My Shopping Trips (Harris Teeter Super Doubles)

Honestly, my Harris Teeter Super Doubles shopping trips have been cra-zy this week. Sadly, no pictures. I still have a few more trips planned, but so far I’ve spent around $20 on over $150 worth of groceries . . . and $13 of that was butter, bread and pears. We are pretty stocked up on free Vintage Seltzer/toiletries/chocolate and cheap cereal/frozen meals.

While I usually don’t take advantage of the pizza and burrito deals, I am starting to add a few things to my freezer for after Baby #3′s arrival when Mama doesn’t feel like cooking :D

Shopping Trips:

16 Vintage Seltzer – FREE!
4 Chex Cereal
1 Cheerios
4 Wheat Thins
2 Lindt Chocolate – FREE!
10 Monterrey Burritos – FREE!
2 State Fair Corn Dogs
2 Palemero Pizza
4 Nestle Toll House Morsels
2 Furmanos Tomatoes – FREE!
2 Cover Girl Eye Enhancers – FREE (this was a $4 money maker!)
1 Pampers Pull Ups
1 Olay Body Wash – FREE!
1 Scope Mouth Wash – FREE!
1 Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant – FREE!
1 Gillette Shave Prep – FREE!
3 Snickers Bites – FREE!
1 HT Wide Pan Bread
4 Pears
4 1lb HT Salted Butter

I only noted one mistake on my receipts, and that was that my $1/3 Vintage Seltzer EVIC coupon didn’t come off :( I’m going to see if they’ll fix it next time I’m in the store if I can find the receipt.

Lastly, because I forgot to take pictures of my shopping trips, and because I am shameless :) here is a cute picture of my kids in their Halloween costumes:

They kill me! It was their first time trick or treating and they had a BLAST.

My Harris Teeter Super Doubles Shopping Trip 10/30

-2

I’m super excited about my Harris Teeter Super Doubles shopping trip this morning!

I scored awesome deals and it’s a great example of how coupons can help you save on items that everyone uses – not just junk food.  I purchased laundry detergent, deodorant, makeup, tuna, water and more for super cheap; even FREE!  Coupons aren’t all fruit snacks and boxed meals as some skeptics claim :)

One thing I made sure to do today was to use the coupons that expire tomorrow.  I then moved on to a few things that I thought might sell out like the mascara, burritos and popcorn.  I also grabbed the tuna pouches today,  so I could throw them in hubby’s lunch this week.

Thinking ahead to Christmas, the white chocolate has now been put away for hubby’s stocking – one of his all time favorite foods is white chocolate :)

See all the Harris Teeter Super Doubles Deals here.

2 HT Organic Milk Half Gallon = $7
1 Febreze Noticables = $2 moneymaker after e-VIC coupon
4 Vintage Seltzer = $1 moneymaker after e-VIC coupon
1 Scope Rine = $0.51 moneymaker after e-VIC coupon
2 Covergirl Flamed Mascara = FREE
1 Secret Clinical Deodorant = FREE
4 El Monteray Burritos = FREE
2 Pop secret = FREE
2 Lindt white chocolate bars = FREE
1 Febreze Air Effects = FREE
1 Febreze  Car Vent = FREE
4 Starkist Tuna Creations = $1
4 Starkist Tuna Salad = $2
1 Tide Detergent = $0.99
1 Jose Ole Mini Tacos Box = $1

Total Paid = $9.87
Total Saved $97.24

Please note that Harris Teeter doesn’t give cash back so if you have items that are going to be a moneymaker after the e-VIC coupon, you need to have other items to cover the overage.

*The Hanbury store  in Chesapeake is well stocked.  Everything seems to still be in stock at 10am and they had lots of endcaps, displays and extra boxes of items around the store.

How did you do?

My Farm Fresh Shopping Trip Today!

 

My Farm Fresh Shopping Trip Today!

