    mothar1 - the rumor is August 10! I'll know for sure soon and will post as soon as we know more. But it looks good for the first HT triples in a VERY long time!

    Thanks for the avocado advice Faye and KathyS, I have seen them a little brown inside but just googled and apparently that's fine? I agree they are wonderful! When did you say triples might happen Faye??

    If you want avocados to ripen quicker leave in a brown or plastic bag for a day or two. Just be sure to check in every day until they are the way you like them.

    mothar1 - aren't avocados great?! And if they are hard when you get them, just give them a couple days and they will ripen nicely. I do that with the Aldi avocados when they are so cheap.

    Em2s - thanks for the Food Lion heads up! Going to check my account now. And I hope your family member is feeling better. :-)

    There was also a nice e-coupon for FL brand raisins among several other useful offerings.

    I've been attending sick family for more than a week and am playing catch up .... WoW, it's been a busy week of deals!!!! Wishing everyone a good week! And thanks Faye - and all blog posters - for your wonderful tips!! You're such a blessing!!!!

    if you go to Hip2save, there's a link for a smartsource 75 cents off 2 avocado coupon.
    Confession: I had never bought an avocado in my life until I saw some wonderful recipes on this blog!
