Being thrifty is an honored Irish tradition in my house. The Cheapskate in all of us wants to know we're getting the best deal possible. So here are the top places for you to shop to get the best deal on your corned beef and cabbage this St. Patrick's Day.

Sav-a-Lot 1625 J St. SW Cedar Rapids - Corned Beef Brisket Point Cut is advertised at $2.79 lb.

Hy-Vee  2001 Blairs Ferry Road NE Cedar Rapids - Corned Beef Brisket Point Cut is advertised at $2.48 lb.

Aldi Foods - 1001 50th Street, Marion - Corned Beef Brisket Point Cut is advertised at $2.49 lb.

Fareway 4220 16th Ave. SW Cedar Rapids - Corned Beef Brisket Point Cut is advertised at $1.99 lb.

Also, remember to pick up cabbage, carrots, potatoes and butter. You'll also want to stock up on Guinness Stout, and maybe some Bailey's Irish Creme for your coffee, too.

Oh, and don't forget dessert...but remember, a box of Lucky Charms doesn't count.
