    I usually have good experiences at HT but this past Sunday was full of mishaps at the checkout. 1 - I bought a 12pk of soda ($5.39) and a 12pk of gingerale ($3.09) but the cashier scanned the 12pk of soda twice instead of individually scanning each so I overpaid for the gingerale. 2 - Three of my coupons didn't scan and while only one could have been doubled, the cashier manually entered the three coupons ($1, $1, .50) as one amount of $2.50 therefore bypassing the doubling of the 50 cent coupon. 3 - Some of my ZVRs did not come off! I had my 16m old with me so by the time I noticed it (at home), there was no way I was dragging her back there. Ugh. I guess I need to learn to pay more attention to the cashier doing their job than my daughter in the cart. :-/

    Got a deal at Harris teeter today. Oil of Olay total effects 7-in-1 anti-aging cleanser. Normally $9.55 on sales for $4.77. Had a $2.00 coupon and a $2.00 ZVR! Only .77! Not bad! My face feels so clean! watchhillgirl

    watchhillgirl---can you tell me where you found the oil of olay cleanser on sale? Which harris teeter? This was in a previous share the deals, but figured I may get a quicker response to post it here. The harris teeter I went to today had it at regular price. Thanks!

    I went this morning and it was $9.55 :(

    I LOVE THIS STATEMENT! LOL

    "but for those with kids who refuse to wear non "name brands"" ~~ ncsualum

    My response, should those thoughts ever translate to words and exit my childrens' mouths .... get a job, hippie.

    We also have regular corrections of the words "need" and "want" because I have a zero tolerance policy for such errors. You need food, you want an orange, we have apples, figure it out because I'm not going to the store.

    :P

    Oxymoron, you made me laugh. I am 24, but I was one of those kids, I also babysat for my own funds since I was 12 or 13 (like I would ride the bus to other people houses after school to "work"). Mom and dad would pay the wal-mart price, I'd have to cover anything over that. Made me think realllllly hard though about how much I NEEEEDED that shirt :)

    I am surprised though how many comments I see from parents asking for deals on Uggs, Abercrombie, North-Face, etc. for elementary aged kids. Things that I can only wish I had, now that I have to pay full price for everything ;)

    Hey all, I just got the Kraft Foods 'make it delicious' magazine that I ordered a month ago today. It has some really good coupons. Some are good now and others are good later in the year.

    Okay..have to give a big compliment to the N&O. I posted earlier about only receiving 1 coupon insert this weekend in my 2 papers. Well, when I called today, they said all they could do was credit my account...However, my carrier just called wanting to know more details about what I was missing (her sup. had informed her and was quite concerned) and she is going to give me 2 complete coupon inserts tomorrow morning...Keep in mind I only get papers on Sunday..

    She is going above and beyond and I am thrilled and grateful!
