    The Pepperidge Farm whole grain breads are also on sale BOGO this week, instead of $4.29, they're $2.14. The Honey Wheat one is really good ;)

  • bhorlick Mar 8, 2012

    I want to "buy" more of those $1.50 SmartSource coupons. Is there a clipper service you would recommend? Or, if anyone wants to trade for some, I'd be up for that.
