Not as good as previous deals.. BUT!!! I will take that. The chicken got me! I would not suggest stocking up on that deal. That is to high for that kind of sale. You are not really getting a deal.
Going back tonight to take advantage of the Pillbury and the General Mills deals.
This trip should be a very low OOP!
Just a tip… if you are close to a Harris Teeter and can go late (open 24 hours) , the store is pretty much to yourself and they are restocking, so you have a better chance of getting your FREEBIEs and CHEAPIEs!

Will let you all know how it works out tonight!

I love super Doubles!

Look for weekly, sometimes more often than that, posts here. I a posting pictures for you of my shopping trips. Yes, I already do that some, but what I want to do for you is tell you where I went, what I got, what coupons I used and my total out of pocket expense. That way you can duplicate exactly what I did.

CVS 2/11/2011

I also recieved a $10 off of my order for purchasing $35 worth of Unilever Products as well as $4 off of my order for purchasing 4 of the General Mills cereals. This helped to bring my total down by $14 dollars just by taking advantage of the store deals. Also had a $1 FL coupon off of my next order so right there is $15 dollars in free money to apply to my order.

So with all of that posted and said… I want you to know you can save money at Food Lion even though they don’t double. Now.. if you can save 65% at a store that does not double,, imagine what you can do at a store that does!!!!
So again..
Total Retail $ 150.33 Total OOP $ 63.07 total saved overall 65%.
You can do this too….

Well, I did pretty good at Rite Aid with the stay free b1/g1 deal.  My manufacturer q’s were max. of $6 on the free item.. they were priced at 6.99 so for the big packs I got for .50 each. The smaller packs were 3.00 and on my printables from a couple of weeks ago, the max was $3 on the free item. So they were .50 each as well. I also got two Gillette Proglide shave creams and 2 Gillette deo’s, used the b1/g1 free coupon on those.
Total Retail $87.82 OOP $ 10.90 Saved 90%!

Three stores tonight.. Walgreens, Rite Aid, and CVS!

Not to shabby!

Ok~~ for my Lowe’s food’s $30 challenge for myself today… well.. I went over.. just a little.. $10 bucks!!! BUT, the deals on fresh meats were so good.. that I grabbed a couple of extra things…
Overall I saved about 65% with a $2.50 CAT OYNO. And a coupon for the cat food that I use. So I was pretty please. Retail $ 115.42 OOP $ 40.30 65% saved. Which is pretty good at Lowe’s food’s for me.
