    Not sure if anyone else has had this problem, but I refuse to buy Sara Lee Bread no matter how cheap it is. It just goes stale way too fast. I've tried many times and have finally given up on that brand.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Apr 25, 2013

    Thanks for the heads up on the Davidson's egg deal, spalding! I just added it including the link to the list above. Not sure if there are any more prints available on the coupon, though. Hopefully it is still available.

    Thanks splucker for the Kroger deal!

    Ddalmas - that's too bad. They were $1.19 at the Fuquay Aldi this morning.

  • scoutmomof2 Apr 25, 2013

    Spaulding,

    Thank you a bunch for the heads up on the egg coupon, I need some right now.

  • scoutmomof2 Apr 25, 2013

    sunandsea,

    They are printables from coupons.com, the smartshopper link above and other places. I usually just look up all the items on my grocery list at hotcouponworld.com coupon database and print them out from there. You can access that coupon from there right now, I just checked.

  • sunandsea Apr 25, 2013

    what are brick coupons?

  • splucker Apr 25, 2013

    Just wanted to give a heads up on the Turkey Hill ice cream deal. Kroger has the plain chocolate and vanilla All Natural on sale for $2.50 - $1 coupon= $1.50 for those classics flavors :)

  • Dr D Apr 25, 2013

    spaldingcoupon: Thanks! The Aldi in Durham now has their eggs at $1.59/dozen - big price increase recently.

  • TJ84 Apr 25, 2013
