Brief pdfing tutorial by CouponDude

Ok download this pdf printer

http://mirror.pdfatlas.com/mirror/BullzipPDFPrinter_6_0_0_865.zip

If you goto food lions site when you print the coupons choose the pdf printer and it will make a pdf. Next download this and install it this is a pdf editor
http://mirrors.foxitsoftware.com/pub/foxit/editor/desktop/win/2.x/2.1/enu/FoxitPDFEditor21_enu_Setup.exe

Ok to make things simple for you download one of the old weekly pdf files from the wiki. After you have it saved on your pc, open it with the pdf editor. then click edit at the top menu and choose select all, then right click on the sheet and choose delete object. Your sheet should be blank now. Choose file from upper menu and then save as and name it fliptemplate. Now download whatever pdf file and open it with the editor and take the arrow and draw a box around the entire area you want such as one coupon right click and choose copy. Now open the flip template file you made and right click on the empty sheet and choose paste, viola !!! Put it where you want by dragging irt around if you right click again you can paste it again and again.
By drawing a box around the coupon (or when it is selected) you want to place if you need to turn it sideway the box at bottom right ---select transform and then put 90 in the rotate spot to turn it on its side. I dont mess with sizes anymore i just use the default size of the q as it comes from foodlions site. If you use the snapshot feature in a pdf VIEWER it will mess with the size ....HTH

I shop at a Foodlion in Cookeville and the last time me and DH were there, the cashier said that she and the other cashiers had to sign something that said they would not allow mulitple transactions by the same customer. I had two transactions planned and asked (pointing to DH) He's a customer and I'm another customer? She said, I don't see why not. We also have seperate MVP cards.

This is the first time any issue like this has come up.
Newer one or older one? Just last week we had no trouble at the older store with a younger cashier.

I haven't been to a FL in a full week Faint

My All coupons didn't make it in time Crying and i'm tired of buying capri suns and chicken Roll
But i'm planning on going on a roundtrip hitting up FL, so all hope isn't lost for me just yet.
Don't feel bad because I haven't found any of the food lions around here that had any of the All in stock. I guess everyone hit them up hard.

The coupon says one printer per customer. HOWEVER it further states one use per person,per transaction, per day etc. They are trying to cover all the bases. So if you have a few different MVP cards(and their is no rule against it) you could use them seperately. I would suggest different stores unless you want to argue with Coupon Nazi's.
I have noticed that in my little podunk area our FL cashiers are really scrutinizing the coupons, or at least attempting to. I guess FL wants to crack down on multiple uses or whatever but frankly they don't word their coupons accurately to ensure this.
I noticed yesterday that the vegetable Flip didn't scan and had to be manually entered. It is also useful on the steamable FL veggies in bags (like steamfresh).

My Food Lion is not very with it. I had a cashier tell me that they don't take internet printables a couple weeks ago but she scanned it and it went through. I just wish they could all get on the same page when it comes to coupons. But I wish that for all the stores not just Food Lion.

One of my favorite employees is my FB friend. She said daytimers are cracking down and pointing things out to management.
That really angers me.....well when I go back to work, I won't get off until like 4...so is that night time enough to shop do you think? Besides, iI am sure t won't be long before the same thing happens with the night time staff..

Why are they doing this? It is not like FL gets that much business in the first place..The parking lot is ALWAYS empty, and very rarely do they need more than one cashier at a time...I mean you can count on one (sometimes two) hands how many customers are in the store at one time...You would think they would be greatful for the business they can get out of these deals..I mean, nine times out of ten I wind up getting more than I go in the store for...so in the long run, I wind up spending my savings there anyway...

Jamestown is closing if it hasn't already.

Most of the teens come in around 4, so that will be perfect.

Meant to post this last week:
For all you perverts Rofl2 that still have Cool Whip left, here's a quick easy recipe even I can make:

1 tub of Cool Whip
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 small (4oz I think) plastic container lemon juice
1 graham cracker pie crust (not deep dish unless you double up the filling)

Use a hand mixer to combine Cool whip, milk, & lemon juice.
Spread evenly into pie crust & refrigerate until it sets up.

The pie should be ready in a few hours, but personally I like it better after its chilled a couple of days and the crust starts to get soggy. I'll even eat it without the crust. I haven't done so yet, but I want to try this and use pineapple juice instead of lemon.