I made a quick trip to Farm Fresh today to grab just these few things, but it was well worth it!  I paid only $10.00 OOP.  How were your shopping trips today?  Did you find any other good deals?  ~Melissa

Transaction #1
(4) Kraft Block Cheese $6.00
(Received $1.00 Catalina.  According to Coupon Network this should have been a $3 catalina wyb 4, but it only printed out for $1.00. It doubled  on my next transaction so that’s ok)

Transaction #2
(2) Kellogg’s Corn Flakes $1.78 (I had a printable for $1.00 off any one Kellogg’s cereal that expires today-NLA)
(4) Post Fruity Pebbles $4.00
Used $1.00 Catalina from 1st transaction which doubled

Total OOP: $10.00 + tax

BTW-the Fruity Pebbles in the photo are not the correct size.  I had to go back and get the right size boxes that were on sale 2/$4 :)

My Harris Teeter Triple Coupons Shopping Trip {Emily}

IMG_20130912_112541_895

IMG_20130911_122759_526Overall, I’m pretty happy with my two trips to Harris Teeter with Triple Coupons.

I spent $26.31 for $145.17 worth of groceries for a savings of 82%, which came out to just $.57 per item.

I was able to use a Skippy Peanut Butter raincheck and a Catalina from the Food Lion Store Brand Sale. I bought the wrong size Heinz Ketchup, making my totals a littler higher than expected, but I will not be going back to fix it – we practically drink ketchup around here and its not worth it for a few dollars I’d get back. Lastly, I still have coupons for the Kraft Fresh Take if I can find some in stock before the week is out, and I already got a raincheck for the Van’s Waffles which we’re out of stock by 11am the first day. Whew :)

(Oh, and I just discovered that if you check the bakery section you’ll often find bread items marked with yellow stickers and a dollar off amount. I scored two bags of take n bake rolls for just $.86 each after discount! Put ‘em in the freezer and save them for pasta night, MMmm!)

Seeing all your pictures of shopping trips makes me really happy – let us know if you find any other great deals!

My Harris Teeter Shopping Trip 9/4

I just wanted to do a quick post today from my Harris Teeter shopping trip Wednesday.

There were some pretty good deals to grab, even without coupons (like $1.99/lb. ground beef, $.79 eggs and $.99 organic baby carrots!) and since I had a $10 off $50 coupon that they mailed me, I went ahead and did a “big shop” for stock up priced items and a few things we needed:

IMG_20130904_130306

I got:

3lbs Grapes
2lbs Broccoli
8 Bananas
2 bags of Organic Baby Carrots
1 Garlic
5 Pears
5 Sweet Potatoes
Bag of Lemons
5lbs Ground Beef
6 Dozen HT Eggs
24oz. HT Sour Cream
2 Stonyfield Organic Fat Free Plain Yogurt
2 HT Wide Pan Whole Wheat Bread
1 Lg. HT Quick Oats
12 1L Vintage Seltzer
2 Mario Olives
2 Smucker’s Magic Shell 

Total: $44.51 (a savings of 56%!)

Couponers aren’t just buying processed/packaged foods – despite what some my think. You CAN eat fresh fruit and veggies, meat and dairy AND save money. You just have to be a strategic shopper. My trips are normally $10-$20, so spending $44 at once was a little shocking for me. But, between my husband, kids and I, we eat 6 eggs for breakfast – so a dozen eggs doesn’t last long in our house. I stock up when they are under $1. I have been craving hamburgers recently (I usually do while pregnant – the iron, maybe?) so the stock up priced beef was awesome. Since Wednesday, we’ve eaten all the broccoli, half the bananas and are having sweet potatoes tonight. I pretty much stick to buying in-season or on sale produce. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Vintage Seltzer and always try to stock up when its on sale. I am slightly addicted to ice cream and have a new obsession with Magic Shell topping . . . . and since they were FREE after coupon, I couldn’t say no :)

While I do use coupons buy items that come in boxes, like cake mixes (in my opinion, they taste the best!) taco shells, crackers, granola bars and fruit snacks – I am happiest when I can save money buying “perimeter” grocery items – meat, dairy, bakery and produce.

