Found a deal? 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 hope you all have a wonderful day. My day/week just got very interesting.

This morning, the folks who will be installing our new kitchen countertops are tearing out the old countertops and kitchen sink.  When we moved into this house a year ago, we knew there were structural issues with the countertops and sink and we saved up enough over the last year to replace them and tile the backsplash. 

The removal folks are here a week earlier than expected (which is actually very impressive), so obviously my meal plan has changed!  For at least a week we will not have a kitchen sink, use of the dishwasher and most of our countertops.  There will be a lot of sandwiches and easy clean-up meals for the next week. But - at the end of it all, we will have shiny new countertops and we won't have to worry about the sink falling through the old counter!

    Yes ma'am Faye... did that P&G deal only last as long as the Food Lion sale or is it an ongoing Deal?? Where/how would I find out the dates of the deal

    Rass - regarding the P&G rebate -

    The deal you were asking about is from Food Lion last week. Here is the info I had in the ad match-ups on the blog:

    "P&G promo: Save $5 instantly when you purchase $15 worth of participating P&G products with your MVP card, in a single transaction. Some of the products correspond with the coupons from the 4/29 PG insert, but nothing is really grabbing me as a great deal."

    There is also a $15 mail in rebate when you buy $50 in participating beauty products. It ended in April but you can still send in receipts through May.

    Hope that helps!
