    readingtou - thanks for the milk price!

    straitlover1965 - that is a good deal!

  • straitlover1965 Sep 18, 2015

    RE the Sargent cheese at HT: SavingStar also has the one or Many deal for Sargento, save $4 when you spend $20. Between that and the BOGO, you can get a lot of cheese! :)

    Milk was $2.65 a gallon at Aldi in Wilson yesterday.

    Faye - That is the only way I buy blsl chicken anymore. I like the fact I can tell them how much I want even if it is only 2 or maybe even up to 6 or 8 breast.

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Sep 17, 2015

    ascherer - HT is also selling the chicken at the meat counter or $1.99/lb again. Thanks for sharing the Kroger info!

  • ascherer Sep 17, 2015

    Kroger has been having blsl chicken breast for $1.99 lb. in the meat counter. I'm not sure if HT is doing that any longer.
