    I have never used sliced American cheese to make mac and cheese. Do you just melt the slices on the macaroni?

  • boomer3145 Sep 1, 2010

    Kroger brand individually wrapped sliced cheese is 99 cents for 12 ounces. It is good until 5/11. It comes in 3-4 flavors. Great for mac & cheese.

    Hi purplepat, The Kroger registers do allow you to use an e-coupon and a Manuafcturer's coupon at the same time. During the Buy 8 get $4 back promo a couple weeks ago, I used manufacturer's coupons on all the Nature Valley and Fiber One granola bars and still got the e-coupons I had also loaded from

  • purplepat777 Aug 31, 2010

    Faye, can you tell me something about the Kroger ecoupons? Can I use the ecoupon + the manufacturer's coupon on a single item?

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Aug 31, 2010

    Thanks for the info on the clearance items. And thank you for your kind e-mail, tnpirate!

    there was only one more of the grills yesterday at 5p...there were some citronella candles, lots of pet items and an odd accumulation of items. this is the Kroger at 54 and Fayetteville in Durham.

    Good buy, tnpirate! In case others are interested, did they have any more and which Kroger had the sale? Were there other good summer items on clearance?

  • tnpirate98 Aug 31, 2010

    I got a Hamilton Beach indoor/outdoor electric grill from Kroger was $39, but I got it for $12.50 from their clearance table! I cannot wait to use it on vacation to save money with all of the stuff we have gotten on sale lately!
