    If you still have the $3 off any Bic disposable razors, they are $3.09 at Kroger making them 9 cents for one package of Bic Silky Touch. Also, Kroger has the MetRX and Big 100 bars on sale for 3 for $5. With the recent $2 off 2 coupon, it makes them 67 cents each.
    Also, Kroger has some great prices on Brown Rice flour and potato starch flour for the gluten free diet people (under $3!) =)
