Wednesday deals...

Retailers are preparing for spring and summer and they are hoping you are, too. This week you'll find a lot of deals geared towards moms with kids. There are sales on allergy medicines, Band-Aids and Neosporin just about everywhere.

It also continues to be a good time to stock up on cheap meat, especially chicken and beef. And there are some good deals on Kimberly Clark products (Brawny, Quilted Northern, etc.) to correspond with that mail-in rebate and coupons that were in this Sunday's inserts. And this is a good week for little hidden deals that are good ones. Like, at Kroger, you can pick up free Snickers bars and free Bumble Bee tuna pouches this week. So read carefully, shoppers!

Deal of the week:
I’m happy to see a milk sale this week, and I'm especially happy to see gallons of milk for $1.99 at Lowes Foods. Remember when milk prices spiked to $4 a gallon a few years back?

Kroger Tuna

I have been to Kroger Monday and Wednesday, and 2 different stores were out of the BB tuna. I had the same problem with the No Yolks at HT last week, but I got a raincheck for that. Hopefully they will get the tuna back in before the sale is over!

Ester C B1G1 @ Harris Teeter

Picked up some Ester C tonight for $0.42! It's priced at $8.85 and B1G1 and I had a few $4 coupons! Score!
There were also a bunch of disposable razors on clearance - would have been a good deal to pair with some of the $3 & $4 coupons that are out (Gillette Fusion and Schick) had they not been out of them. There were also a *ton* of Neutrogena and Olay creams in the clearance carts up front, if anyone needs to stock up!

Kroger also has Kraft cheese

Kroger also has Kraft cheese (shredded or bars) for $.99 after the mega-sale discount. And the store at Maynard and High House has a blinkie machine with $1/2 coupons. That makes for a GREAT deal on the cheese.

Annie's Mac & Cheese is also part of the deal, and at $.49 a box, is cheaper than I've ever seen it.

Yes...

Yes, that's what I'm saying. However, remember that sometimes you will run into a manager/cashier who will say otherwise and there is unfortunately not much you can do...

Retailer + Manufacturer coupon at HT?

I was rejected before on a coupon from a flyer and a manufacturer's coupon at HT before. I thought it said retailer as well, but of course now can't say for 100% sure. However, you are saying that their policy is to take both for an item correct?
