    BuckJJJ - who told you that about Kroger doubling? I was in Kroger today, used coupons and no mention of any changes.

    I have searched online and there is no chatter that I can find about it anywhere.

    Back in March, many midwest Krogers stopped doubling, but no news of that happening here.

    I'll call the local store mgr when I get a chance but please let me know where you heard this info.

    Oh, one more thing, has anyone tried the welches natural spread (jam) coupon? It is a new barcode and says do not double, so I wasn't sure if by chance it would double. (hoping it will be know it is not likely)

    Does anyone have any extra rebate coupons (beer aisle) for money back with purchase of bottled water? I have looked all over and could not find them. Lowe's had a sign that said check at customer service but they were out.

    Juanita I am glad you posted this. She was evidently in a bad mood. I was shocked at the scowl on her face the whole time she was ringing up your groceries. After you left I walked up to the cash registers to check out and her line was empty. Needless to say, I waited in line until another cashier was available and avoided her line. I am so sorry you had this problem.

    I was at the Wilson HT yesterday and today and lots of deals were gone. Didn't use many coupons either day. The worst part was they were doing resets and yesterday the whole store was a mess. Lots of items you couldn't even get to and they kept saying "are we in your way?" Not as bad today. There were a number of baskets of reduced discontinued items. Good deals if you had coupons to match and I didn't.

    I heard today that Kroger is no longer going to double coupons starting this Sunday. Faye have you heard this?

    ***EPIC FAIL AT LOWES FOOD*** I went to lowes foods with just a handful of coupons (maybe 9 or 10. Long story short, when I get to the register the cashier (young female) looks as if she is already having a bad day. So when she starts to scan my coupons the first 2 do not double (they did not say do not double on them) so I ask "aren't you all doing SD's?" and she tells me NO!!! She says "we usually only do it once in a while and its only a week long. So I say "well that should be this week, I'm so confused" We asked the cashier next to us if it was SD's week and she says yes, hhhmmm so I knew I wasn't crazy and I'm looking to see if maybe she will give me an apology, NO she says "well all the coupons I've scanned all day have not doubled so I don't know" REALLY???? That's it?? No apology. I'm definitely contacting corporate on this. I'm thankful that one of my fellow smart shoppers (holly515) was there to witness it all :) thanks for reading.....RANT OVER

    Can anyone recommend a good, quality hardwood floor cleaning/polishing, carpet cleaning, and house cleaners? We are moving into a house and I want it clean inside and out before we move in. I will do some of it but cant do everything in the limited time window before the movers come :)

    That's too bad, ncveteranswife. I hope they are better stocked when you go again.

    The Fuquay store on Main St was so slow at noon today. I could not believe it. They were out of a lot of the best deals but they do get a truck on Friday if you shop at that store. But I was still able to save $55 and pay $3.50. :-)

    And Heather, it was nice to meet you in the parking lot! Thanks for reading the blog! :-)
