Speaking of loss leaders, my grocery store is giving out a free turkey with every flu shot this week.

I was thinking of getting some post-Thanksgiving turkeys, too--and then donating them either to the senior citizens group in town (they usually do a turkey dinner---maybe they're taking it out to shut-ins this year?) or the police department, who gives out boxes of food to particularly needy families at Christmas.

I decided to go to the food store early this morning. They opened at 7am and I got there about 5 minutes later. There were still a few early morning shoppers. I was surprised at how many people were there this early in the morning.

Miracle of miracles! I found a small grouping of Lysol wipes. I only use these when I go out, so I just picked up one. I'm not crazy about them since they just create a lot of waste, but they work for now.

This is a really good idea! There are groups in my area that are donating boxes of free food to families. Just pop the trunk and get a box.
