I recently took advantage of a Pillsbury deal and now I have so many tubes of biscuits in our fridge, I'm worried they're going to go bad before we can eat all of them. The package says "do not freeze". What is your suggestion on how to make stockpiling these refrigerated items worth while? Is it better to bake them and then freeze?
Thanks! Heather

OK, I had a student last fall who said that she freezes them anyway- she just allows them to thaw in her fridge for two days before she opens them! She claims to never have had any problems!

I have two cans in my freezer waiting for my boldness to thaw them!


Worth a shot, I guess!


Could you explain how to stack Kroger coupons again? I get coupons from Kroger's in the mail, the tan and red ones and then ones that come in a little booklet. All of them say 'manufactor's coupon' on them, but I thought I remembered you saying that we could stack them. Just trying to figure this out. Thanks for all of your help.

Hi Megan,
Meijer is more of the coupon stacking grocery store... but IF your Kroger coupon states 'Store Coupon' instead of 'Manufacturer Coupon' than you may double dip your discount by spending two coupons (one store and one manufacturer)!
