    Thank you Faye :)

    Thanks for the additional deals, ddalmas and flying!

    corbin - this is how I print my e-Vic ZVR coupons:

    From the Wednesday or Friday e-mail HT sends to me, I click on e-coupons. I think load all the coupons I want to to my card. Then I click to see the weekly deals list. Then I click on at least one deal to add to my cart to create a shoppign list. Then I click Print List and the ZVR e-Vic coupons will show up at the bottom of the list. You can have it e-mailed to you, print it out or both.

    You can also access your e-Vic coupons through harristeeter.com and log into your account.

    Hope that helps. I just added new ones last night and used the Quaker one today.

    At LF in Brier Creek last night I was not able to find the Whole Fruit Smoothies listed on this week's LF deals post, but while looking for them I did find Dole Smoothie Shakers marked as $2.29 BOGO = $1.15 and used a .65/2 printable (SmartSource?) so got 2/$1. Easy breakfast starter!

    Also, the new Oscar Meyer Selects bacon was $6.69 (yikes!) but BOGO = $3.34 - .55 MQ = $2.24. This kind is nitrate free and while I shudder at paying $6.69 for a pkg, no matter how much healthier it is supposed to be, $2.24 was fine with me!

    Eggs are 1.19 dozen at Aldi. At the Louisburg location, all the good deals are picked clean except the iceberg lettuce. They did have a few .69/lb whole chickens left :)
