...And the super double week comes to an end...

So, I had an awesome week!!! My sister and law and I are couponing together, which makes the whole thing a lot more fun. We have been hanging out almost every day to talk coupon, clip, look for deals and share what deals we got that day, Nathan and Mike are also happy, cause they not only have delicious food at all times but they play video games while Suzy and I got ready for the next day trip.

So every month (since I started couponing is as far as I know) Harris Teeter -HT-have Super doubles coupon week or Tripple coupon week, this month was super doubles where they double any coupon that has a face value up to $1.98, its THE week for couponners like myself haha I went to HT everyday this week, cause they have a limit of coupons you can use per day. So here are my total for this week's awesome shopping trips: $477.56 in groceries and I paid $79.87 and that is after vic card savings, I didnt check how much would've been without my card, I should cause that would been even more exciting YAY for savings!!!

I am so excited, even Nathan is super exited he keeps telling people that we have aluminum foil and Ziploc bags for 5 years (I did stock us up on those) haha funny story, when I first started couponing he said: "for every dollar you save, i will give you in cash" so today I told him he owed me almost $400!!! Everybody should do this, it's pretty impressive how much you can save in groceries and even get LOTS of free stuff that would normally be pretty pricey.

Harris Teeter triple coupon

I watched an episode of Extreme Coupon on TLC, and I understand there is no way Those people are saving that much, but I have good friends who save A LOT of $$ by using coupons. So I decided to start couponing. Why? well I am in 5 grocery stores everyday (with my bread man) so I figured I would be dumb if I didnt take advantage of THAT, but of course I will be buying things we normally use and not just junk haha ...I started to look for tutorials on youtube on how to start and I found Jenny's videos from and her method is not so time consuming, so I decded to start as she teaches (but now I cant wait to get a hudge binder hahah) Sooo, I have been collecting coupons for 5 weeks now, and man it's being great!!! Every Monday morning I buy 3-4 news papers before I start working, then I go to to check match up deals, they are not always accurate but I would say 80% is. So this whole week Harris Teeter is having Triple coupon week, which is pretty simple: they triple your coupon's face value up to $.99 but only 20 coupons per I made my list on Tuesday night and first thing on Wednesday there I was, ready for my "hunt" for the freebies and great deals. My first trip (first HT)I got $42 for only $2.60 then I went to another HT and got $53 for $12. Today I got $83 and paid $17 YAY and of course I took pics, cause I am very excited about this its kind of addicting and also this is a blog, and blogs are not blogs without pics so here they are:

Total for the two days of triple coupon $178 paid $32 BIGGGG savings YAY
