Thanks, Jill, for your help getting these freebies lined up.

also, I can't find the Meijer Naturals laundry Detergent anywhere at my store, but they are remodeling and everything's all wonky--anyone know if this got discontinued or something? also, did they do away with the bag credit? i haven't gotten a bag credit in at least 6 months--I always forget to ask.

Jessica~ Where did you find the Sweet Baby Ray's spread? I could only find the dipping sauce and bbq. I went to both A2Saline & Jackson Rd. I've got 4 coupons for dipping sauce that are burning a hole in my pocket :)

And, the bag credit has been gone since right around the time they started selling the reusable bags. Bummer, eh?

thanks for the info on the bag credit.--jess

jill: just to clarify--that was the grilling sauce--it's in a short cylindrical container.
