    FL peanut butter is $2.33 so bogo makes them $1.16 each. Can't make it to HT for the Skippy but I bought 4 of these since they are a great price.

    Faye, thanks so much for putting up this list, but I hate that you had to take time away from your family to do so :(

    Hey everyone, there are enough of us old-timers on the blog who can answer pretty much whatever question you might have. Please ask us and let's give Faye a break this weekend! :)

    I was in the Kroger on Six Forks yesterday at lunch and they also had seedless grapes for 0.99.
