    Thanks for the bread info mom2two! That's a great price for ww bread with no HFCS!

  • Mom2two Aug 2, 2012

    I just shopped at Aldi today and noticed that now most of their bread has no high fructose corn syrup (85 cents for a white old-fashioned loaf, and 1.27 a loaf for whole wheat and white wheat) Glad to see it. Forgot to check the buns, though. Nature's Own is the only brand I have found that is HFCS-free.

    Nakabi, you can shop without a Sam's membership this weekend, Friday through Sunday. Thanks for the bacon deal, straitlover1965.

  • straitlover1965 Aug 2, 2012

    Nakabi, do you have a Sam's membership? If so, you can buy a big bag of Hormel Bacon Bits already cooked for a little over eight bucks. The bag is supposed to be the equivalent of 5 lbs of bacon, cooked. Might be a better deal!

  • TopCopWife Aug 2, 2012

    nakabi - If you look at the online express, it makes them come to be about $2.40 each. So I think that is probably a decent price. Right now there are no coupons, the last ones expired 07/31/12. Which I used during the Super Doubles and had a raincheck so they were $0.99 each. If you need alot that price beats Wal-mart everyday price.

    On the Borden's cheese deal, I had .75 coupon that I used. Pretty sure it was in the AllYou magazine.

    mary...that's what I've been wondering... walmart's sales paper and the blog Faye did earlier in the week doesn't show any great deals, really. :(

  • marcyalan Aug 2, 2012

    Where are the best 'back to school' deals? Like the 10-cent crayons and 5-cent rulers? I need to find some bargains, hopefully on Friday morning.

  • Packy Aug 2, 2012

    Nakabi, I was wondering the same thing.... I've heard HT will mark up their prices so they don't lose money on these buy 2 deals
