    Dr. D- I typically buy my almond butter at HT. Their name brand is $6.99 for 16 oz. My Aldi's carries it but it is a small jar for $4.99 I think. I'm due to go to Trader Joe's this week (lucky enough to work .5 miles from the Cary store) and I'll try to check the price for you.

    Thanks, STRAITLOVER1965, I'll keep watching for the almond butter to appear at my Aldi. But I'm in big trouble if they also start offering cashew butter - that sounds TOO yummy! Meanwhile, I might need to visit TJ's, because it's been awhile, plus I'm thinking $5.99/16 oz beats the other supermarket prices.

    TJs does have almond butter. If I recall, it was like 4.99 or 5.99 for a 16 oz jar. I'm pretty sure I saw it at the Aldi in Garner (it was either almond or cashew). It's with the peanut butter, not where the coconut oil and stuff is. The label is green and white like they are using for some of their organic type items. Can't remember how much it was though.

    Thanks Faye. My Aldi hasn't yet carried almond butter, but they now stock coconut oil, and have been increasing their offerings of organic products, so I'll keep watching! The nearest Trader Joe's is 15 minutes in a direction that is not on my way to anywhere I normally travel, although I do enjoy shopping at TJ's when I am near one, and I'd bet you are correct that they carry almond butter.

    Faye - last week I got filet mignon half price but that will probably be the only time. The butcher told me they would only cut those on weekends now to avoid markdowns. I was sure looking yesterday hoping!

    LAXMom12 - nice score on the marked down meat. Maybe that is why there were many meat markdowns at my local FL store yesterday as well. Either way, I was happy to get the sirloin steaks at a good markdown price. :-)

    jdouglas13 - I got 100 pts for it yesterday so it must just be your lucky day!

    Rasemom -- thanks - will post about the recall.

    Dr D - although I have never bought it, I am guessing they carry it at Trader Joe's. You may want to try there. And if Aldi carries it, it is probably a decent every day price.

    I just entered the code posted yesterday at KFR and got 400 points! Not quite sure how that happened, but I was happy! :)
