After all my adventures at Publix and Harris Teeter last week, I took this week off from any trips to the store.  My grocery budget went instead to buying the last of our books for this years home school curriculum.  My extra time then went to trying to get my house back in order after being gone for two trips in a row.

I did rack up on all the free photo deals this week.  So I guess I was still grabbing deals, just not groceries.

How did you do this week?  Leave a comment or a link to your savings post.

      Wow you did great!  I got $137 worth of groceries for $37 at Harris Teeter during the Super Double…I just love saving.  I was in Savannah, GA yesterday and at Kroger they had Suave deodorants for $1.06 a piece.  I used the $.50/1 coupon that was in last weeks paper and racked up on deodorant for only $.06 a piece

      I didn’t plan too well but i found some great deals anyway.  I got deodorant for my dh for 3.5c each and 4 boxes of cinnamon toast crunch that the store paid me $1 each to take home, gain dishwashing liquid for 19c. each plus lots more!  I got lots of goodies by the best was the cereal, my dd found the extra store coupons that made it a money maker.

      wishing I had a store that doubled, but stacking is good…after getting the B1G1 at Publix and using both store and manuf coupons, I spent 30.76 and saved 72.31…

      I was inspired by one of the pictures to run out to Publix at 9pm.
      I ended up with 6 Resolve, 4 Sundowner Magnesium, Calcium, zinc,
      and 4 coffemate creamers and Publix owed me 12 cents.

Also got 6 deodorants for free!!! All told, I spent $65 and saved $106!!!!! Oh, and when I stopped by CVS just to price check some med’s I found childrens Mucinex on clearance for $2.37!!!

    • Cheri (newbie to couponing)

      I went to Louisville Wags today and got $305.91 worth of product for $122.62 saving $183.29! I’ve only been couponing for 6 months, but love it. The cashier wouldn’t let me stack 2 Wags Register Q’s saying that they we’re considered Manf Q’s not Wags Q’s; if I’d been allowed to use those 2 coupons it would have saved $3 more.  Has anyone else run into this issue at Wag? I didn’t push the issue too much since she did let me check out in 3 diff transactions to use my RR. Thanks for all of your coupon matchups, they make saving so easy! Woohoo!!

      I didn’t buy any food this week. We did get apples, grapes, swiss chard, and tomatoes from our garden, however!

    • Good Job Everyone! Hope everybody could save money on your shopping trip :)

      I got a bunch of free stuff at CVS this week, too.  Candy bar, bodywash, bandaids, and batteries.  I used all CVS coupons, and this was my first trip to actually pay zero dollars!  Plus, I got one dollar back!  I was soooo excited!

    • Carolineandlily

      Publix had some of their GM cereal B1G1 last week.  When I got to the store I saw that they had some coupons for $2.00 GM cereal, so I got 10 boxes of cereal for free!!! (All they had in the right size, I did give 2 boxes to a man that asked why I was buying so much creal;D)  Remember to always shop for coupons when your at the store.
