  1. Hi Hollie,

    Q: On the dinner rolls q <.35> it says that do not double or triple. Have you use this q and it didn't double or triple when it says that?


  2. Hi, Tien! If you are referring to the crescent roll coupon, then yes I used it and it did triple. If it said DND I didn't even notice.

  3. Please tell me how do you keep the rolls. Do they do well in the freezer or do you use them up?

  4. Hi, Amber! I have never tried to freeze them, I just keep the ones that we will use in the refrigerator and the ones that I know we won't use I donate them to a local charity or give them to my friends and neighbors. If you try freezing them let me know how it works out for you.

  5. Hi Hollie,

    Thanks for reply on the rolls coupons. I was wondering what are the local charity do you give your stuff to? I want to donate some of my stuff but dont know where some of them are located. I wanted to pick some close to where I live.

    Thanks again,

  6. I've baked the rolls and then frozen them. They're great for after school snack pizzas.

  7. Hi, Tien! I donate to the FW Humane Society, The Tarrant Area Food Bank, The Ronald McDonald House, The Samaritan House and the Safe Haven Women's Shelter. The Humane Society is at 1840 E. Lancaster Avenue
    The Food Bank is at 2600 Cullen Street
    The Ronald McDonald House is right by Cooks Hospital
    The Samaritan House is at 929 Hemphill Street
    The Women's Shelter drop location is in Arlington, you can call them at 817 535 6464
    Let me know if you need more info.

  8. Hi, Can you tell me where/how to get the Kroger Home Mailer?

    Thanks for posting!

  9. I just started getting them one day so I didn't do anything particular to get them you could try to get them by making sure your Kroger Plus card is registered to your mailing address. If that doesn't work you could try calling the corporate number on the back of your card. Hope this helps, let me know if you have any luck.
