There's a "Hunger Games" parody in the works called "The Starving Games". And if that title makes you groan, well, the movie itself isn't likely to get a better reaction out of you. It's by the same guys who do all those AWFUL spoofs like "Date Movie", "Disaster Movie", "Epic Movie", "Meet the Spartans" and "Vampires Suck".
For most of us, the hardest thing about using coupons is REMEMBERING them when we go to the store. But with smartphone apps, you don't have to. Here are six new apps to help you save money on groceries, and almost all of them work for both the Droid and the iPhone.
1. ZipList. You create a master checklist for the stuff you buy regularly, and it searches for relevant coupons. It also sorts them by aisle, for certain participating stores.
2. Weekly Ads & Sales. This gives you virtual copies of the regular store circulars, and also notifies you when stores are having sales. But you can only get it for the iPhone.
3. Grocery iQ. This one looks at the items on your grocery list, and finds coupons you can use.
4. SavingStar. This one registers your frequent shopper cards and sends you special deals, based on what you've bought in the past. Some deals let you buy the required items over multiple trips, and save big money at the end.
5. CellFire. It sends coupons directly to your frequent buyer cards, and then sends reminders to your phone whenever you walk into the store. You can get it for the Droid, iPhone, AND Blackberry.
6. Ibotta. It gives you cash rebates for watching videos and taking surveys. After you buy stuff, you scan your receipt, and they send money back. Usually only a quarter or two, but it adds up.
UPDATE: Spilled fuel caused the explosion in the back of the delivery truck Wednesday afternoon that injured two people, according to the Lynchburg Fire Marshal's Office.
The generator in the the back of the truck had recently been used and tipped over spilling fuel onto insulation that was being delivered.
The two men who were traveling in the truck are recovering from severe burns following the explosion.
The two had pulled into the parking lot of the Lakeside Drive Quik-E Food Store to reportedly investigate smoke in the vehicle when the first explosion occurred. Employees immediately cut the gasoline pumps off and called 911.
Eyewitnesses reported two explosions and believed the two people in the truck had exited and opened the back doors around the time of the first explosion. A second explosion came minutes later, they said.
The two men were transported to the hospital where they are being treated for severe burns. One witness described one of the men rolling on the ground after catching fire.
UPDATE: A spokesperson for the insulation company said one of the men was flown to the University of Virginia Medical Center yesterday and the other person was expected to be released from the hospital today.
The truck was transporting insulation products, said to be highly flammable, according to ABC 13. Officials noted that a generator was on the truck.
We certainly hope the two people will be okay.
