Share the deals & questions weekend edition

Found a deal this weekend? Here's the place to share it! 

Have a question that doesn't fit into any of the other threads? Here's the place to ask it.

I had such a productive, multi-tasking Friday evening. I had some serious coupon clipping to do so I hunkered down on the bed and watched Guy Fieri's show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on the Food Network. Not only did I get my coupons cut and sorted, but I also got some great ideas for meals during the next couple weeks!

Next week, I think you'll see shrimp salad sandwiches on toasty bolillo rolls (shrimp BOGO at Food Lion and rolls bogo at Lowes Foods through Tuesday) and turkey breast with homemade mushroom dressing (turkey was .99/lb at Target back in November and dressing is using BOGO bread from HT this week).  It's been a while since I have made either dish and seeing them on the show tonight was a great reminder that it is time to enjoy them again. I love homemade dressing and every Thanksgiving I wonder why I don't make it more often than once a year. This is the year I break that cycle!

Have a great weekend everyone!

    etrudeau - I am VERY proud of you!!! It's easy to forget when you're checking out - mentally you're already out the door and on to the next stop on the list of 'things to do today' :)

    One thing that always helps me is to write on my envelope (my grocery list is on it and coupons inside it) under a big RC what I didn't find as I shop. Then I make sure my envelope is still in my hand at checkout. I had to develop that habit or forget to get them.

    And yes, I do still forget sometimes LOL

    So went to FL today and got 4 jars Vlasic pickles, 1 bag Dole salad, and a bag of grapes for $3.00 after double coupons! I really hope that they will make this more than a trial run in NC.

    Thanks chipper4800! I just wanted to make sure it didn't have to be 5 different products so that's exactly what I needed to know!

    If you have 3 original peanut butter coupons, you can use them. They will only take two printed coupons. I bought 1 Wheat Thins, 2 Mac & Cheese and 2 peanut butters.

    $1 off Silk coupon on their FB page

    I apologize if this question is a repeat, but for the HT promo where you buy 5 of the participating items to get the extra savings, do they have to be 5 different items, or could I get multiples of the same, as long as the total is 5? We eat a ton of peanut butter, so I really just wanted to get 3 peanut butter and 2 wheat thins.
