    obv88, they are on sale right now for 2/$3 and the tag says the sale will end on 2/14. Check the HT website after 3 pm to see if the price will still be good. I bought mine this weekend, but the supplies were VERY low. The HT by my house was empty, but luckily, the one near my friend's place had them.

    Bklyn - so glad to hear it went well for you at LF SD! It's been hit and miss for folks, as you have seen so I am happy yours was a good experience. I had a good shopping trip at the LF in Cary on Tryon as well. Very very nice folks and they took my CVS ECB's as competitors coupons. And they had the Muellers whole wheat pasta!

    Steph - that was great of them to do - sound slike excellent customer service from BB&B.

    Thanks for sharing your experience watchhillgirl! It sounds like you and your husband have a great system worked out! And I agree - I wish I had started couponing earlier as well - like as soon as I finished high school!

    Just wanted to share my 1st LF SD experience. I was a little hesitant to go after seeing some of the comments, but since it is right up the street I figured...why not? It was awesome! They had plenty of stuff on the shelves! They had a bunch of frozen food the Bertolli Soup Meals. I have been wanting to try them, but they are a bit pricey for me. Well, they were marked down to $4.00 and let me use $1.00 coupon that doubled! Also many Healthy choice markdowns to $ $.70each for 2 w/ $1.00/2 coupon that they doubled. Hmmm...let's see...what else? I picked up some Chinet travel coffee cups for .50, Seattle's Best coffee is on sale for $6.99 and my $1.50 doubled...not too bad. Butterball deli meat is on sale for $2.99 and there is a .55/1 coupon out there. It was a nice, smooth, uneventful trip!

    Freebie: several weeks ago in one of the Sunday paper inserts (sorry I can't remember when or which one :( ) was a $3 off Iams cat or dog food. Target has a trial size bag of cat food (not sure about dog) for $3, and since the coupon doesn't exclude this size, the coupon makes it free! The bag is actually a decent size, not too small like you may think! This would make a great donation item for our furry friends if not needed for your own pet!

    (oops missed the end of the it) I only wished I had known about coupons and how you could save so much money when I was a single parent with two children. But I have shown them how to do it now and they are both couponers too. Thank you again! I never pay full price for anything!

    Faye and Nancy,
    I just wanted to say thank you for all that you do! My husband does all of the cooking and used to do most of the shopping (I work full time and am also in Grad school). I started the couponing to try and save some money after reading the blog (I was a lurker for a while). The first super doubles at HT we went to was about a year ago. HT is out of town for us, and my husband thought it was not going to yield anything and poo pooed the idea. When we came out of the store with a trunk full (I think it was about $120 worth for only about $25) he was hooked. Now he writes the list of what what we need and I still clip the coupons and organize. He loves going shopping with me when we get the deals. I just looked at the freezer and it is pretty full, which is pretty exciting. We cooked a ham today (paid about $5.00 at Christmas), with other items that we got for free or almost for free. It is such a nice feeling to know all of the money that we save. I only wish I ha

    Thanks Lwillis! I ordered mine! I love PG coupons!

    @ littany- do you know if the Nivea chapstick will still be on sale at HT on Wednesday? I'm going for the SD's (of course) but I probably won't go until then. :)

    Anyone know of a good price for decaf coffee?
