    I went yesterday and was able to use some coupons before today. I scored some free Colgate and a few other free or "cheap" items. I will continue to get their organic milk and look through they're clearance items. I'll certainly spend less money than I have in the past.

    I noticed the signs about stopping doubling coupons when I went yesterday to take advantage of the Crest toothpaste deal. Between stopping doubling and ending their rewards program at the start of this year I think they are pretty much losing my business! Not to mention I never really buy produce there as the quality isn't very good. I always manage to find moldy or old produce on the shelves.
