Happy Saturday!!!!! I spent part of my day today with @Coupon Mama AKA @Travise Smith at her coupon class. She asked me people to share on saving money at Harris Teeter with coupons. I had a fun time (laughter is good for the soul) indeed! I met some fantastic people and hope they learned some great things to start saving money, not just at Harris Teeter, but every store they shop. When I attend one of Coupon Mama’s coupon classes, I am always reminded that my coupons are a great way to witness to others about Jesus. Travise is a FANTASTIC coupon teacher and I truly think of her as my “coupon mama” because I have learned so much from her. I was very honored to be a part and share what I know about Harris Teeter. Plus, the cost of the class was a fundraiser for the @Walk to End Alzheimer’s organization!
Now for my shopping today. I made two trips to Harris Teeter and Bi-Lo.
Harris Teeter: I spent $48.25 for $173.63 worth of items, saving 71%. I used a $10/$40 Harris Teeter coupon as well as some competitor coupons on this trip. I also got a $3 Catalina coupon on this trip for purchasing the Cottonelle Toilet Tissue. I also grabbed three packs of meat on mark down.
FREE PLUS OVERAGE: (1) All Laundry Detergent — I used a $4 off any All Laundry that I got in the mail from BJ’S (yes my HT accepts these as competitor coupons). I purchased one of them instead of two so I could overage towards my other items. Thanks to @Debra Hargrove for that tip because I forgot I had that coupon.
$1.00 or Less: (6) Pioneer Gravy Mix for 8 cents each, (2) Morningstar Frozen Entrees for 49 cents each, (8) Buitoni Pasta for 49 cents each, (2) HT Sliced Mushrooms for 77 cents each, (4) Campbell’s Condensed Soups for 80 cents each, (2) HT dozen eggs for 99 cents each, (5) Rice A Roni for $1 each
$1.00 or more: (5) Ragu Pasta Sauce for $1.43 (no coupons but we are all out of pasta sauce and it was B2G3), (3) Cottonelle Bath Tissue for $3.99 each (I used 3 $1 peelies and (3) $1 Walgreen Store coupons (they expire today), (4) Pompeian Olive Oil for $3.49 — I saw these were on clearance for $4.49 each. This is a great deal on olive oil!
Now here is a big upcoming announcement for all Harris Teeter shoppers who are in the Publix market area. I am sure you know by now that Publix will be opening in Fort Mill and Indian Land, SC in October. I heard that this coming Wednesday, 10/3, HT shoppers in those markets will get an announcement about some great things coming our way. This is all because of Publix coming to our area. Competition is good! I am not sure what it is exactly so check your email this Wednesday, 10/3 to find out. I am also planing to do a blog post about Publix so stay tuned for that.
Bi-Lo: I spent $46.04 for $97.76 worth of items, saving 53%. I used a $10/$40 Harris Teeter coupon, a $5/$35 meat purchase Bilo coupon, the $3 Catalina I got earlier from Harris Teeter for purchasing the Cottonelle and some competitor coupons (thanks to whoever left them at Food Lion) on this trip. I also got a $3 Catalina for purchasing 4 Crystal Light Drink Sticks.

Don’t forget about the Unilever promotion I told you about earlier if you have men in your life that love the Dove Men Body wash (read more here). Also, remember the $10 gas card I should have got from Harris Teeter for the General Mills Stock Up promotion about a month ago? Well, I got my $10 gas card in the mail today.
What deals have you found this week? Of course, I will be getting the Dove Bodywash (I did a special order) and I forgot about using my 50 Heinz Ketchup coupons at Harris Teeter to get it for 99 cents each. Those coupons expire 9/30 so I need to use them tomorrow.
