    Busels2, generally speaking, your Catalina coupon that says DND, or other coupons that indicate DND, will not double during Super Doubles. Of course, you never know what a particular cashier will do, but don't count on them doubling.

    Hope that helps! :)

    In preparation for Super Doubles, do catalinas double if it does not say DND? Thanks.

    I was at Aldi's in Cary today a gallon of milk was $1.39. The sign said $1.49. A dozen of eggs was $0.59 each.

    OBSERVANT - Thanks for the headsup on the gel pens at Staples ! Our 13-year old great niece will love them -she made beautiful Christmas cards from coloring book pages this year .
    My two favorite ladies ( wife and sister ) got beautiful bracelets for my sister's "chemo sisters" after her treatments . My wife says AC Moore had the best ones and Michael's was second .

    ADTRAN -I may be way off base in what you are looking for but here are some suggestions I thought of . If you want a variety of prizes the crafts stores ( Joann's, Michael's and A C Moore ) have lots of "trinkets " - nail polish/nail art,jewelry and jewelry kits, small stuffed animals , "journals" , bead / craft kits and coloring books, pencils/gel markers.
    Be sure to check for coupons ( you can get them on you phone ) - all will accept most competitors coupons ( A C Moore will not take the total purchase ones). Ask what discounts they offer for teachers, first responders, military etc.
    Dollar Tree has nail art & Staples may also have some low priced items.
    I got 36 gel pens in a storage case for $4.99 at Staples last week DH found candy yesterday very cheap ($1 for dark chocolate caramels)

    ADTRAN re teenage party gifts: all the stores have lots of gift sets on clearance now, so you can get great deals at places like target, walmart, jcpenny, belks, kohls, tjmaxx, michael's, acmoore, jo-anns, etc. you'll find shaving kits, soap/lotion kits, makeup & perfume kits, scarfs/gloves/hats, craft kits, sewing kits, cooking kits, etc. Lots of these kits are $5 or less. You can also make up your own kits from the dollar stores or travel sections in lots of these stores.

    I need some small gifts for a teenage girl's party for prizes. I'd like to stay under $5 per gift. I grabbed a few at Ulta. Any ideas where else to find this time of item?
