This was a crazy week as I tried to get all the weekly deal lists typed and scheduled to post before we left town.  As you read this I am far away from the internet (the only way to force me to take a vacation) in the mountains with family.  Amidst the crazy typing spree I did make it out to Publix and Kroger.  I tried to make it to Publix for the penny salad dressing but now that Kraft is free I’m not too upset about missing it.
