    Holly, I just found out that most of these coupons (or a bunch of them, at least) match up with the big Catalina promo going on at Giant this week, too!

    I just wanted to mention that on my last trip to Giant, I asked about the Small victories mag, and they didn’t have any. But today, when I was there, they had a new coupon magazine! It was called “Spring Savings” and put out by General Mills, for all GM brands (including Yoplait, Pillsbury, and Big G cerals.) The booklet consists of 15 coupons for $1 off various GM products, and can be used at any store. All the coupons say “Do Not Double” on the top. But it’s a nice little booklet, if you can grab one (or three, like I did, real quick-like! LOL!)
