Great News! Harris Teeter Will Be Doing Super Doubles January 5 – 11, 2011

Great news to kick off 2011! I just found out that Harris Teeter will be doing Super Double Coupons next week from Jan. 5 – 11! Twenty coupons per day will be doubled with a face value up to $1.98 (great time to pull all of those $1.50 off coupons and turn them into $3.00 off). I will have plenty of coupon matchups and deals coming your way next week!!!

Since most of the coupon sites will be reseting their coupons tomorrow, you may want to go ahead and print the current December coupon offerings that may be helpful to you next week during Super Doubles. Click here for a great list of coupon sites! 

Also, go ahead and purge all of the coupons that expire today (12/31).  There are plenty that are expiring and it will be helpful for you to not have them in your organizer when you are trying to get organized for Super Doubles.

Conquer the Clutter Series – Year End Donation – Out With the Old, In With the New…Year!

With the end of the year approaching, I was prompted yesterday to load up the back of my car and take the items to Goodwill that I cleaned out during this fall’s Conquer the Clutter series.  Out with the old, in with the new…year! I took all my boys with me to donate the items as I feel it is important to show them that it is important to GIVE, especially after they RECEIVED so much over Christmas!

My Conquer the Clutter Series will definitely continue in the new year (afterall, it is an ongoing process), so look out for upcoming posts and follow along at your own home if you would like!

$60 Weekly Grocery Challenge – A Few Harris Teeter Deals to Wrap Up 2010 – Spent $14 for $52 Worth of Groceries!

What is the $60 Weekly Grocery Challenge?

Each week my goal is to spend no more than $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 $14.44 (plus tax) for $52.55 Worth of Groceries!

Since I am still stocked up on produce, meats, juice, etc. from last week’s pre-Christmas grocery shopping trip, I only had to “fill in” this week with diapers, milk and the bargains. I spent way over my $60 goal last week ($101) due to items for Christmas baking, cooking, entertaining, etc. and only spent $14 this week, so it actually averages out just under my $60 goal per week. It always seems to work out over time!

Conquer the Clutter Series – Get Rid of the “Stack;” Use a Breadbox to Store Kitchen Papers

I always manage to have a little (o.k. sometimes ridiculously large) “stack” of stuff on my kitchen bar.  It has my calendar, school papers, recipes I want to try, to-do lists and that type of thing.  Problem? I hate stacks! So, I can’t tell you how excited I was to receive this breadbox for Christmas from my wonderful sister-in-law!  She has one in her kitchen to “house” her papers and I had previously commented before what a great idea that is. 

It allows you to “cover up” all of the loose papers, but still have them handy when you need them. And, you get a neat, clean look in your kitchen.  Win, win!

Grocery Challenge “Christmas Edition” – Harris Teeter and Food Lion Deals & Coupon Match-ups

Hi everyone!  Notice that this week’s grocery deal post is NOT entitled, “$60 Weekly Grocery Challenge.” Instead, lets just call this “The Grocery Challenge, Christmas Edition.” This is why…

In the midst of all of the Christmas gatherings, entertaining, baking, traveling, etc., I knew that I wouldn’t be able to stick to my usual $60.  Instead, I had hoped to spend $100 and came in at $101.  Honestly, I was happy with that.

Even though it is definitely the most I have spent on groceries for one week this entire year, I have to remember it is the holidays, I have special recipes to make, items to bake, the whole family will be home more and post holiday, I will be right back to my $60 weekly grocery shopping.  It is all good! This week, I still used LOTS of coupons, shopped store sales and saved $81.13!  

Here is the Breakdown:

Harris Teeter – Spent $56.08, Saved $56.76
Food Lion – Spent $45.59, Saved $24.37

Total – Spent $101.67, Saved $81.13

Below are the best deals I found this week at both Harris Teeter and Food Lion.  I have quite a few internet printable coupons listed below; however, be sure to also check out the available internet printable coupons from Coupons.com, Redplum and Smartsource that may match up with your grocery shopping list.
