Local Labor Day Sales Not to Miss

August 29, 2008 at 12:00 pm 4 comments

Wal*Mart has cantaloupes in the front of this store for $.50.  They are very good.  Not so strong to sting your mouth, but enough flavor to go “Mmmm”.  Also, good looking hot-dogs for $1.00 a pack, and by that, I mean, that are not weird pink or anything.  I bought the 1.50 pack on sale because I didn’t need them in bulk and it somehow made me feel better to see “Oscar Mayer”…why…there is no logical reason.  It’s a hot dog.

There were some firefighters double checking the price, blocking the whole hot dog aisle.  I told them this.  They parted waters and I got my dogs.  On later reflection, that fire fighters are buying hot dogs in bulk, while in their irredescent jackets?  Should that concern me? The visual is interesting. I thought they were firefighters anyway.  I didn’t look that close.  Who knows what they were, truth be told.

But, back to the point:

Kroger’s coupons you get when you check out (the ones that print at the register)?  I got one this week for $15.00 off my next $20.00 shopping order. That’s a big cuopon to miss, so keep an eye out.

The local Op. Center has stuff in their freezer you can buy…meats that were close to their sell date that they froze and are selling.  I bought a Turkey breast half off, and they have frozen bacon. I wish I could tell you the price, but I forgot to look.  I’m sure it was good.  They also have Pepperidge Farm Croutons for $.50, and “Curves” cereal for $1 a box.  I haven’t tried the cereal yet, but that’s a good way to try it.  It had fun stuff on the box to read, and by my kid’s estimation, that totally makes the cereal.  Also, Gardentto’s Italian Cheese Blend Snack Mix for $.79…Mmmmm. Good way to try it, and the daughter and I LOVED it.

I also found some great personal stuff there that tickled me pink, but that’s not worth the detailed mention here.

Those are all my great deals…got any you want to share this week?

    So…where do you get the $15 preprinted coupon? Is this a “regional” thing that we Tennesseans can’t partake of or is it online? I’m headed to Kroger in about 1 hour!! 🙂

    Love you,

    Unfortunately, I’ve not had time to shop for deals… or to do much else for that matter. Glad you’re being so productive, though! Gotta love a good deal!

    kind of concerns me too about the firefighters buying hotdogs, i wonder if they went to tractor supply comp. for the sale on the wiener roaster tines- ha! i passed a yard sale this morning and noticed a little tikes work bench. on my way back through i stopped and looked at it. they wanted 10 dollars for it. it came with only two tools, but i offered five dollars for it and got it for little man. aunt vivian gave us some work bench fischer price tools a few weeks back so now he has everything he needs to play handy man with when he starts to walk.

    Picked up a cantaloupe myself this morning. My DA was there yesterday when they marked them down, the produce guy said they were close to spoiling. Mine sure didn’t taste spoiled.

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)

"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
