Every year, I have a hard time remembering what an awesome price for turkey is around Thanksgiving. I purchased a turkey last year and didn't cook him up until last night. I didn't intend to have him sitting in my freezer all year, but waited too long and then didn't want to have the oven on for 4 hours during summer when my AC was working so hard. So, yesterday it was. And we enjoyed the smell and tastes of Thanksgiving.
Last year, I paid 88 cents/lb for this Butterball turkey. I remember purchasing it at Target and choosing the name brand over the less expensive store brand because of some promo, I think I got a discount on stuffing or gravy or something. I don't quite remember.
Last week Frys had their turkeys for 79 cents/lb. I am curious to be reminded again this year what a good price for turkeys is. And maybe they won't be as cheap as years past, who knows. Most of all, I wanted this to record what prices I have seen so in future years, I can compare and know when to snatch them up.
