Happy Saturday! I am having a super busy weekend. I spent part of my Saturday at the Renaissance Hotel in Charlotte at the @Celebrate Life 08 Health Fair hosted by Jeannette Gregory. Jeanette is a breast cancer survivor and has a wonderful testimony as to God’s faithfulness and healing.
My shopping trips this weekend included 3 stores: Bi-LO, Harris Teeter and Publix. Here is what I got:
Bi-Lo: I spent $7.35 for $104.21 worth of groceries, saving 93%. I used a $10/$40 Harris Teeter coupon on this trip.
FREE PLUS OVERAGE: (10) Robutussin Cough Medicine (used 10 $3 manufacturer coupons and (5) $5/2 Publix coupons)
FREE: (1) Southern Home Big Roll Single Paper Towel, (1) dozen Southern Home Eggs
$1.00 or Less: (1) Minute Maid Lemonade Refrigerated Juice for 67 cents (used $1 Bilo coupon) and (3) Pillsbury Grand Biscuits for 98 cents each
$2.00 or Less: (1) Crisco Extra Virgin Olive Oil for $1.99 (used $1 Target coupon)
Harris Teeter: I did two trips to Harris Teeter. On my first trip I spent $11.14 for $116.08 worth of groceries, saving 90%. I used a $10/$50 Recyclebank Harris Teeter coupon, $5/$25 Dollar General coupon, $3.50 in CVS Extracare Bucks, and $1 off meat item Publix coupon and a $2 off ground beef Harris Teeter coupon.

For my second trip I had to go to the Tega Cay location because I wanted to buy the a $25 gas card for $20. You earn this for every $40 you spend at that location. Therefore, I spent $22.22 for $40.62, including the gas card. This is a great way to save on gas, especially if you buy the Shell card and use your Fuelperks from Bi-Lo. I used a $5/$30 Publix coupon and also purchased 2 Organic Valley Milks for $1.99 each, 1 Clorox Bleach on clearance for $1.29 and 3 Tic Tacs for 49 cents each.
Publix: My trip to Publix was to really check out and do some comparison shopping. I also grabbed new coupons. They also have some $5/$30 Publix coupons at the customer service desk so make sure you ask for one. I spent $10.98 for $26.87 worth of groceries, saving 59%.
I got (2) Silk Fruit & Protein and (1) Pepperidge Farm Jingos Crackers for $1, (2) half-gallon Publix Sweet Tea for 80 cents each, (2) bags of Eat Smart Broccoli for $1 each, onions and a London Broil ($2.99/lb.). I used the $1 off meat Publix coupon on it.
There are so many rumors swirling in coupon world about Harris Teeter doing super doubles or super triples. All I can say is, get your coupons ready because this coming Wednesday will be a great week of shopping.
