    I've noticed that the P&G ones fluctuate, so some some months are better than others. I love that they gave them out on Sunday instead of waiting until this coming weekend. That way I could see that this months were better for the deodorant we needed and used them before they ran out :)

    Thank you Kathy and Faye! I'm "monitoring" Craigslist as we speak and awaiting one response. In the meantime, there was a coupon in the Sunday paper for a lawn mower tune-up special (49.99)at Northern Tool in Raleigh and the guy said he'll also check the carburetor, so I'll cross my fingers. If a coupon can save my mower, I'll be flibba-de-dibbin' happy :)

    jzka23vzka - try craigslist. Maybe they will have one reasonable.

    Sorry about your mower, jzka! Have you tried Craigslist? There is a local classified section I really like at

    I went to Rite Aid yesterday and got 3 colgate power toothbrushes (used 3 $2 off each one coupons). Paid 14.97 (without tax). I got back $19 in up+. $3 up+ for each toothbrush and $10 up+ for spending $20 on colgate. So it turned out to be a MM!

    Oh Faye! Aren't you glad you didn't know how this day was going to turn out when you woke up? I just saw an o.j. commercial about that...

    My lawnmower died today - 2 years old, already repaired does anyone know where I can get a good one new or used for under $100? Or a repair shop less than $80?

    I was just kidding about going back to bed, nakabi, but thanks for the kind words! I just picked hubby up from the CVS where he was stranded and the car was just towed to the shop my brother-in-law runs in Cary (Black's Tires) so I know it is in good hands. Now...back to our regularly scheduled drug store deal match-ups! :-)

    HappyGirl - I totally agree. I am rather upset that they were run so hard in track. Apparently there are multiple overuse injuries on the team so I don't believe she will be running track again on this team. She ran all winter at the gym with no issues and her peds office said it's overuse. We are hoping that rest will do the trick with no invasive measures required.
