    I just got back from Food Lion - their milk price has gone down to $3.28, which is an ok non-sale price. It was $3.99 a few weeks ago.

  • scoutmomof2 Oct 4, 2013

    I picked up three more bags at lunch today. $3.31 for all of them, saved $8.03.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Oct 4, 2013

    I will have to look for those coupons. Didn't see them at the HT in Fuquay last night, but I wasn't looking for them since I didn't see your post until after I got home. Thanks again.

  • scoutmomof2 Oct 4, 2013

    It was Cameron Village, I stopped in on the way home.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Oct 3, 2013
