    smolder13: I began using Chrome this week, and know the Kroger balloon popped for me with it yesterday, but today they would not. It did work for me today with Internet Explorer, so you might try another browser if you have one available.

    spaldingcoupon: Yes, thanks for the coupon links!

    scoutmomof2: Thanks, I'll stop looking for the Campbell's Q. And if those 2 boys seem to eat continuously, better eggs than other less nutritious stuff. :)

    All: The ZVR software might have Gremlins. I had trouble with mine sporadically for a couple of months; sometimes they'd all work, sometimes none worked, and sometimes even in the same transaction some would be deducted while others would not. Then for the past month or so they've been deducting perfectly every time. I haven't seen any pattern that would explain the mystery. So I try to remember to check my receipt before leaving the store, just in case.

    Does anyone happen to have an extra copy of the latest P&G Brand Saver coupon insert? (I believe it was in last weekend's paper, the one time I didn't buy one!) I'll be glad to reciprocate with any coupons you might need that I have. Thanks!

    smolder - like jdouglas, I was able to get the Kroger game to work, but did not win anything today.

    smolder, I got it to work, but didn't win any $$. :(

    Has anyone been able to get the Kroger promotional instant win game to work today? I haven't had any luck. The page will load (with the balloons), but when I click nothing happens.

    Savvysaver, FWIW, wax paper is different from parchment just in case he specifically needs wax paper. It's cheaper than parchment, too.

    Reynold's brand of wax paper (Cut-Rite) at HT is $1.99. The HT brand is $1.49, both 75 sq. ft. Walgreen's also has their store brand which I use all the time, and I think I picked it up on sale for even less than that.

    moo - thanks for the heads-up on the half-price Tide in Cary. I had the ZVR plus a $1.50 coupon, so it made it a great price for that size. (My ZVR didn't come off, so had to be reimbursed for it - you might want to check to make sure yours did!)

    Savvysaver - I usually pick up my waxed paper at my local Dollar General, so am sure you should be able to find it at Dollar Tree, as well.

    Thanks for the Dreamfields link, spalding!

    toffton - many people have reported issues with ZVR's this week. If you head to customer service, they will give you the ZVR's that should have come off in cash. I suggest printing out your ZVR list from the HT website so you can easily show them the amounts.

    I just priced matched the bananas from Aldi and the roma tomatoes from FL at Walmart at 40/42 with no issues at all. I had the ads with me but he didn't ask to see them.

    If you go to you can print out a $1.00q for pasta 2x, makes it .69 a box at HT. If you go to you can print out a .75q for gorton's grilled items 2x, they're on sale this week at Harris Teeter B1G1 which makes it $1.00 per box!
