Deals of the Week 12/7/08-12/13/08

Okay, this was a great week for finding deals. I should probably title this my "chocolate and batteries" week. I'll be using most of the chocolate in gifts. Goodness knows I don't need to eat all of it 'cause that's a lot of chocolate even for me. I also stocked up on mixed nuts, one of my favorite snacks and it helps keep me away from the chocolate!
