    I forgot to mention that the clerk I spoke to said our area (Johnston County and surrounding area) is a test market for future sales restructuring but they were still very confused about what, if anything was even on sale today and what to tell customers. Thanks for all your help Faye and all of the other avid couponers out there!!

    Faye, Do you know what is going on with CVS? I went to the one at Flowers Plantation today and clerk said they are making big changes to their sale structure, they had no sales flyer in paper or on racks today and no sales tags on the shelves. Clerks were pretty confused about what they had been told.

    I have also had a problem with N&O. I order 2 papers and it was a throw of the dice of what I would get. Sometime one or none. I then went to renew and they took my credit card info and then started charging me weekly. I still don't know what they did with my card information. I called, put in missing paper, commented on facebook and finally posted on the better business bureau. I only got somewhere when I posted a complaint on the BBB website. That is because they have a certain amount of time to respond.

    On the N&O, I had no response to emails or phone calls, but logging in and entering the missed paper date got action. You have to enter it within a week of the missed date if I remember correctly. I didn't get the paper for a month, and only started getting it again when I logged in online and started reporting it in that way. It was pretty frustrating.

    ASCHERER - You can not be too careful these days !
    I wash all produce and allow to dry before storing - even bananas !
    Meats are removed from original packaging and vacuum-sealed asap - then placed in fridge if using in a day or two or frozen in big freezer immediately.
    I will keep an eye out for deals on insulated bags :
    Kroger offered a special promo last year (?) with the insulated bag free if you bought certain items. Food Lion was running a "feed the children" type promo when you bought a re-usable bag .I do not know if the insulated one counted for the promo or if the promo is on-going .

    For the problem with the N&O, try calling the circulation department rather than customer service. I've had good luck that way in the past.

    LOSLTP - I wash my reusable bags in the washer and then dry them in the drier. I use the wipes to clean the hard plastic inserts. I do need to get an insulated bag. Thanks for the tip on cleaning them.

    BPARRISH004 - We have had a huge problem with the N&O. We bought a Groupon for it. It was a buy 1 bet 1. Our subscription has been fine but the one we gave to DH's brother has beent he problem. He never received the paper and we have not been able to get a refund.

    Just looked at Walgreens ad for next week and eggs are $1.99 a dozen. Ouch! That makes HT eggs this week look like a better deal.
