Sedano's is a Miami-based grocer that caters to the Hispanic market. This one is in an old Albertson's.  They had a sale on chicken leg quarters for $0.29/lb. The catch was that you had to spend $10 to get the deal. That wasn't a problem with the other sales they had.

Almost free Kohl's Trip

Kohl's

Total Value: $15.12
Percent Saved: 86%

So, I had a $10 off anything Kohl's coupon from the newspaper. I spent a little too much time there but managed to get out without spending too much. This device should save me money on soap. It is a foam soap dispenser, but foam soap is not required. You mix 10% regular soap  (which is cheaper than foam) with 90% water and the dispenser turns it into foam.
