target struggles and stuff

went to target last night and was very frustrated with teenage boy checking me out.
he wouldn't let me use 2 MANUFACTURER coupons. the pantene coupon stated "limit one coupon per purchase" which to me means because i purchased 2 bottles of shampoo, i can use 2 coupons.
the target coupons, we all know, say 1 per transaction, which is much clearer.
anyway, i emailed target, got a generic coupon policy email, so i sent email #2. waiting to hear back.
looks like others are having this problem too!

today in the mail i got a say hello to up & up book, filled with coupons for all sorts of things.
up and up is target's new store brand.

and finally, here is a post from abundant food savings about different printable coupons from different zip codes. included in this list is a printable from zip 60040 for $1/1 package of gold n plump chicken.

coupon inserts for this sunday

some say there will be no inserts this week, some say just one proctor and gamble.
i would think since we got the P&G last weekend, we wouldn't get it again.
on the proctor and gamble website they advertise the next insert as september 27.
frugal gossip had a great idea for those of us who really only get the paper for coupons.
put your paper on a "vacation hold".
here is the link to the charlotte observer's website where you can do that online.
then, your extra paper will be tacked on to the end of your subscription!

confirmed: no cheap chicken

went up to food lion, hoping, praying.
the strawberries were absolutely gorgeous though!

laundry coupons

here are a couple of high value laundry coupons.
$2/1 gain with febreze
$3/1 greenworks laundry detergent

food lion 9/2-9/8

here are the lists for food lion this week.
southern savers
coupon kim

no cheap chicken breast in our food lion ad :(

our mooresville circular does not say anything about the boneless skinless chicken breasts for $1.67.
i'm gonna go check at our store to make sure.
i'll let you know.
i'm bummed...

*might be my old computer but when i finished my "profile" to get the coupon i had to hit enter on my keyboard while my curser was still in the "re-enter password" box. it wouldn't let me click "done".
