**Possible Deal Alert -- Cheap TP At Home Depot!

It looks like they are clearancing out the 4 packs of Charmin toilet paper (red pack)  - most stores have it for $.53  (Normally $2.00) Some HDs take coupons, some don't -- you might be able to use the $.25/1 from the 8/28 SS to get even a better deal! That would be only $.07 a roll !!! Keep in mind, you get a bonus 10% discount if you use your HD credit card... Good luck!
