    ShelleyCole~"Any one know where the best deal is on olive oil right now? I'm almost out and need to find a stock of price."

    "Anyone know who/where AXE deodorant is on sale? My teenage man-child is in need and trust me, you don't want a teenage boy to run out of deodorant! Got coupons but need a sale, too! Thanks!
    BJ's has a gift pack with a ton of stuff in it marked down to $9.90.

    Thank you lwillis and paintbananas for the information. Paintbananas, I also live in Sampson County and I hate that there are no local papers that have coupons and that everything is so far away, so I have to really convince the hubby that something is a good deal to run to Fayetteville. LOL Oh well. I guess that's what you get for living in the sticks. HA HA!

    mwilson, if you live outside of Raleigh, even the N&O is a bit of a toss-up for coupons. I live in Clinton & had several weeks without coupons so I contacted someone. Basically, they give Raleigh/Wake subscribers the coupons first, then put coupons in newspaper boxes, and then subscribers outside their main circulation areas get whatever's left. So even following blogs won't guarantee what you get.

    There are 2 separate swag codes in different blogs on Swag Bucks. They expire at 6:30 EST.

    Nancy & Faye -- when do you typically find the best deals on sunscreen? I started in Sept after peak sun season so wondering when a good time is to stock up or stock up prices . . .

    steph: "OO (Olive Oil...I dont' call it EVOO since I don't think it is appropriate to discuss the virginity of my oils in public :))."

    OOOPS! Olive Oil at HT was 9.99 but I had a $1/1 coupon and got it for 8.99.

    OLIVE OIL: I went to Aldi. 2.99 there for about 17oz if I remember correctly. I got the one at HT for 8.99 for 51oz. It was a slightly better deal.

    I had a problem with some of my coupons not scanning at kroger. i was stocking up on HN Cheerios and some of the coupons would not scan. Go figure. It was some of the .50 ones. Being a good couponer I said fine and she gave them back. She said she could not enter them manually which I know from reading the blog!

    Kroger allowed me to substitute the Kroger brand bacon for the Aberdeen Farms raincheck I had! Excellent!

    Faye, Trend laundry detergent at Lowe's is 3.99 for 170 ounces. I think your buy price is 1.99 or less for 50oz. I've not tried it but I thought of you when I saw it. I stocked up on Sun at 1.77 for 68oz. at Lowes. I used the raincheck and I think the bottles were bigger this time.
