What!????? No crash and burn this week? I can't believe the markdowns you find in the grocery store. The markdown basket where I shop usually includes discontinued colors of hair dye and packages of Raid, and not much in between. This week, though, they were clearancing the big cans of pumpkin puree for .50 each! Twenty-five cents a pie! I see pumpkin pie in our future. Everything else in the basket was basically non-edible. I also found a gallon of milk with 7 days to go for .99.

Max, the store bakery Portugese rolls were marked down so they count as crash n burn. : ) Awesome deal on pumpkin. Don't forget waffles, pancakes, loaf bread, muffins, cookies.

I usually only use a small can of pumpkin at a time. In the past, when I've gotten a deal on the big cans, I've frozen the other half of the can. I'll probably be doing that this time, too. Works great.
