Shopping the sales (and your pantry) is one of the best ways to save money, even around the Holiday’s! Emily is making a baked brie appetizer for less than $5 this weekend!
I was able to grab two Smucker’s Jellies at Harris Teeter this morning for $.50 each:
Smucker’s Jelly $2.00
$.75 off Smuckers Jelly (printable)
I also noted that President Soft Ripened Cheese Brie is on sale at Farm Fresh for $5.99 this week too:
(2) President Brie $5.99
$3.00 off 2 President Cheese Products (share with 3 friends)
Total: $4.49 each!
If you need some puff pastry, its on sale at Farm Fresh for $4.29 this week too.
Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry $4.29
$1.00 Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets or Shells (Facebook, share with 3 friends)
So, if you happen to have some puff pastry in the freezer like me, you can make a DELICIOUS appetizer for your guests this weekend for about $5! And if you don’t, making this appetizer for less than $9 is still a steal – the brie cheese is usually $10 alone. Yum-o!
