QFC Grocery Basket 12/19

Haley Vandegrift

My great granddaughter, Aslyn Grace, is turning out to be a beauty just like her mom.  She is going to make Christmas very special this year.  Nothing like babies at Christmas time.
Today was filter changing day at the MoneyPenny household.  I change furnace filters with the season, sometimes ignoring summer if I've not used the furnace.  My little timer on the Brita also indicated a new filter is in order.  I washed out the Brita and soaked the filter and headed for the laundry room to tackle the furnace.
This is the first time that I have changed the filter on my new furnace and I got so irritated that my glasses fogged up and the dogs went and hid.  Changing out the filter was nothing but getting that #*^%$# door back on was an exercise in frustration because of this thing:

And there are two of them.  The first one worked like a dream but this one would not latch.  You may ask why not just leave it??  Well, because the furnace does not work without it being latched.  Who knew??  I remember that the guys who installed the furnace seemed to be having trouble getting it to latch but they were always able to do it.  Not me.  I finally figured that it was a little off, so I stuck a screw driver in the edge and lifted and it went in.  I think that this warrants a call to Air-Flo, don't you??

Enough of that.  Let's go grocery shopping.  QFC is still running the Buy 6, Save 6 promotion on General Mills and Kraft products.  Now would be a good time to stock up on GM cereals and there is a coupon ($1/2 12/9/S) to help make it a deal.  The two pound brick of Tillamook cheese in on for $4.99 and this is pretty close to a rock bottom price, so I'm going to buy the limit, which is two.  It doesn't go bad if you don't open it and I'm a big cheese eater.

Here are what I consider to be the standouts this week:

Sonicare Essence Power Toothbrush - $39.99 ($4 coupon 11/18/S)
Gevalia Coffee - $5.99/12 oz ($1.50 coupon 12/9/S) Promotion B6,$6
Challenge Butter - $2.50/ea
QFC Whipping Cream - $2/16oz
Tillamook Cheese - $4.99/2lb
Ribeye Roast - $7.99/lb
Hormel Cure 81 Spiral Ham - $1.79/lb
Anjou Pears - $1.49/lb

Jazz/Junami Apples - $1.99/lb
Organic Carrots - $2.50/bunch
Sweet Potatoes - $1/lb
Lay's Potato Chips - BOGO (think chips & onion soup dip - love it)

Bird Guide Drawing Reminder:

The birds at my feeders are going through the seed like crazy during this cold, windy, snowy weather.  They are so much fun to watch as they jockey for position.  I hope they aren't fighting but it looks like a little push and shove to me.

Don't forget to leave a comment or like on Facebook to get entered into the drawing for the above pictured book.  My neighbor, Tina, is going to pick the winning name on Christmas Eve.
