In Response to Finding a GREAT bargain in the grocery store.:
I have found that many stores have mark down sections.  Check the produce area for fresh vegetables that no longer look as pretty as they once did. Vegetables like this are great for soups and stews. The produce area may also have fruits that are just ripe or a bit past prime. Fruits like this are great for cobblers, sauces and or butters.  Home  made apple butter is so easy and very tasty. Also fruits that are ripe or a bit over ripe are great for a smoothie. Bananas freeze well and can be used for all sorts of things. The meat counter also has it's share of bargains.  Meat that has reached it's sell by date is often marked down. I found my Christmas Beef Rib Roast for $3.99 a pound rather than the $5.99 a pound it was on sale for.  bought 2, cut one into steaks and froze the bones for soup.  Served the other one for Christmas dinner. Sam's Club is a great place to find mark downs on meat. (Costco does not mark down they donate to shelters.) Shop after holidays for other bargains.  A ham purchased after Thanksgiving or Easter can be cut into chunks, frozen and then made into soup or sliced for sandwiches. Anybody else have any secrets they want to share?

I love the meat  sales at festival foods .....I try to stock up on their items when they are cheaper....we are at the point in our lives if we are hungry for raspberries ,etc. we pay the price and just enjoy them. With gas prices so high it doesn't pay to drive all over looking for sales.

Remember to check you coupons for cheaper baking supplies. If you do not receive your coupons in the local paper call your local newspaper and complain. I called the newspaper  Monday and  made them aware of missing comics, the parade insert, office depot, staples, CVS, Rite Aid, the drugstore ads etc. I left messages  at ever number I could find. YES I received call backs. I told them that I paid for an entire paper and that is what I expect.

I paid  a total of 1.51 cents for two four pound bags of Dixie Crystal sugar. I used two 55 cents  coupons which were doubled. I received an additional ten cents off by having/using my own shopping bags. Coupons are GREAT.
I drove to another store about a block away and purchased two twelve packs of national brand name sodas  for 1.50 each.I again used  Coupons.

You can sometimes find really good deals in what my sister refers to as "the crack-up" bin.  One time there were several bags of coconut in it and what happened is that they had come from another store that was either closing or something.  They were all in code and about 1/2 price

It's more and more difficult to find bargains in the grocery store even with coupons.

I think most of the papers had the coupons in the Wednesday paper.  Most of the ads were in then as well as the coupons that would have been in Sundays paper.

When I make cookies using the recipe on the Toll House bag, they almost always turn out flat and large. Is it that I use butter or from something else?  Any ideas as to how to make the cookies "puffy"?
