Harris Teeter Super Doubles....

Who took advantage last week and went to the Harris Teeter for SUPER DOUBLES??

I usually make at least one trip. This week I made two, the most desired item on the list was Mrs. Butterworth's Syrup and  Purina Dog Food at B1G1. How could I pass it up at $0.09 and breakfast for dinner was on the menu. 

Each trip I spent about $35 but saved on one trip $45 and the second $55. I tried to go at off times so that I wouldn't have to contend with long lines or people. I went early Saturday and after work (I get off at 3) one day during the week. The only item I noticed being low the syrup but since the 3 of us only need one that is all I cared about getting. 

Anyone have any other great finds? Who is going to try and do Lowe's Super Doubles? I would, maybe, if one was closer.

Time has flown

Wow what a difference a year makes.

I have graduated with two degrees with honors in May 2013. I have been working since January, and going back for my bachelors degree. My sister moved in, my sister moved out.

Life as "normal". Whatever that means these days. Lord knows that this week has been a challenge with back to school stuff in full swing not only for me but my sister.

My favorite blonde headed three-year-old is loving all the attention she gets from her aunt. She talking up a storm and pointing out everything. Her favorite food of the moment is a Taco Bell cheese roll-up. We can be driving down the road and sees a billboard or the sign on the side of the high way and pipes up with, "Mommy, Taco Bell right there." As she emphatically is pointing out the window at the exit. Now if we could only tackle the potty training monster. I know, I know it will come.

That is a condensed version of the year, how has your month been?

Super Doubles

So far I haven't seen anything that has overly impressed me with Super Doubles at Harris Teeter. I don't have a Lowes Foods near by but it has been said that they will also be having Super Doubles.

Here are a couple of links to some of the lists I generally use to create a list or use their coupon database.

Let me know if you find anything good.

Rite Aid and Bi-Lo trips


I have been out and about shopping for diapers. Rite Aid has a deal that couldn't be beat. I made three trips in the last two days. Total before savings: $65.94 Total OOP: $39.94 + tax, which translates to 52.7% savings. That includes a cd of pictures for my photography class and 2 candy bars that were on sale but no coupon, and 6, yes, 6 packages of diapers. 5 pkgs of size 4 and 1 size 1 (for a baby shower).  I got the $10 Up+ Reward once, and the 5 Up+ Reards twice. I did use them on the other purchases I made. So I am back out of UP+ rewards but totally worth it for the diapers. I will also continue to go to Rite Aid for the cd for photography. I am taking pictures on a 35 mm but need them converted since it is a digital photography class. $5 beats the $9 I was paying at another competitor.

I was orginally going to Bi-Lo to use the $0.75/1 Pampers wipes coupon with my rain check. My raincheck was for bogo. But while I was there I checked on cheese and coke products. They were running a deal purchase 3 Coke 12 pks at 3/$10 and receive a 8 pk of Powerade for free. Woohoo runs through my brain, I've got 3 free coupons for Coke from my Coke Rewards. So I got 3 Coke 12 pks plus the Powerade for FREE!! The wipes ended up being $2.40 for 4 packages of 72 wipes (in each pkg) that is $0.008/wipe. I also purchased Kraft Cheese and the new Kraft Takes that are in the dairy section. The damage there was before savings: $62.62 after savings Total OOP: $ 17.69 (incl tax) with savings of 72%.

Not to shabby in trying to get ready for a 2 year old's birthday. How has your week been?
