    FYI -

    I walked into Lowe's Foods last night and stumbled into a deal. Tombstone Pizzas were 3/$9.99 with the Lowe's Card.

    Enjoy!

    beadhive, I just purchased a spiral sliced ham a few weeks ago for .99/lb. at Food Lion. I used to order honey baked ham for all holidays, but this past year I went the cheaper route and my family loved it! I do recommend making your own glaze instead of using the pack that comes with the ham(my mom always told me to do so, and moms know best!).

  • jlamick86 Mar 22, 2012

    Kroger has Smart Balance milk on sale for $2.49, making it $.99/half gallon after the $1.50/1 coupon.

  • beadhive Mar 22, 2012

    What is a good price for spiral cut ham? I'm trying to decide if the Aldi price is good or if there will be better sales before Easter.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Mar 22, 2012

    Thanks for sharing the additional deals everyone! Oh, how I wish we had an Aldi close to me in Johnston County.......

  • glorydaysphoto Mar 22, 2012

    Food Lion has Hillshire Farms 'Gourmet Selections' Sausage on sale for 2 for $5.00. There is a q for $1.00 off each (Save the $1.00 each on the package to use until you use it before expires in AUGUST!)rfrom the N&O a few weeks back = 2 for $3.00. THEN the scanner machine at the front of the store had a $2.00 off your meat purchase coupon. Made these $2 for a $1.00! :)
