Spent .99 saved $24, plus 2 packs FREE cookies

I probably did my best ever at Harris Teeter yesterday. The 10 pack bakery cookies with icing and sprinkles were on e-vic for .99. There was obviously a glitch in the system when I checked out because I got two packs free! They rang up and showed I owed $0.00! Then the cashier rang up the rest of my groceries. My whole order looked like this:

2 packs of bakery cookies
1 box of Ritz cheese crackers
4 vitamin waters
3 pouches of cat treats
1 bag of Halls cough drops

I saved $24.89 and only had to pay .99! .50 was tax and the .49 was on the ritz crackers!

2. Place 4 mini whole wheat pitas on a baking sheet. Top with 2 oz. thinly sliced spinach (2 cups), 1/2 cup sliced roasted red peppers and 2-3oz. shredded cheese (dill flavored havarti is yummy but mozzarella works well too).

Harris Teeter Super Doubles

I went to Harris Teeter Thurs and did really well.

I got a bunch of items free. The items I got free were the 44oz. Classico pasta sauce, 2 large bottles of Pert shampoo (they were signed wrong 2/$5.00 so they honored that price), 3 bags of Prina cat treats, 1 sure deodorant, 1 can of Mccormick cinnamon, and 1 Johnson's baby bar of soap all free! I also bought a pack of Always pads, 1 deli creation lunchable, 1 single california kitchen pizza, and 6 tony's pizzas. I got everything for $4.60! This trip I saved $41.85.

Sorry if this sound choppy! I just woke up and am not awake yet :)

I Was Paid To Shop @ CVS & Food Lion

I did really well this week and was paid to shop at both CVS and Food Lion.

Food Lion has Lunchables on sale for 4/$5.00. I bought 4 and used 4 $1.00 off coupons and paid .25 each for them. The lunchables are also printing out $1.00 off your next shopping order coupons. One prints for each lunchable you buy. So in all I spent $1.12 including tax and got coupons for $4 off my next order!

I have recently started doing the extra care bucks at cvs and am really glad I have. The CVS batteries are on sale Buy 1 Get 1 Free. I got 2 packs of D batteries ($4.29) and 1 was free. I also bought a tube of crest pro health toothpaste. This was on sale for $3.50 plus you got $3.50 in extra care bucks backs (which is like $3.50 off your next order). I had a .75 crest coupon I used and $5 in extra care bucks.

After my coupons and after the extra care bucks I paid with I only had to pay $2.11 out of pocket. Keep in mind I also got the $3.50 extra care bucks to use later. Batteries aren't cheap and I just got 2 packs plus toothpaste!

Ice Packs for Less

With the temperatures climbing already it's time to dust off your coolers and fire up the grill. My mom taught me this trick and it works great. Keep your butter or cool whip containers and fill them with water. Freeze them overnight and you have instant ice packs. It is free plus you have extra water to drink when they melt.

HOT Dr. Pepper Coupon: $0.60 off one 2 Litter Bottle or 12 ct Pack

Here's an awesome deal on 2 liter Dr. Pepper. You can get a coupon for .60 off (1) 2 liter or a 12ct. pack. If you want some free soda the best thing would be is to save it for triples and then you could get a free 2liter! They're regularly $1.79 at Harris Teeter. If you didn't want to save it, it would still be a fairly good deal anyway.

Make your own convenience foods

One of the best ways to quickly lower your grocery bill is to cut out convenience foods. But what about those days when you need quick and easy. Make your own ahead of time for the week or month. Make an extra batch of waffles or muffins and freeze them. Invest in lots of snack and sandwich bags or reusable containers for individual servings of fruits and veggies. Then cut up and divide for that weeks lunches. Cut big blocks of cheese into cubes or make your own trail mix. Don't waste money on individual bags of chips or cookies just divide a big bag into smaller bag servings and store in a large container until needed. Get the whole family involved by forming an assembly-line. Even dinner can be put together like your favorite Stouffer's meal. When needed just heat and eat. Look where convenience is costing you and find a creative way to duplicate it for less.
