    I am looking for angel soft Kleenex for my nursing home project? Clayton use to carry them but have not seen them in a while. Do any of you who shop in the Raleigh area HT stores see them?

    Target in Apex had men's Wrangler jeans on clearance too- all I could find was one pair for my son (thank goodness he isn't a brand-fanatic teenager) with the extra 20% off cartwheel ended up pay $4. I'm going to try and look at another Target tomorrow and see if I find more.

    This may be too late for everyone, but there's a redbox code UB89RBBB that can be used in the mobile app or online for a free dvd rental, don't think it works at the machines. Thanks to Hip2save for the heads up.

    Holly - Congrats on the upcoming delivery! It's so exciting! I just posted a deal for Fiber One granola bars at Lowes Foods with the coupon from Makes them $1 per box.

    LOSLTP- I didn't know that on Canada, but not surprised. Well, it could get pretty depressing, but I do think it's good to be informed on it all.

    Jdouglas - What time do you want to schedule an appointment? I'll teach for the low, low price of someone else cooking dinner. Seriously, I could easily do this if there is a need for it. With my on again/off again work schedule, sometimes I have a lot of time on my hands.

    This isn't a money saving idea, but it sure could be a money-making idea for the right person with general techie skills. Offer 1:1 tutoring to some of us older folks who didn't grow up with computers, cell phones, DVD players, etc. I, for one, would hire you for sure, and I bet there's a lot of other people who would too. The prices would just have to be reasonable to fit into a retiree's reduced-income budget.

    FAYE - So Sorry for the delay in my THANKS about the smartphone .
    I am on the verizon network just like my old regular cell phone was .
    I buy minutes/data/text as I need it - no contract & no billing from verizon .
    As for the tex - the REDBOX one worked just like some other did - immediate reply .
    Others have never replied back- I downloaded the apps thru the app store ( Google Play) then did some of the tests again or registered at website with my email address so I am still playing and waiting lol !!
    Thanks Again for the REDBOX app and the help !

    RFB -- I had no idea American companies were doing that !! doee seem like a waste of time and money - can you imagine how many preservatives are in that stuff ?
    I did a story several years ago for as blog about chicken/food products coming from China . Did you know some foods are shipped to Canada then packaged and shipped into the USA so packaging can say "product of North America" ?
    If i could I would raise my own meats ...
