Ann, why not plant some chives in a pot to keep by a window, you can snip to use fresh or snip & freeze if you have too much.

I had a raincheck for $ 3.00 off 2 boxes of Lipton green tea (limit 6) & I had 4 $ .75 coupons(our stores only double up to $ .50) & the tea was on sale so I ended up getting 6 boxes for a total of $ 1.50 ( that came to $ .25 a box). A good deal & one that is good for me also.

Thanks to the soaring price of gas I think any great prices or coupons will disappear.

I have a nice clump of chives in my garden.  They wintered very nicely.  I love seeing them bloom and of course I use the green leaves.

A couple of blocks from our house was a dad and a little boy selling lemons
in their front yard. Hubby thought the little boy was so cute so he stopped to
buy some. They were Meyer lemons and they were 10 lemons for a dollar.
He got the bag home and there were 17 lemons in the bag. They are nice
big ones. What a deal!! Normally you pay big bucks for Meyer lemons.
I will make some lemon bars on Wed. after I weigh in.Tongue out

Hi Ann, our discount store here "Marc's" sells potted herbs in the produce department do any of your stores? You can't get fresher than this and you can leave them grow and have fresh herbs all year.I have to buy new ones used them all over the winter.A dream of mine is to have a garden window where I could have them year round.

Just in time for Easter, I had a rain check for 6 Jello gelatin(I make jiggler eggs) & I had 2 coupons ( $ 1.25 off 3 )AND the store had a special display buy any 4 of the items listed (jello, pudding, vanilla wafers etc) get 1# fresh strawberries free (they were 2 for $ 5.00) I ended up getting 6 boxes of Jello gelatin & the free strawberries for a grand total of $  .80.

Dole pineapple was on sale for $ 1.00 a can & I had 4 coupons ( $ 1.00 off 3) so I got 12 cans for $ 8.00 (the stores do not double over $ .50), but $ .67 is a great price for a can.

In Response to Re: Finding a GREAT bargain in the grocery store.:
I notice similar reactions among the kids at our church.  We have an inexpensive family meal on Wednesdays at our church and sadly it is gradually becoming very like fast food "because that's what the kids want"  The other factor is that it is becoming harder to get people who are willing to prepare much "from scratch".  Fewer people seem to even know how!

You are so right!  My husband is a meat manager in a supermarket (in NJ) and is constantly asked,  "How do I cook this?", "What can I make with this?", "How much do I need?", etc.   Some of the questions are quite funny, and usually from middle-aged women (who should know how to cook by now!).

If you are talking about women in their 40's, you are so right, I have come across many (including 2 daughters -in -law, my youngest sister, 2 sisters-in-law, neighbor's kids & neighbors that are 35 to 50 years old).  I made sure our sons could make breakfast & several different dinners before they moved out (also how to do their laundry).  Turned out, they ended up cooking most meals because the "wife" did not know how to cook.  Many times I have had a cashier ask me what I was going to do with certain foods & one lady who is about 50 will ask me about certain foods that are on sale (she works at the store & I have given her a few recipes). Last week gr. chuck was on sale & I bought $ 20.00 worth, the girl asked me if I eat a lot of burgers, I told her we would have burgers the next day, but the rest would be for meatloaf, patty melt for hubby, maybe chili, stroganoff, spaghetti, meatballs & she said "wow, I did not think of making stuff like that with the meat". I did not know what to say so I just smiled.

Yesterday when I was shopping for groceries on the way home from church, Hy-Vee had butter for $1.58.  anything below $2 is a good price.  Must have butter for cookies, right Nancy?
