Doublers shopping

I just sat down and figured out my savings from my 3 hours shopping trip and I was so excited and exhausted! I calculated using the sale prices not the regular store price because I probably would have bought it anyway if it was one sale. Before coupons I would have spent $108.62 with coupons I spent $27.73 and walked away with a $3.00 catalina. I'm not going to post a picture of everything I got because that is not the point of this post. My point is that I worked hard to save our family money and that if you average out the savings of $80.89 than I made $26.96 and hour. That is a darn good wage for a part time job don't you think. Have you ever figured out what you make an hours?

Old Time Coupons

When I went to Safeway today I saw these two coupons shoved way back on the shelf so I reached in and grabbed then. I was surprised to see that they were quite old and don't have an expiration date. One of them has a TV schedule on the back and the TV shows listed are Growing Pains, Too Close for Comfort, Price is Right at 7:00 LOL How old do you think these are? The Funny things is that I don't want to use them is that weird I alway want to use coupons :)

Update I just looked up the TV show Too Close for Comfort and it aired from 1980-1986 WOW even if this coupon was from 1986 it is at least 24 years old. Which is old in coupons years not people years of coarse!

Rite Aid Free Cover Girl

I decided that with Rite Aid having a BOGO sale on Covergirl Makeup and there being a BOGO coupon out there I would order some off of ebay. I only paid .40 each including shipping so a screaming deal!

2 Covergirl True blend coverup $9.99 each
2 Covergirl perfect point self sharpening eye pencil $5.99 each
2 2% milk $1.99 each
subtotal= $35.94

-(2) BOGO Free coupons
-(1) 5/20 from video values
-(2) BOGO from Rite Aid sale

The cashier adjusted one of my coupons down .07 so my total was ZERO she was so nice .. thanks Lynn :)
I absolutely love this store and Lynn (Indian Trail Store) has always been extremely helpful so I gave her one of my BOGO Covergirl coupons as a thank you for always being so patient and nice to me while I'm trying to save a buck.

Buying these coupons on ebay was well worth the money and I now have a great little stock pile for my girls.

Albertson's Kellogg's Cereal Double Catalina

Well I was at Albertson's this morning probably like a lot of you trying to get some Capri Suns lol and I ran into a newbie couponer friend of mine and she told me that she had just bought 4 boxes of Kellogg's cereal and that it printed out two catalina's one for $4.00 and one for $3.00. Well being the venturesome person I am I decided to try it here is what I got.

4 boxed of Mini Shredded Wheat $2.50 each
-(2) $1.50/2 from a recent RP or here
oop $7.00 (this is not a price I would normally pay but I thought if I get back the $7.00 in cats it would be a wash)
AND... a $4.00 and a $3.00 cat printed

I then did this tx 2 more times and the nice part was that I didn't even need doublers
4 boxed of Mini Shredded Wheat
-(2) $1.50/2 from a recent RP
- $7.00 in cats from 1st tx

I also did one tx with Fruit Loops and use the (2) 1/2 from here
and doubled one so it would end up being $7.00 so I could just pay with my cats the cashier was nice and adjusted my coupon down so the the total was 0. So if you need some cereal this works out to be a pretty good deal.

I then rolled this into the Arrowhead water deal that Happy2bfrugal posted and my OOP was only $4.98 and I got back the $5.00 Catalina. What a day!
