Spent $3.95 and Saved $48.48

Yesterday I had another record day at Harris Teeter I did 2 transactions and both transaction together I only spent $3.95 and saved $48.48. The only thing I paid for was a pack of pampers I got on evic for $2.99 after my $1.50 coupon doubled. The rest was tax.

I got:

5 hormel compleats
1 box of krusteaz cake mix
4 jars of welch's grape jelly
2 colgate toothpaste
2 pouches of cat treats
1 single roll 7th generation papertowels
3 boxes of green giant frozen veggies

I got all the stuff listed above for free!

I went back today and did a much smaller transaction and got 3 zone perfect bars, 2 pouches of cat treats, and another box of cake mix and got it all for .67. I got the cat treats and cake mix free and paid very little for the zone bars.

Spent $3.44 Saved $54 At Harris Teeter Super Doubles

My Harris Teeter trip today was much more positive than yesterday's trip. Yesterday they decided they were going to analyze my coupons to make sure I got the exact thing that was listed on the coupon. Not to mention the same cashier took the same coupons the day before for the same items without a problem. Oh well, on to today's successful trip.

Today I bought:

3 Activia yogurt on sale $2 each

used 3 $1/1 coupons doubled= free

2 bags purina cat food

used 2 $1/1 coupons
these were on sale Buy 1 get 1 free, I bought these in 2 separate transactions so they would each ring up half price, then my $1 coupons doubled making them .72 each!

5 pouches of purina cat treats

used 5 $1/1 coupons doubled= free

5 edward's singles 2 pack pies sale $2 each

used 5 $1/1 coupons doubled= free

6 tony's pizza's used 3 1off 2 coupon doubled= $1 for 6

I did not get all this in one transaction. Since you can only use 3 like coupons per order I went through the checkout twice.

I spent only $3.44 on all this and saved $54!!

How Does Super Double Coupons Work?

I thought I would go ahead and answer this question prompt since Harris Teeter is starting super double coupons Wed.

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.

It's Giveway Time!!!!

If you haven't already you should go read the previous post about a Fresh Start. We're going to be making a fresh start here at JJ Frugal Friends and going to get serious about blogging as well as sharing other tips and ideas besides what all you can get free with coupons. We really want to see our followers grow and return on a daily basis.

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.

A Fresh Start

After a while we all get tired of the same thing, whether it's the same clothes, same food, same clutter. We just want to throw out and bring in the new. Well, that's about how I'm feeling about the blog. I love the blog and the concept of the blog but I've been slack. I think you guys want more from this than to just only hear about all the free stuff I get. I want to give you more than that too. I want this blog to keep you coming back daily for more and to invite your friends to come join. I hope to bring more frugal living post to the blog and other fun post not totally related to coupon deals.

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?

Spent $1.83 and Saved $29.84

I'm loving this beautiful weather outside today. Spent half the afternoon outside in my glider with a good book.

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.

Free Femine Products!!

This week I was loving the BOGO deal at Rite Aid with the Stayfree pads paired with the BOGO free coupons that came out a few weeks ago. For those of you who may not know you can use a buy 1 get 1 free coupon with a buy 1 get 1 free sale and get 2 for free! You can't beat that! I got 12 packs for free this week and only had two pay $2.32 for tax. I went back later in the week and got an additional 2 packs the were the 40ct. I only paid .99 plus .54 tax which = $1.53 for these large packs.
