Happy Thanksgiving!

Two days until Thanksgiving. What are you thankful for? If you are like me, I am thankful that I still have a job! If you recently was laid off..... my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Whatever your situation, I am sure that you are always thinking of ways to save money. This holiday season I will be gifting alot of baked goodies.

Baking can be expensive, unless you buy ahead and buy items on sale. Starting in November, when I find butter, baking chips (butterscotch, chocolate, white), nuts, pie crust, etc. on sale I stock up.

I also raid my cubbard to find any extra "baking goodies" that need be used up. Of course, I make sure that they are not expired and still have flavor.

Another TIME saving idea is to make your cookie dough ahead of time and freeze it. That way you can take it out of the freezer and have fresh baked cookies in a very short time.

I have already frozen cookie dough for cherry chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies, and molasses cookies.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
