Tom Thumb Thanksgiving Deals (DFW) through 11/26


I haven’t blogged about my shopping trips to Tom Thumb (a Safeway store) in a while because I have been stocking up at Kroger mega sales and haven’t had time to hit multiple grocery stores like I used to.

Over the last few weeks, I have received email from individuals representing Safeway/Tom Thumb. They wanted to let me know about Tom Thumb’s new lower prices and have offered me gift cards to see how far I can stretch my grocery budget.

I haven’t time to do a major shopping trip to Tom Thumb yet, so I cannot share how I did, but I plan to do it soon. I have, however, stopped in Tom Tom Thumb on a few occasions to pick up a couple of things on each stop.

The latest trip was to purchase Kid Cuisine frozen dinners for my daughter. Tom Thumb has always had the highest price for this item of all the stores where I shop, but I noticed the product had a sale tag that stated if I bought three in one transaction, I could get them for $1.99 each. Since I had a $1.00/1 Shortcuts.com coupon loaded on my Tom Thumb card, I was able to get them for less than what they cost at Target or Kroger.

This got my attention, and I plan to revisit Tom Thumb more regularly over the next few weeks, and I will share what I discover.

While at Tom Thumb to get the Kid Cuisine, I spotted brochures about their 2-hour turkey. I don’t cook whole turkeys because it seems so overwhelming to me, but two hours sounds do-able.

In addition to the 2-hour turkey information, Tom Thumb’s site offers a Thanksgiving meal planning guide, decorating ideas, tips for how to use the leftovers.

If you’re like me and wait until the last minute to get the items together for a meal, or if you find you’re short a few items, here are the best deals I see at Tom Thumb for Thanksgiving meal-related items (good through 11/26):

    Caroline I says:

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    I love pineapple, so it may not be traditional, but I’m having some today LOL!

    Thank you for posting all this. It definitely helped me with my Tom Thumb shopping yesterday evening. I’ll be looking at their leftovers tips tomorrow! LOL!
