our Christmas decorations, since I have several gatherings planned at The TreeHouse the week after Thanksgiving. Also, I believe The Hub and I will be checking out Caveau Wine Bar to make use of a GC we recieved. (YAY FREE DATE! )

Meanwhile, around town:

11/20- Thirty-three (and a half) years ago my parents got a real 2 for 1 special when the adoption agency called to tell them to come and meet Dr. Sissy and me, and it has been wacky family perfection ever since. So I am a big fan of celebrating National Adoption Day - and Greenwood Community Church is having a wonderful family-oriented event to mark the occasion this year. Full of activities for the kids, treats, and music, the free event runs from 6:30-8:30 pm. Get event and location info here.

Grocery Circular highlights

A few things very much worth mentioning in the grocery ads this week!


Albertsons:
Follow me here, because I usually don't approve of "if you spend a certain amount" kind of deals, but this one is worth it because of some other good deals available, imo...
$0.35 lb - Honeysuckle Turkeys - if you spend $25.00, limit 1.
$1.77 lb - b/s Chicken Breasts (10 cents more an lb than Sunflower, but if it gets you just to $25.00 for the turkey, it might be worth it.)
$1.49 lb - Assorted Pork Loin Chops
50% off McCormick Spices
$0.77 - PictSweet frozen veggies, 14-16 oz packages (limit 6)
$0.99 lb -Asparagus
$10.00 - for 4 12 packs of Coke products when you buy 4, limit 1 reward per transaction
Also, look for the Buy One Get TWO free coupon for Bar S Bacon on the front of the circular!

King Soopers:
$11.00 - for 4, 12 packs, mix and and match Pepsi, Coke, and 7Up products (when you buy 4)
$3.00 - for 2, Kroger cheeses - bars, shreds, or slices
$0.99 - lb Cooks Shank Portion Hams
$1.00 - for 2, Kroger Broth

Safeway:
eh, I am hard pressed to find anything REALLY exciting.. you tell me if I am wrong.

BTW - all the stores have at least 1 kind of turkey on sale for $0.99 lb, and if you are a Safeway shopper and you do spend 10 bucks there this week, you can get a Safeway brand turkey (up to 16lbs) for $5.88 - if you are going to shop there anyway.

Also, this from the lovely Tena:
"There is a coupon available at Couponsurfer.com for $2 off a butterball turkey. I know some grocery stores in the Denver area (Kings?) are having a sale on them this week."

SF Market Double Ad Wednesday, tipsy ed.

FINE - I admit it.. I have been to Happy Hour. I am NOT sober.
But the show must go on, and Double Ad Wednesday is tomorrow at Sunflower Market, so we must address it, right? Stay with me, kids...

Last week was good - you can review the deals here.

Let's talk this week, because there are some great deals to be found there, and spell-check to save me from totally botching them up...

1st of all, they have come up with a holiday specials ad for Thanksgiving. Find it all here.
Also, if you are starting to think that promising Mother-in-law that you would make the whole dinner, and "don't you worry about a thing" was getting in over your head, they will solve that problem with a complete spread starting at $24.99.. (well, OK that is just for two, so that would be if you promised your sweetie - but $49.99 will save you for a small group.) Check it out in the link above.

Other deals this week:
In Denver check it all out here
$2.99 lb - chuck roast
$1.97 lb - family packs of 85% ground beef (you can find cheaper, but SF Market is great quality!)
$3.00 - for 2 - 5.5 oz packages of blackberries
$0.49 lb - Oranges
$1.00 - 10 Limes Yes, that is 10 for $1.00!
$0.77 lb - Broccoli or Winter Squash
$1.00 - for 2 - Cucumbers
$1.00 - 3 lbs of onions or baking potatoes


What did I miss? Seriously, I've had some cocktails, so tell your fellow Dealers if there are different Deals in your own 'hood or if I have glaring deals missing from the list. Mama has to lay down.

SF Market Double Ad Wednesday Preview

Was it really already a week ago that I was doing my crazy snow dance and not-so-secretly hoping that none of us could shovel out of our parking spaces to even GET to SF Market for Double Ad Wednesday!?
Time flys, Dealers!!

So there was some good stuff last week, which you can peruse here.

This week has plenty worth mentioning too:

$1.77 lb - b/s chicken breasts - we have recently seen them up to 10 cents lower, but this is pretty darn good!
$1.00 - for 5 Rio Red Texas Grapefruit
$1.00 - for 2 Hass Avocados
$0.29 - lb. Yellow Onions
$0.88 - each, bunches of Spinach, or Red or Green Leaf Lettuce, lbs of soft skin squash
$3.00 - for 2, 5 lb bags of Russet Potatoes


Oh well, I guess the sun does feel kind of nice, doesn't it... But I sure did like that snow day!

Come out for a Denver Tradition

This Sunday is the annual Champagne Cascade at the Brown Palace. It is the perfect way to kick off the season (especially if you are like me, and can't wait for Thanksgiving to start your holiday marry-making each year!)
There is no charge to attend and stand with fellow surfs on the upper floors to bask in the glow of the season and watch the bubbly flow.. If you want to cough up 50 bucks you can be on the 2nd floor in the VIP area, with booze and food included (let's face it, I could easily get through 50 bucks worth of booze and food in that time - it isn't even a challenge.. but I digress.)
Check out the details here, and if you can't make it out for the cascade, then stop by The Brown during the holiday season to see it all decked out in holiday glory.
(The only thing I love more is when the Grand Champion Steer from the Stock Show comes to the hotel for high tea.. ahhhh, Denver...)
