Kroger and Publix Trips 4/24/09

Kroger has some great deals this week on kid food. With summer camp looming in the near future, I stocked up on kid drinks and goldfish for lunches. I spent more than I had planned but Kroger had some Rubbermaid water bottles and a really neat bread holder both 60% off. I also found four ball jars on sale 60% off. I have been toying with the idea of trying my hand at canning something. Hopefully I won't blow anything up! I'm looking for a good book if anyone has some suggestions.

Here's what I purchased:

Hello, I really love your blog! I live in Smyrna so your deals really apply to me. I love to can (although pressure canning freaks me out so I depend on my Aunt to help me with that) and I have the book Ball Blue Canning Book. It looks like there may be a newer version than what I have. It has a lot of great information and receipes.
Again, thanks for your blog! Love it!

I would LOVE to find those Ball jars on clearance! I make a lot of jam and jars are the biggest expense. I will check at my Kroger tomorrow! Thanks!

Oh, and I second the vote on the Ball Blue Canning Book. It is great!
