    I bought one of the .99 pineapples from Aldi's and it's really sweet....small but good.

    Oh heck no! We're the ones who totally get it nakabi LOL - we're doing happy dances over similar deals and bargains all the time, we're right there with you :)

    Seriously, if you were not a couponer and you overheard conversations of two excited people who scored some great deals, you might be concerned .... on the other hand, other couponers would want to celebrate with you LOL

    Happy dance away!!!

    pss-I work for an insurance company and we have a lot of painters/contractors that we insure (independent and non-independent). A couple come to mind. If you want to email me at nakabinichols@gmail.com I'd be happy to pass their info to you.

    pss3, I wish I had someone I could recommend for you. We had someone do some painting for us about 8 years ago, and was really disappointed at the mess he made and the lousy job he did. Are you a member of Angie's List? It is a paid subscription to join (and not cheap unless you can find a Groupon or something for it), but I've found them pretty helpful over the years when we were moving from place to place and had no one to ask for recommendations on anything.

    Got a question and hoping y'all can offer some advice. We are in the very early stages of getting our house ready to put it on the market and we need several rooms painted. The trim and ceilings look good. I am the only one in our house who can paint and it is just too much for me to do on my own. Has anyone hired someone to paint before or knows someone looking for a side job? We have all the paint and tools. We definitely want someone with experience but still affordable. We live in Clayton. Thanks!

    I got the $5/30 from CVS also. Combined with the $10 ECBs and the MCs for mars and hershey candy, that means cheap Easter Candy, Bertolli and Skippy PB combined some cash to get another $9 in ECBs to spend on the A&W etc. 3/$11 deal. My kids will be so happy.

    That is indeed sad!

    On a happy note, I see that the McCains's q from savingstar reset so I can get some for free!!! Don't laugh at me doing my happy dance in my chair!

    Nakabi, seems to me I've tried to use one of those CVS coupons at HT, but they didn't accept them because they were a printable. It was a long time ago, though, so I may be wrong on that or it may have since changed.

    HT's policy says no printable competitors coupons so the sad answer is no. :-(
