Loss Leaders of the Week, "Black Friday" Ads Early and Clean up Cheaply

Weekly update of gas and food prices, plus what is on sale as a loss leader.

Citgo in Glen Head has regular gas posted at $3.69.

The supermarkets this week are beginning to push items for the Thanksgiving table: cake mixes, flour, yams and soda highlight the offerings.

Pathmark has the biggest selection of sale items for beverages and mixers. Also, it should be noted for TIDE users, this brand is on sale at Pathmark, Waldbaums and Stop & Shop and P&G is posting a coupon in Sunday circulars.

TIP OF THE WEEK: BFADS.net is a great source to update early all special opportunities of sale items on the day after Thanksgiving at major retailers. E-mails provide visual opportunities to view sale circulars before the date. 

HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK: The continued good fall weather and the sight of the the tree leaves turning colors.

GRIPE OF THE WEEK: Political sign/billboards that invade the area every political season. Could there be a smattering instead of an onslaught?

I like your "Gripe of the Week," Phil. My neighborhood is covered with them. I bet this could make for a great Question of the Day!
