Homemaking Mom In the News – Greensboro News & Record Article, “Couponers Slash Their Grocery Bills”

The Greensboro News & Record published an article on Sunday, May 29th entitled “Couponers Slash Their Grocery Bills.” I was one of the featured couponers that was highlighted (you may remember that I mentioned a newspaper reporter followed me on a Harris Teeter super double coupon shopping trip last month).

Entertaining With Ease – Create a Watermelon Bowl

Creating a watermelon bowl is an easy, inexpensive way to add color to your display of food when entertaining this summer! Here are the simple steps: 

  1. Slice the watermelon in half. I purchased the watermelon for $3.99 and was able to make two watermelon bowls since I had both halves to work with. Inexpensive and attractive!
  2. Use a melon ball maker cooking tool to scoop out watermelon balls and place in another bowl.
  3. Once you have gotten to the bottom of the watermelon half, scoop out any remaining melon so that you just have the rind.
  4. Refill the watermelon bowl with your watermelon balls.

CVS Tip – Pick Up a FREE Greenbag Tag This Week

This week when you scan your CVS ExtraCare card, you will receive a coupon for a FREE CVS Greenbagtag.  It printed for me the second time I scanned my card at the kiosk.  Keep scanning your CVS card until it prints.

What is a Greenbagtag?  It is a scannable tag that you attach to any reusable shopping bag. Each time you shop and bring your own reusable shopping bag, have the cashier scan the tag.  You will earn a $1.00 Extra Buck every 4th shopping trip by doing this. 

Usually the Greenbagtags must be purchased for $.99; however, this week you will receive a FREE one.  If you are a frequent CVS shopper this is an EASY way to start racking up Extra Bucks!

$60 Weekly Grocery Challenge – Spent $61.68 for $155.92 Worth at Harris Teeter

  

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!

How Did I Do This Week? 

Harris Teeter – Spent $61.68 (plus tax) for $155.92 Worth!

In addition to many of the coupons posted below, I also redeemed the following coupons:

– FREE Cottonelle Wipes

– FREE Bag of Ore-Ida Sweet Potato Fries

– $10 off $50 Harris Teeter purchase coupon from Recyclebank. To view my post about this free program and how to quickly accumulate points to receive your $10 off $50 Harris Teeter purchase, click here! You can earn up to four of the Harris Teeter $10 off $50 purchase rewards per month.

– I also purchased a pound of strawberries from the produce markdown shelf.  They were only $1.00, still a day from their “sell by” date and I know they won’t last long at my house. Don’t forget to check for produce markdowns; you can find some great deals.  I also found a whole pineapple there marked down a week or two ago to only $1.00.  And, it was great!

Money Saving Monday – Final Harris Teeter Triple Coupon Trip, FREE Degree Deodorant at Target & $.49 Toilet Paper at Food Lion

After taking a break from triple coupons at Harris Teeter for the weekend, I was ready to go this morning for one final trip.  Good news?  For everything pictured, my total was only $2.25 (plus tax)!  My total prior to VIC and coupons was $35. 

Bad news?  My Harris Teeter store must have been hit hard over the weekend.  I had quite a few coupons I clipped from yesterday’s newspaper that I had hoped to use (i.e. Heinz ketchup, Breakstone’s cottage cheese doubles, Trop50 lemonade, etc.), but they were totally out of stock. 

No complaints, though, from me.  I feel lucky to have access to a store that offers triple coupons promotions and I certainly saved a ton of money and stocked up on many items. For any of you who plan to shop today or tomorrow prior to triples ending, click here to view my updated triple coupon matchup list! FREE Haribo gummy bears or Smucker’s grape jelly anyone? Also, you gotta love a $.49 bag of Fresh Express spinach.

 

Heading to Target?  You can pick up FREE Degree deodorant this week! Here’s how – the current price of the Degree deodorant is $1.97. Click here to print a manufacturer’s coupon for $1.00 off (it can be found under zip code 60051 in the personal care category) AND click here to print a Target store coupon for $1.00 off. When you stack both coupons, it makes it FREE!

You can also use the $1.00 off manufacturer’s coupon  to purchase the travel size men’s Degree deodorant at Walmart for FREE.

Yesterday’s (May 22) Sunday newspaper coupon insert included a coupon for $1.00 off any Marcal Small Steps item.  Food Lion carries these items and you can use the coupon to purchase a 4 pack of toilet paper for $.49 or to purchase a FREE roll of Marcal Small Steps paper towels.

$60 Weekly Grocery Challenge – My Harris Teeter Triple Coupon Shopping Trips 5/18 – 5/24

  

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!

 Click here to view my triple coupon matchups list so you can go pick up your very own basket of practically free items!

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!

Meal-time Monday – Fresh Cherry Crisp Dessert

Yesterday, my father-in-law gave us a big bowl of fresh cherries that he had picked from his orchard.  Not only were they already picked for us, but he also removed the seeds, as well.  Awesome! 

They are yummy to just eat fresh and we thought about freezing some of them (but, I don’t think they are going to last long enough to make it into freezer bags).  However, we used some of them to make this Fresh Cherry Crisp Dessert last night. It turned out so yummy and I would highly recommend it (but, I will warn you that it is hard to have just one helping)!

Fresh Cherry Crisp Dessert

Ingredients

  • 4 cups pitted sour cherries
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Topping

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup softened butter

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine cherries, 1 1/2 cups white sugar, and 4 tablespoons flour. Pour into 9×13 inch baking dish. Next, in a separate bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups flour, oats, and brown sugar. Mix well and spread over cherries.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for approximately 45 minutes (or until topping is golden brown).
