    Faye, It was after my comment here that I noticed your separate CheckOut51 post. As usual you were already on it. You do an incredible job of juggling lots of moving parts and promptly posting useful ideas. Thank you so much for your work!!

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Apr 29, 2:15 a.m.

    Em2s - thanks! When I made the original grocery list for the produce, it was last Wednesday when the onions and kiwi were still valid. I'll delete them now. :-)

  • Em2s Apr 28, 7:56 p.m.

    This is such a handy list and makes quick order of deciding where I'm most likely to find the fresh fruits, veggies and meats I need. Thank you!
    P.S. - My CheckOut51 offering no longer has onion or kiwi on it. I do have: carrots, oranges, blueberries, limes, and bell peppers.
