    Kathy, this is belated, but I just wanted to say I'm so sorry about your Mom, and I know what getting those phone calls are like. I got one a few years ago and it was the most powerless feeling being so far away. Sending good thoughts that she is okay.

    Thanks Faye, she had an mri last night. She has been having dizzy spells and her doctor wants to know if her cancer has returned. She was diagnosed with brain cancer nearly 2 years ago. Hopefully it's just something minor. Thanks for the prayers.

    Food Lion:

    10 My Essentials Burritos for 3.30, get 2.50 OYNO

    10 ME yogurts 4.80 - 2.50 - .50 from kiosk = 1.80 for 10 yogurts + I got another 2.50 OYNO.

    This is just like last year, but the prices are a little higher :(

    shelleycole...I don't know of any specific deals this week, but there was a $3 off 42 count in 8/5 SS (also a printable on with sign up)and if you have a Rite Aid or CVS %off coupon, that's how I buy items like these that don't go on sale very often.

    I was told today that my son needs to start taking prevacid daily. This is not something I've bought before, does anyone know where I could find the best deal on these this week. I need to get him started asap. Thanks!

    Faye -- I had my parent class tonight and recommended your blog & workshops highly :) Hopefully you will get some more business out of it. You have helped me and my family so much!

    I just chose to cash out my Saving star savings into my bank account...has anyone else done this? If you had, did you have any problems with your back account being hacked into since you had type in your bank account number? I hope everything will be safe...I figured Saving Star would be safe but now I'm having second thoughts

    Kathy, I am so sorry to hear about your mom's fall. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

    Here is an article about how to get a reduced emergency fare including phone numbers to call to request reduced rate:

    Here's another one with some similar info:

    It looks like US Airways has a number of flights in the $350 range to Newark (not sure which city you will be flying into). Many of those flights only have a few seats left for a Friday departure.

    Good luck and travel safe!
