Verizon worked diligently to get a new router here.
Setting it up was a snap. I called the number on the packing slip and they (it) knew right away that I had a new router and (by default) help was needed setting it up.
Here are me best bargains for the shopping week of Nov. 29.
Publix: New England ground coffee, Buy-One-Get-One, two 9 to 12-ounce bags for $7.69 — $3.85 a bag.
Winn-Dixie: Assorted pork chops, BOGO at two pounds for $3.99 or $2 a pound.
Save-A-Lot: Bone-in, split chicken breast for 99 cents a pound.
Mac’s Meats, Winter Haven, spare ribs, three slabs to a package, for $1.69 a pound.
Green’s Market, Winter Haven, Boneless, skinless chicken breasts at $1.79 a pound.
Harvest Meat Markets, Lakeland and Auburndale, ground beef, family packs, for $1.89 a pound.
It’s a good week to stock up on farm-raised, fresh salmon fillets. Publix and Winn-Dixie both have the fish for $5.99 a pound. Cut in serving sizes, wrap well and freeze. Thaw just what you need for dinner. This is also a good time to try your hand at dilled, salted salmon– gravlax. Check the web for a recipe.
Publix has boneless top sirloin steaks at $4.99 a pound. A few whacks with a mallet or a sprinkle of tenderizer should do wonders for the meat.
With Buy-2, Get-1, you can get a couple of extra 12-packs of Coke products for the holidays.
Extra large, white shrimp (21 to 25 a pound) cost $7.99 a pound — $2 for a serving of 5 or 6.
Green beans, yellow squash and zucchini go for 99 cents a pound.
Boar’s Head Munster cheese is a nice price at $6.99 a pound. I found it salty. Check the price of blocks in the pre-packaged cheese area. You can often get a better price for house brand or even a national brand.
Uncle Ben’s Converted rice works out to 80 cents a pound when you get 2 5-pound bags on BOGO.
Non-meat-eaters get a couple of BOGO bargains with Gardein and Lightlife meat-free entrees on BOGO.
Winn-Dixie has a good price on Navel oranges and Red Delicious apples. The oranges are from California, though. This is Florida, folks. We don’t need to import oranges from another state. Snowballs, maybe. Oranges, NO!
Boneless top-roundsteak goes for $2.85 as a BOGO.
You’ll pay 99 cents a pound for chicken thighs, drumsticks or leg quarters. You can get a whole chicken, including the breast, for 99 cents a pound.
Surimi, that’s krab with a K, has a long shelf life, thanks to all the things that go in it. Get a couple of extra packages for the holidays. Louis Kemp brand is BOGO at $3.49 for 2.
As alternative to California oranges, W-D has 3-pound bags of Florida tangerines for $2.99.
On the last page of the flier, there are assorted toys for girls and boys BOGO at 2 for $14.99. Lots of organizations are gathering toys for children who might be overlooked on Christmas without help from people who are on a first-name basis with Santa.
