Vegan Thanksgiving

I haven't hit the dollar store recently for any good Thanksgiving finds, except for cute leaf-themed cupcake wrappers and toppers for a dollar.

However, I have found deals at Bay area grocery stores that I wanted to share in time for Thanksgiving:

Fresh & Easy (33rd/Clement in SF):
- raw cashews: $5.99 for 16 oz.  Trader Joe's price is about a dollar more.
- tofu always 99c per box
- their fried onion price ($1.49?) may be lower than TJ's ($2.99), too, per a comment on the Post Punk Kitchen site that I haven't yet verified
- graham crackers (no milk, but has honey, so not vegan) $1.99/box (vs. TJ $2.99/box also with honey)
- potatoes 99c for 10 lbs.

Trader Joe's
- Tofurky $9
- Amaretto $6.99
- Frangelico ~$17.99 for 750 mL

Grocery Outlet in Berkeley:
- walnuts 16 oz. for $4.99

4th and Geary Farmer's Market in SF:
- Imagine portobello vegan creamy mushroom soup $3.49 (vs. Rainbow Grocery $3.99)

Foodsco (15th/Folsom in SF):
