    If you need hand soap, there's a great deal at HT with the Softsoap hand soap. There's a $1 off coupon in the Smartsource? coupon booklet. The 10 oz size is on sale, $2/4 and there is a Colgate promotion where you get $3 off instantly when you buy 3 colgate items. Softsoap is a colgate item, so you end up getting 3 bottles for just the tax of 20 cents! Thats, if you have 3 of the $1 off coupons. If you only have one coupon, you'll pay $2.20 for the 3 bottles, so it's not that much of a deal then.

    Dr. D - thanks for the Target heads up on eggs and the Savingstar info! Will post about them in a bit. I love all the egg deals at Easter!

    jdouglas13 - ahhh. The tuna mystery is solved. And I like your idea of the tuna and mac salad. Will have to try that.

    Nicely done, Ascherer! :)

    The large quantity of tuna is really just a stock up so I don't have to go to WM again anytime soon. Sometimes we have tuna sandwiches for dinner (on rye toast of course), and I like to have it around for tuna-macaroni salad when the weather starts to get warm. It's just your basic macaroni salad with tuna added to it. It's pretty frugal, and I can hide a lot of veg in it. :)

    ascherer - wow - $200? Good job negotiating!

    When I sat down today to schedule payments for bills and realized AT&T had gone up to $200 a month. DH got on the phone with them. He talked to a customer retention agent and threatened to go to Time Warner. (We did have an offer from TWC that would cut our rate in half for basically the same service.) We got our same cable package, internet speed doubled, and unlimited calling (land line) for $127 with AT&T. It never hurts to call and ask for a lower price. They just might do it.

    jdouglas13 - what are you doing with that much tuna?? I don't recall seeing tuna on your menu in the past. Should I even ask? lol
