    Awww- I am so glad that worked out! Sometimes I get scared of referring or suggesting someone/service but I've used them 4 times (3 here in N.C. alone due to the CRAZY rent increases...). I am hoping to be done with moving for the next 3 years while my son finishes and graduates high school- fingerscrossed :-)

    Since when did Kroger start issuing 30 day rain checks?

    RFB - I am so glad you had a successful move! Great advice on the Uhaul and contracted movers. Enjoy your new home!

    Our move is done!!! And I just wanted to report on how the actual moving company did and how we saved a ton of money. I got some great input a few weeks back on here regarding renting my own U-Haul and using one of their online contracted movers (and I can't remember who wrote about this... please remind me so I can thank you again!)

    It was SO easy (they took care of everything except the truck, and furniture pads), and saved us almost $400 compared to using a full service mover. Just wanted to pass it on, as I would do it again in a second. And if you do decide to go this route, make sure to check out Jerry's Movers. I actually had them out twice to the house this week to do a primary moving of furniture going to charity. And then my full move yesterday. All 4 were SO nice and talented and helpful (2 different sets of men each time). Plus, Jerry, the owner, came by at one point as well, and he is awesome. Great service, and a great deal!

    I got my rebates too! Thanks to my Rebate Form Fairy! I can really use the extra $50 right now. I was trying to keep grocery shopping under $200 this month, and failed miserably. I'm already at $400 and there's still another week left in the month. Is it me, or are grocery prices still rising a lot?

    Thanks for the heads up on Krispy Kreme, Faye. The last I had heard about the game -- in passing, of course, because we all know I don't follow football -- was that the Panthers were losing. Glad they turned it around so we can all get $3.99 Krispy Kreme.

    I also posted this on the CVS thread. CVS Minute Clinics have a $25 or so coupon book from Johnson & Johnson this week, no purchase necessary.
