preston went to church!

look at that smile!
can you believe that preston went to church last sunday and thanked everyone for praying for him? wow. he is a true miracle.

his dad journaled, "Prayer Warriors, Preston went to church on Sunday August the 9th. It was a great day. Not only did he go to church, he told the congregation he came to church to sing, “Today is the Day” (by Lincoln Brewster). He then proceeded to sing the chorus a cappella."

praise God and keep lifting this family up with your prayers.
you can visit preston's caringbridge website here.

harris teeter "save $5 wyb 15 select general mills"

you have probably read about this promotion.
are you going to do it?
i didn't think i would until i "ran some numbers".
the only thing i really wanted was brownies, got to have brownies in the house AT ALL TIMES!
but when i figured the price -coupons, then i looked at buying some other stuff and getting the $5 back, the price was about the same.
so why not?
you can always donate the extras.
go here to see how the folks at hot coupon world will be working this deal.

new target printables (expire 9/5/09)

free (or almost free) bananas!
target has uploaded some new printable coupons.
there are several "junk food" ones, but there is one for 50¢ off 1 lb. of bananas!

new coupon book at food lion

make sure to stop by the customer service desk at food lion to pick up the latest book "healthy community".
inside you will find store coupons for clorox wipes, greenworks cleaning products, ragu pasta sauce, lipton tea bags, lipton tea to go, breyers ice cream ($1.50/1!), and nature valley nut clusters.
these "store" coupons can be stacked, or used in addition to, any manufacturer coupon you may have.
there are also two manufacturer coupons that you could use anywhere. they are for frito variety packs or wheat thins and crystal light.

also, look for the "natures place" book. it contains manufacturer coupons for bear naked, red rose tea, and kashi cereals or snacks. i found this one near the checkout lanes in a basket.

and don't forget to check the beer section!

was it just me?

hey mooresville people...did your statesville record and landmark have any coupons this morning? mine did not and i'm upset about it!

last day for kraft mac and cheese catalina

today is the last day for this catalina, taking place at food lion and harris teeter.
it is listed on food lion's website, but not harris teeter's.
use the coupon from today's smart source to save $1/2 boxes.
the price at both stores is $1.99.
so the best deal i think is:
buy 4 boxes 1.99x4=7.96-$2 in coupons=5.96
get a $3 printout good on your next order.
net price 74¢ each
