Harris Teeter Super Double Coupons – Day 1 – $3.73 (Plus Tax) for $82 Worth!

Are you as pumped as I am that today is the first day of super double coupons at Harris Teeter? I had a fun shopping trip this morning! For all of the items pictured above, my total was $3.73 (plus tax) for $82+ worth! Deli meat – check! Milk – check! Cereal – check! Frozen Veggies – check!  Chocolate – check! It was great knowing that my total for ALL of it equaled what one box of cereal would typically cost.  

However, I will say that today I experienced a huge lesson in couponing.  Make sure all of your coupons get scanned and your receipt is correct.  Since I preplanned my shopping trip last night, I knew my total should have been under $4.00. However, I was charged $9.73.  I knew it seemed high (if I can call it that when I just got my grocery bill down from over $82). But, I knew it was “higher than expected.” I went ahead and paid that amount as I didn’t want to hold up the line behind me. Plus, I had a newspaper reporter with me who is working on a story about saving big money on groceries through couponing and had followed me on my grocery trip, so I didn’t want to be a total pain at check out. Sure enough, after checking over my receipt I was charged twice for one item, only 18 of my 20 coupons were scanned (which resulted in a $4.00 mistake since it is super doubles and two $1.00 off coupons were not doubled), and I had a FREE coupon for the large Coffeemate and only a portion of the purchase price was deducted (not due to a limit on the coupon because I wasn’t even close to it).  Bottom line, once these mistakes were sorted through, my grand total was $3.73 (plus tax), not the $9.73 I was charged.

Money Saving Monday – The Grand Total for Easter Basket Goodies This Year Was…

Did you know that the Easter Bunny uses coupons?  The one that visits my house does 🙂  He is happy to report that all of the “treats” pictured above only totaled $3.00 for ALL THREE BASKETS.  Most everything was free using coupons and CVS ExtraBucks. (My three boys each also received a toy that is not included in this total).

The Bunny’s biggest tip: He plans ahead.  He started picking up items at grocery and drug stores a month or two ago when he saw good coupon matchups for free or nearly free items and just stashed them away in a bag. He recommends that you could also do this for Halloween, Christmas, birthday treat bags or other times when you need a variety of sweet treats. I agree.  My thought is if you can get the exact same outcome, but spend A LOT less money, then go for it!

I hope all of my readers had a Happy Easter!

$60 Weekly Grocery Challenge – Saved $131 at Harris Teeter (My Highest Savings Ever in One Shopping Trip)!

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 $57.16 (plus tax) for $190.77 worth of groceries!  

Just got home from a fun grocery shopping trip (yes, I think grocery shopping is fun.  It is like a game to see how much I can save each week).  Today I saved $131.39 using my VIC card and coupons(big woo hoo)! This is the MOST I have ever saved on a grocery shopping trip.  I may sound like a broken record because two weeks ago I said that when I saved $99 and last week I said it again when I saved $114.  But, this week sets a brand new record! Here is my receipt 🙂

To help with my savings, I redeemed another $10 off any $50 purchase at Harris Teeter coupon that I received 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. Update – A reader just let me know that this reward is not currently available.  However, I remember last month around this time it disappeared for a week or so and reappeared at the beginning of the new month.  Maybe it hit its monthly limit of requests?

Food Friday – Peach & Raspberry Melba Shortbread Bars (Simple Recipe from Southern Living)

When looking for new recipes to try, I like two things – simplicity and pictures.  A recipe might catch my attention, but I start to zone out when it starts mentioning ingredients that I have never heard of.  Plus, I have found I am much more likely to try a new recipe, if it has a picture with it.

Recently, while working out I was reading through the April issue of Southern Living magazine and spotted a recipe that I just HAD to try – Peach & Raspberry Melba Shortbread Bars.  Notice the irony, I am “working out” and spotting sweets I can make at a later date. I read through the list of ingredients and it seemed simple enough, but looked impressive.  So, yesterday, I gave it a try and it truly is very, very good. Southern Living did not disappoint!

Peach and Raspberry Melba Shortbread Bars

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup butter/margarine
1 cup peach preserves
6 tsp. raspberry preserves
1/2 cup sliced almonds
Garnish – powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix flour, sugar and salt in the bowl.  Add in butter (the mixture will be crumbly).  Take out one cup of this flour mixture for a later step.

Lightly grease a 9″ X 9″ or 11″ X 7″ pan.  Press the remaining flour mixture onto the bottom on the pan.

 Bake at 350 degrees for 25 – 30 minutes or until lightly browned.

Spread peach preserves over crust in the pan.  Dollop raspberry preserves by 1/2 teaspoon full over peach preserves (by the looks of my picture below, my dollops were heaps – oops).

Sprinkle the 1 cup reserved flour mixture over preserves and sprinkle with almonds.

 

Bake at 350 degrees for 35 – 40 minutes or until golden brown.  Let cool one hour on wire rack.  Garnish with powdered sugar.

Here is the final product…

Easter Candy Deals – FREE Snickers Easter Eggs and Printable Easter Candy Coupons

Easter is just around the corner and Coupons.com has just released some Easter candy coupons that may come in handy. 

For example, I got FREE Snickers eggs (pictured above) at CVS this week using the $1.00 off any two Mars Easter products coupon .  They are on sale for $.50 each (through 4/9), so if you purchase four and redeem two of these coupons, you can receive four for free!

The M & M eggs pictured above are $.99 each at CVS and Target, so if you use the $1.00 off any two Mars Easter products coupon , you can purchase them for $.49 each.

Also at CVS, you can get Peeps for $.49 each (through 4/9) by using this $1.00 off two Peeps coupon. The Peeps coupon is a Facebook coupon and is available when you “like” them.

(Note –  If you plan to shop at CVS, don’t forget that April 1 began a new quarter. So, when you visit the store, scan your CVS card at the store kiosk and it will print the CVS ExtraBucks you earned from your Jan-Mar quarterly spending).

Other Easter candy coupons available are:

$.50 off two Skittles or Starburst
$.55 off one bag of Nestle Nesteggs
$.55 off one bag of Wonka Jellybeans

$60 Weekly Grocery Challenge – Spent $64.09 (Plus Tax) for $165.66 Worth (Saved $99.08)!

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 $64.09 (plus tax) for $165.66 worth of groceries!  

I am pretty sure that today represents the highest amount that I have ever saved at Harris Teeter on a single shopping trip – $99.08 (after handing over my VIC card and the stack of coupons)! I sort of wish I had used one more $1.00 off coupon today to push me over the $100 mark in savings 🙂 Here is my receipt: 

 In addition to the $99.08 in savings, I also received a coupon at checkout for a FREE gallon of milk during my next shopping trip.  I received this for purchasing three boxes of Kellogg’s cereal in one transaction.  This promotion is valid through April 9. On my deals’ list below, you will find a printable $1.00 off coupon for Frosted Mini-Wheats cereal, which are buy one, get one free this week.  This will help you save big on both cereal and milk (which is now $3.99+ gallon – yikes!) 

Today, I also redeemed the $10 off any $50 purchase at Harris Teeter coupon that I received 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!
