28 cans of French's French Fried Onions
48 packs of Act II Popcorn
2 Turkeys
2 Packs of Baking Nuts
1 Cherry Pie
1 Can of Coffee
3 Cans of Beef Stew
2 Cans of Chili
36 Pack of Corn Muffin Mix
3 - 24 Packs of Charmin
6 Always Pantyliners
1 String of Christmas Lights

Well, actually, if I get all my rebate checks, I made a $8.62 profit not including the stamps. It was a good month for me! (I think I got 6 magazines in all)

a 20 lb turkey (yay)
a bunch of milled cedar (yay - we're in desperate need of bookcases)
three chickens
6 eggs
a little bit of spinning wool
a carder
a picker
a big bag of mohair (okay, the last three items I've had topay the shipping for, but otherwise it was free)
5 balls of sock yarn (90% wool)
a jug of cranberry juice
5 pounds of a friends beef
a free accupressure coupon from a friend

I'd say, if I included gifts too, I've made out very well this month.
