What is the $60 Weekly Grocery Challenge?
Each week my goal is to spend approximately $60 for food, drinks, groceries, toiletries, diapers and medicine for my family of five. Then, I report on this blog the items that I bought, the best sales and coupon match-ups that I found and hopefully by doing so, help you stretch your family’s grocery budget, as well!
This week will be a little different than most due to the fact I will be grocery shopping more than once since it is TRIPLE COUPON week at Harris Teeter! I will post a picture below of the items I get during each shopping trip and will continue to update my coupon matchup list throughout the week as new coupons are released. Happy shopping!
Harris Teeter Triple Coupon Shopping Trip Day #1
Spent $3.82 (plus tax) and saved $53.16!
The hardest part about today was trying to decide which 20 coupons to use today since I have so many I would like to redeem during triples :) For the list of coupon matchups that I used today and plan to use throughout the week, click here!
Harris Teeter Triple Coupon Shopping Trip Day #2
Spent $4.45 (plus tax) and saved $50.30!
Most of the items I picked up today were either free or cost very little. Of the total $4.45 spent, $3.00 of that amount was on the two bags of Sun Chips ($1.50 per bag). But, my family loves Sun Chips and you can’t ever find them that cheap, so I included them in my shopping trip today. However, if you take those out of my picture above, everything else only came to a grand total of $1.45!

Reader Pictures – Harris Teeter Triple Coupon Shopping Trips
I love seeing the great deals my readers are finding during triples! Here is a picture a reader submitted from her and another family member’s combined trip. The combined total was $28 for $162 worth of groceries.
Here is another reader pic. Her total dropped to $78 after VIC savings and then down to $34 after her coupons were tripled. Great job ladies!