How about you? What are your tips and tricks to eating healthy and using coupons?

My Harris Teeter Super Double Shopping Trip(s)!!

IMG_20130817_105346

Here is a recap of my Harris Teeter Super Doubles shopping trip(s) I’ve made this week :) I think we’re done, whew.

The kids and I made it an adventure each morning since it is (weirdly) one of their favorite places to go. I was happy with how much I saved, and the kids were happy to get their “tookie” after each visit.

What we got:
(15) Classico Pasta Sauce

(12) 3 Musketeers
(10) Johnson’s Baby Shampoo
(6) Old El Paso Taco Shells
(6) Trident Gum
(4) Betty Crocker Cake Mix
(4) Skippy Peanut Butter*
(4) Bailey’s Coffee Creamer
(4) Kikkoman’s Soy Sauce
(4) Sensible Portions Veggie Straws
(4) Eight O’Clock Coffee*
(2) Mentos Gum
(2) Mueller Veggie Pasta
(2) Ken’s Buffalo Marinade
(2) Mrs. Butterworth
(2) Johnson’s Baby Powder
(2) Post Fruity Pebbles
(2) Gillette Shave Gel
(2) Gushers Fruit Snacks
(2) Ghirardelli Chocolate Bars
(2) Imagine Organic Soup
(2) Wisk Laundry Detergent*
(2) Mott’s For Tots
(2) Ocean Spray Citrus
(1) 5 Hour Energy
(1) Febreze
(1) Nestea 12pk
(1) Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant
(1) Dawn Dish Detergent
(1) Cascade

TOTAL SPENT: $45.18 ($.43 each)
TOTAL VALUE: $306.02 (a savings of 85%)

In addition, I have a $5 Saving Star Deposit on the way and another $2.00 Catalina to use, too. So maybe there WILL be one more trip to the store ;)

I definitely made some mistakes this week. Like, buying white sauce instead of red sauce (it didn’t print a Catalina). And, not double checking that I actually gave the cashier all my coupons. I forgot to use my 3 Musketeers coupons the first time . . .which is why I ended up with so many, haha. Some of my ZVRs didn’t come off, and I let it go – the customer service desk was SO busy and I figured it wasn’t worth the $.50 to ask for a receipt adjustment. Also, I can’t find two bottles of shave gel and a deodorant that I KNOW I bought :( Lastly, a few of my coupons didn’t double like I thought they would, so my savings were a little less than I expected . . . but overall I was REALLY happy with what I got.

How about you? Have a good Super Doubles week? Make any mistakes?

My Harris Teeter Shopping Trip

I ran up to Harris Teeter yesterday to see if they had any awesome $.79 Skippy peanut butter left and pick up a few more things I wanted. While the peanut butter shelves were empty, I did find some Skippy Natural – Crunchy (my son’s favorite) on an end cap elsewhere and grabbed six of them. I was also super excited to find a cart full of marked down canned tomatoes, a staple in this house. The cashier allowed me to use all six of my PB coupons in one transaction, and I had a $10 off $50 coupon that I was sent in the mail (right after the Kroger announcement. Convenient, yes?)

So, after my six coupons and $10 off, I spent $46. 18 (a savings of over 60%) – not too bad for meat, cheese, produce and a few shelf items! It just goes to show that couponing is not all about convenience foods – you really can save money buying fresh foods too :)

My Harris Teeter Shopping Trip:

(1) Bag of Bananas (produce re-wrap)
(5) Smithfield Bacon
(6) Skippy Peanut Butter
(5) HT Shredded Cheese
(1) HT Butter
(5) HT Chicken Breast (2lb package)
(6) Canned Tomatos
(1) Loaf of Bread

TOTAL: $46. 18

I also made sure to grab a raincheck for the Skippy Natural – Creamy peanut butter (my favorite) that they were out of – while I hope I can find four more jars this week (to use up my last few coupons) I’ll happily hang on to the raincheck for another date when Skippy is NOT on sale and we need peanut butter :)
