Nature's Bounty Coupon & Deal

Happy Labor Day, everyone.

I just found a really good deal on vitamins & nutritional supplements.  Our Smith's (maybe your Kroger) has Nature's Bounty vitamins Buy 1, Get 1 Free & the company just emailed me $1/1 coupon.  Print out 2 because you can use 1 per item.

I'm not sure how long they'll be running the special, so I plan on going soon.  For all y'all who don't live near a Smith's, Kroger is in their same family & should match their own specials.  I emailed them last year & their response was that they'd honor offers within their family...I hope their policy hasn't changed since then.

God Bless America

Amidst our crazy, hectic lives, I'd like to invite us all to take a minute to pray for our country.  I still get tears in my eyes as I remember the day we were all minding our own business & got sucker-punched on our own soil by a bunch of misled cowards. 

I am indescribably thankful for everyone who sacrificed their time, resources or lives that day in an effort to help their neighbor.  My deepest appreciation also goes to all military personnel & their families who have made painful sacrifices in an effort to keep us safe.

God bless you all & God Bless America.   :_-)
