    comprehend, I don't know about their BOGO on tuesday this month, but all the meat I have gotten there has been very good.

    Thank You for the Fresh Market info .
    Is the pork BOGO every Tuesday this month ??
    Is their meat good ( tender ) ??

    I got the tomatoes from a local farm ( Lyons just north of Falls Lake )- they sell at Farmers Markets in the area too including Raleigh & Durham.I heard today that their little stands in the area will close for the season on Saturday ( August 10th) - I think their stands at the larger farmers market will continue a while longer but you may want to get what you can .They had the biggest blackberries I have seen in years - pick your own if you wanted which I might do this week for freezing or making jelly .

    I canned the tomatoes and cooked and cooked - lots of leftovers to warm up this week.
    I am still looking for Roma tomatoes - they may have be only a wish this year .

    DOes it make a big differenc on what coupons you can get doing the log-in ??
    I do not know if I can do that from work or not (I think there is a keylogger at my job )

    Fresh Market has BOGO Tuesdays every week, and the items change each month.

    For August, one of the items is bone-in pork chops. We got them last year, and they will cut them to order for you. We had them cut into 4 rib roasts, and they were delicious. Just make sure to tell them to cut the chine (sp?) bone so that you can cut them into individual chops if you want once they're cooked.

    Thank You everyone for the "zip code " help !!
    I never paid attention to the account & log-in tabs- I guess I was usually in too big of a hurry to print & run .
    I will try the login and see if I have been missing any good coupons !!

    Comprehend, great score on the tomatoes!! Where did you get them? And what have you been up to ever since? ;)

    Aneal, you know you're a full-fledged couponer when people start giving you the eye roll, or their eyes glaze over, or they run from the room screaming (kidding) when you start to talk about your deals LOL. We get it, though, and will always cheer you on! :) Awesome job at HT!!

    I just want to brag about my HT purchase today. I got 2 skippy peanut butters, 1 crest toothpaste, 2 klondike bars, 1 fruttare, and always infinity pads. After Vic, evic, and ZVR I paid $4.30. My husband is tired of hearing about couponing =)

    JustMe83: Like anywhere else you have to shop and watch prices. I like the meat bundle and they will have some other items on sale at a good price but if you watch sales you can do a little better. I find things at Carlie C's that aren't available elsewhere. I only go there about once per month.

    Shelleycole: 16gb for 9.98 is the MAX you should pay and there are sales for less. If they don't need 16gb you can get really good prices on 8gb.
