    Straitlover - we used Majestic Marble and Glass on Glenwood Ave at 919-865-2170. Ask for Twila - she was our contact and was great! They did everything from start to finish on the countertop and sink including removal of old countertop and sink. The only thing they can't do is hook up the water line to the sink after the new sink was installed.

    The tile whisperer (who happens to be Twila's husband) grouted the backsplash today and it pulls it all together beautifully. My husband joked this evening that the counters and tile backsplash are now too nice for the rest of the house!

    Hello all. I used to attend the swap in West Cary at the Starbucks on 55/High House. I am working on finding another venue for this swap as it just didn't seem big enough. If you are interested in attending this swap, please email me at ecpressley@nc.rr.com and let me know what days and times work best for you. I will try to plan a time that works best for the majority.

    Once I have more information on a new venue, I'll let everyone know, and let Faye know so she can update the calendar.

    Faye, would you mind posting one more time the ocmpany that did your countertops? Did they also do the installation, or did you have someone else do that? I am wanting to replace the countertop in my master bath, and it will have to be custom because it's long and the sink is at one end. Hoping I can get a granite remnant to save soem money. I had checked at Lowes once time about it, and they wanted an arm and a leg! Thanks!!

    Yay on Kohls then! I shold be able to get a bath towel and a hand towel for very little OOP (on sale this week). Thanks!

    straitlover - Yes Kohl's will let you combine them. I used a $5 off, $10 off and a 20% coupon at the Kohl's in Garner yesterday and got a blouse, bracelet and picture frame for $2.11. One of the things I like most about Kohl's is that they seldom say "no" to their customers.

    the cashier must have done something wrong then tried to hide it by keeping your coupons - my coupons for the same magazine ( one was mine from Sunday and one was from a co-worker) scanned at 2 different Wal-Marts ( one during lunch yesterday and another for a friend this morning).

    Actually I did VERY well at Wal-Mart this morning - with price matching and coupons I save over $43 ( oop was $14- ) and only had to drive 5 miles round-trip .
    BTW, They took my spouse's ink coupons from Staples over the weekend ( price is cheaper at WM too )!

    Kohls is pretty coupon friendly. I know on their website they allow 2 coupon codes; so probably they would take both of those. Doesn't hurt to try.

    Thanks for the info, Faye. I really appreciate it.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Jun 19, 2012

    They should have entered them manually if they weren;t even printables, Kelly. That's ridiculous that they would not take them and then tried to keep them without giving you credit! I am hearing a number of Walmart coupon horror stories this week. If you want to take it to the next level, call corporate or send them an e-mail and ask for the district managers phone number to call and voice your concern.

    Faye, they were "All You" magazine coupons from this Sunday's paper.
