Happy weekend to you!!! I started my Saturday off pretty early. This Saturday I spent part of my day shopping with two friends from my church – World Worship Church – @Carolyn Love Cuthbertson and Florence “Flo” Paschal – who is one of the best dressed women I know – is finally starting to want o learn how to save on everything using coupons. She did not have any coupons to shop with and wanted to take advantage of some deals so I was more than willing to share my coupons and to help her shop and save money today. After paying $.01 cent today for Smart Balance Milk and Butter with some coupons I gave her, she is definitely going to start using coupons…..lol.
So although today I primarily was helping Carolyn and Flo get great deals, of course I had to sang a few for myself. So here we go with what I got:
Harris Teeter: Super doubles continues at Harris Teeter. Of course the hot item today was the Gain Laundry Detergent on EVIC for $3.77. Also, I bought some other Proctor & Gamble products so that I can take advantage of a rebate to get a free 2 piece rice cooker/tamale steamer and cookbook. Here is the rebate form for more details. I spent $12.55 for $97.24, saving 87%. I used (2) $5/$25 Dollar General coupon on this trip because I did my transaction for my P&G rebate separate so I can submit the receipt. I also used (2) $1 UP REWARDS I had from Rite Aid. Here is what I got:
FREE: (1) Coffeemate (a free coupon I got from a Coffemate offer on Facebook)
$1.00 or Less: (2) Bandaids for 50 cents each, (1) Johnson & Johnson Adhesive Tape for 62 cents, (2) bottles of Gain Laundry Detergent for 77 cents (I had a (2) $1 manufacturer coupons, $1 EVIC, and $1 Bi-Lo Laundry purchase coupon), (2) 3 pack Dial Soap for 97 cents each (I gave these to Flo), (1) Always Infinity for 99 cents, (3) Febreze Air Effects for 99 cents each
$1.00 to $2.00: (3) Gain Fabric Softener for $1.49 each, (1) Crest Rinse for $1.74, (2) Starbucks Coffee for $2.97
The Airwick and Honey Mustard Dipping sauce were gifts from Carolyn….thank you Carolyn!
Lowes Foods: Lowes Foods was the next stop on our coupon excursion. I am really loving the Dole Fruit Shakers and we arrived at the store just in time to get some out of the box (we didn’t clear the shelf…lol). I grabbed a few other items as well. I spent $22.84 for $58.20 worth of items, saving 61%.
I got (8) Dole Fruit Shakers for 15 cents each, (8) V8 Splash Drinks for $1.50 each, chicken drumsticks for 99 cents and some produce using a 10% off Lowes Foods produce coupon.
Bi-Lo: My trip to Bi-Lo was primarily to grab eggs on sale for 88 cents a dozen and few other items. I spent $25.27 for $41.71 worth of items, saving 39%. I didn’t hit my 50% goal, but I only used 1 coupon on this trip, but I bought items that were on sale.
I got (1) FREE bottle of Sun Laundry Detergent using a $1.50 Bi-Lo Laundry purchase coupon, (4) Kraft BBQ Sauce for 79 cents each, (4) dozen eggs for 88 cents each, leaf lettuce for 99 cents. Normally, when I need to purchase things that I don’t have coupons for I purchase them from Bi-Lo to help increase my Fuelperks for gas. Plus, I still have cash in the grocery envelope! Special thank you to Damien, one of the managers, who gave me lots of Bi-Lo coupons today. That was how I was able to get the Sun Laundry Detergent for free today. He said that so many people leave the coupons and he saved some just for me. How nice of him to do that! Don’t those people know they are throwing money away? Well, I will gladly take their money any day. Also, I finally got 4 Bi-Lo coupons to print for me as well because I had not gotten any so far!!!
So another fabulous weekend of shopping! The best part for me was not that I personally got some great deals, but that I was able to share and give coupons and shopping tips to two wonderful and fantastic ladies today – Carolyn and Flo. We had a great time shopping together!
