1 $4 off any diapers AND wipes.
After all the coupons were applied I only paid $2 plus tax for everything. Actually it was a little under $2 before tax. I did have overage from the theraflu that was applied to the rest of my order. I love the fact that my CVS gives overage!!

Yesterday I went to Harris Teeter and Walgreens. Normally I don't shop alot at Walgreens. I hate their coupon policy as far as you have to have the same amount of coupons as you do items. Well this week it was worth my time.
1 bag of huggies wipes 216 ct.
1 covergirl eye shadow
1 covergirl blush
The wipes were on sale for $4.99. I had a $2 store coupon from the Infant Care Book plus a .50 coupon from 10/23 ss. So I only ended up paying less that $2.49 for them.
The covergirl was buy 1 get 1 50% off. They were reg. $4.79 and $5.49 the 50% off took off $2.40 and then I had the $8/2 covergirl insert coupon. The overage from this coupon went on my wipes. My whole out of pocket cost at walgreens was $3.24. I saved $15.40.
Harris Teeter Trip:
3 Jolly Time Popcorn 3ct. box paid .48 for 3 boxes after using and doubling 3 .50/1 coupons. I also got 2 Ristorante Pizzas that were on sale buy 1 get 1 free at $4.99. There were $2 coupons in the 10/23 SS so I used 2 coupons and got 2 for .99. They were out of most of the kinds so I got a raincheck for the other kinds they were out of. At Harris Teeter I paid $1.61 and saved $17.18
So both trips combined I spent $4.85 and saved $32.58.

Harris Teeter has their Xtra laundry detergent on sale buy 1 get 1 free this week. This is the 75 oz size which is 48 loads. I couldn't find my xtra coupons anywhere and it made me so mad thankfully I was able to trade with someone online for some .50 coupons. At Harris Teeter they doubled to $1 off so I only paid .99 for each bottle of xtra. I'm happy I've gotten my year's worth of laundry detergent stocked back up. We never ran out!! I believe that if you can, you should stock up when the price is cheap because if you wait til you run out there won't be a great deal or coupon when you need it. One of the 10 detergents was the Wisk that was on e-vic. With the $2 coupon I got it for $2.50. I got that for someone who only uses wisk.

A baby's hear begins beating just 21 days after conception.
His brain waves can be recorded at just 40 days.
Every organ he will ever have is present and functioning at 8 weeks.
These are amazing stats, and to think that some people would kill this baby and call it "tissue."
A gift of any size, no matter how small can help save a unborn baby's life.
Thanks for your support.

I got 5 boxes of the Splenda Essentials 80ct. box all for free by using the $3 coupon that was in 7/31 insert. They were on sale for $3 this week at Food Lion. I believe the sale is still on and will be for a while so if you didn't get them you still have a chance to grab them. I also had a coupon for a free Herbal Essence Shampoo. I love coupons for free stuff! Especially when it's for the brand I use!!
I got 3 of the Hershey Air Delight bars free at CVS. My store has been out of these for quite a while. I still saved my coupons for the free ones that printed at the coupon printer a month ago. My store said they would honor them when they got them in. I had 2 store coupons for free ones and I also had 1 printable try me free coupon. The first two I bought I even wasn't charged tax for! Go figure! The cashier even couldn't figure out why. Today I got the last one free and was charged .5 tax.
Food Lion has the Marcal single roll paper towels on sale 5/$5 again this week. With the coupon from last sunday I got one roll free. Only paid .7 tax.
Last but not least I went to Harris Teeter and found the Gillette men's body wash was on sale for $2.99. I had the $2 coupon from sunday's P&G and had loaded the $2 e coupon to my card. So I got it for free and only had to pay .20 tax.
So my grand total this week was saved $28.21 and spent .87.

Clean splatters of the mirror (15 seconds) It's easier also to get these splatters off when they happen rathar than waiting til they dry. It's suggested that you can also use the same rag to wipe off the mirror that you use on the sink.
Wipe the toilet seat and rim (15 seconds)
Swoosh the toilet bowl with a brush (15 seconds) If yo see a ring beginning to form inside the toilet give it a quick scrub with the brush.
Wipe down the shower door if you have one (30 seconds) Wipe down glass doors to prevent spotting.
Spray shower and curtain liner with shower mist (15 seconds) This will reduce mildew and soapscum buildup.

-Clear out and wipe down the sink. (5 minutes)
It doesn't take that long to wash a few dishes, if you wash them every day or to pop the dishes in the dishwasher. If you wipe down the sink every time you get food in it or take the dishes out it wouldn't get that dirty.
-Wipe down countertops and stove. (1 minute)
-Wipe problem spots on the floor. (2 minutes)
If you leave the sticky, dirty spots on the floor, they will attract dirt and become more noticeable.
-Fold or hang dishtowels. (30 seconds) Even if they're clean a pile of dishtowels can still look messy.

