    Just realized I posted on the wrong day! Re Target credit card issue: I thought it was just Target credit cards, but tonight abc news said that any credit card that you used at any Target store from Black Friday until 12/14/13 could have been compromised. This is really scary. I shop at Target all the time. I still cannot get in touch with my Target card, the phone is constantly busy, duh! Now, I'm worried about a few other cards I used there, too.

    watchhillgirl - I am so sorry your son had to have surgery. I hope he is doing well and recovers quickly! Sounds like a standing rib roast is the perfect way to celebrate your family.

    quemaster - Thanks for offering the feedback. I think once we get used to the new website design it will be more comfortable. I have been working with it for over a month now and it is more user friendly to me that in the beginning. BUT, any suggestions you have to make it better are very much appreciated. Thanks again for your kind words. :-)

    Watchhillgirl, sending good thoughts for your son to have a speedy and complete recovery. I hope he enjoys his prime rib dinner. Your family deserves a celebration!

    nakabi - I have some Gevalia coffee coupons for you, but don't have your new address. If you're still looking for them, you should have an e-mail from me about them that I sent yesterday or the day before. Just let me know, thanks!

    Where do you buy gas gift cards and who has the best prices? Thanks

    standing rib roast - the other day, I received an email coupon from EarthFare for $10 off a standing rib roast. I bet even w/ the coupon it costs more than HT!

    watchhillgirl-I'm glad your son is okay. I'll be praying for his quick recovery!
    and you are right, it makes you realize just how much you have to be truly thankful for!

    Faye-I agree with quemaster! I really appreciate all that you do! Even though I can't take advantage of most of the sales now that I live "out in the sticks" of TN (lol),I still check the blog almost daily! Thank you for all that you do for my family and I!!!

    Faye, just checked out the new WRAL website. I don't like it that they placed you two deep on the menus. You should have a headline link! YOU are the reason I go to the WRAL site! Plus, it took me a while to find the price book, coupon database, etc. And the whole comments thing has changed. Those I can get used to but not have a faster link seems a shame. But, I have you as a favorite on my menu bar so it's all good.

    Al, You can always find Faye by searching "Smart Shopper" from the top of any page, or you can scroll down. We've got her latest posts right there on the homepage!

    We're still working out the kinks. Thanks for your feedback!

    Thanks everyone. I know it isn't frugal, but I think it will be a nice treat for the family. We have a lot to be thankful for this year. My son had to have emergency surgery on Sunday and it was very scary. He is doing ok- will take a while to get his strength back- but I want to make his favorite. Makes you truely realize what is important!

    Fresh market had standing rib roast for 7.99 lb. not as good as HT but if that is not a true standing rib roast and you want one then it is an option.