Create a account. It's not complicated. Scroll through the coupons, click on the square that says "card". This will save them to your card. I think these coupons you load to your card can only be used once. This makes for some sweet deals when you combine these with paper coupons plus a good sale.
Today at CVS some select cardholders got a coupon when they scanned their card at the coupon machine for a .99 12pck of Pepsi or Diet Pepsi. I was skeptical last night when I read about this and even after I got the e-mail from CVS I still wondered. Well I went in today and scanned my card and I got the coupon. So I got a 12 pck of Pepsi for only .99.
I also got some free stuff while I was there. I had a raincheck from when the 3pck. Ivory soap was on sale for .99 I had 2 $1/1 coupons so I got both for free. I also used the $1/1 crystal light coupons that were in the paper this past sun. and got 6 individual packets for free. These are 2/$1 and since the coupon was for $1 one coupon covered 2.
I've got more deals planned for tomorrow so it will be neat to see at the end of the week total how much I've spent and saved.

This post may be random but I'm going to share some couponing tips and websites to find coupons and upcoming sales.
All 3 of the local drugstores in our area have websites where you can go and view the upcoming sales ads. This is a great way to see if the items you're going to be needing are going on sale anytime soon and where the best place to buy them is. Also I enjoy looking at the ads to see what coupons I need to find for the upcoming sales.
Rite Aid: www.iheartriteaid.com
The upcoming ads are listed on the right hand side of the page.
Angie asked the question in the recent Q&A contest, Where do I find high value coupons online. There are many coupon sites online where you can print coupons. The sites I recommend are coupons.com, smartsource.com, and redplum.com Keep in mind the smart source and redplum sites have a lot of the same coupons that are in their inserts in the paper.
Coupons.com resets their coupons every month, some coupons don't last a whole month on there. You can only print most printable coupons twice per computer. I do know that if the same coupon is on the site again the next month you may print it two more times.

How does Super Double coupons work? Which coupons are the best to use?
Harris Teeter will only double 20 coupons per day per household. Only 3 identical coupons can be used in 1 transaction. During the super double events Harris Teeter will double any coupon with $1.98 face value or under. For ex. $1.50 coupon will double to $3. They will double any coupon under $1 every day, so for the super double event you need to focus on the coupons that are $1-$1.50. This can score you tons of free stuff.
The first giveaway you can enter is ask me you Coupon Questions. I've had several people ask about my extreme couponing lately and how I get all that toothpaste or a year's worth of femine products free. There is no dumb question. Leave any question you may have about couponing how to get started, how to find the deals, or anything else.
The 2nd giveaway you can enter by leaving me a comment telling me what you would like to see on the blog. I want to blog what you want to see. I know I did a post about a year ago asking the same thing but I will try to listen this time! lol
The winners will receive great surprises! The drawings for the winners will take place Thurs. morning. If I don't have your contact info please leave your e-mail address in your comment.
Tell all your friends about the giveaways. The more people that enter, the more fun it will be.
I follow several of the bigger coupon/savings sites and I would love to see our blog become 1/2 of what these sites are. I realize I have to do my part on blogging but will you do your part of coming back and giving us feedback and comments to make the blog more exciting?
I had to share my freebies of the day with you. I spent $1.83 ( all but .30 was tax) and saved $29.84! I paid .30 for 2 zone perfect bars and everything else was free. I got 7 tubes of colgate that were on sale at Harris Teeter for $1.09, I had .75 coupons which doubled making them free. I bought 2 chewable 90ct. maalox bottles at Rite Aid on sale for $4.99, I also bought 1 liquid maalox for $4.99 too. I used 3 $5 maalox coupons and got $3 up rewards back. Up rewards are coupons to use off your next order. I went to Food Lion and got a roll of marcal paper towels free with a $1 coupon. The paper towels were regularly $1.19 but were on sale for $1.

Rachel, shares on her blog (www.preemieclothingdrive.com) how the journey isn't easy with your child in the NICU. She was given an annonymous onesie when her daughter was in there, and Rachel was greatly blessed by this act of kindness from a complete stranger.
The delivery date for these items to the NICU is March 9th. We really need to collect these things asap so I can get them to Rachel.
If you would rathar give a monatary gift I would see that it was used to buy onesies etc. for the drive.
I'm excited to see what our small blog can do to bless these tiny babies and their families.
Please leave us a comment in the comment section and let us know if you're willing to help. If we don't have your contact info please leave us your e-mail address.
Thanks so much in advance!

I've been back to Food Lion and bought 2 more of the spaghetti for $1. I found 2 more of the $1 coupons. I also bought 2 more of the Healthy Choice soups, some bananas, and 2 more containers of the bestlife butter spread. I had coupons, of course, for everything except the bananas. Not sure how this happened but I paid only for the bananas. The soups should have cost $1. I only paid $1.30 and the bananas were $1.16 plus .14 tax. I'm not complaining at all!!
I got 2 of the pure protein bars, 1 of the Johnson and Johnson baby bars of soap, and 4 boxes of the fiber one honey clusters cereal. I paid 4.26 for all of this and .26 was tax. The only thing I really paid for was $1 a box for the cereal.
