Day of Fantastic Deals!

I learned earlier this week that a grocery store in my area, Harris Teeter was having a triple coupon (any coupon $0.99 and under) sale. You could only use 20 coupons at a time and it started Thursday at 7:00 AM. I was so excited. I waited all week. Last night, I went to a friend's house and we went through all our coupons and sorted them and got everything ready. I could hardly sleep last night, I was like a kid waiting for Christmas, it is kind of sad how much a good deal could excite me! This morning at 6:30 Abe and I left. We went to 2 Harris Teeter stores and used 20 coupons each time. We also went to 2 Food Lion stores to sweeten the deal. Here is what we came up with! Under each picture is posted a price range that those items cost. FREE! Yep, everything in the above picture cost me NOTHING!
This is the largest group of items, (picture above) they all cost under $0.50!
These items all cost somewhere between $0.50 - $1.00.


These were all my items that were one dollar or more. My most expensive item was $1.74.





I got all this cereal from a great deal Food Lion was running. It cost me $20.58 out of pocket, but I have a $10.00 Food Lion Gift Certificate to go along with all of it! Amazing right? I'll save you from counting, it is 35 boxes.








So, all said and done I got $250.74 worth of groceries for $44.89 with a $10.00 Food Lion card to add on. If you divide what I paid by the number of items I brought home, it averages to $0.36 an item! Not too shabby!!!

I did the whole coupon thing a few years ago and then I gave it up and now you are making me want to get back in again. Good work.

That is truely amazing, I told Bryan that he would have to pick up the pace with his deals or you would pass him up as the family deal master (then I remembered that I have kind of enjoyed him slowing down a bit on the deal side of things!)

Way to go on your deals! There is nothing better than getting stuff (especially groceries) for good deals! I love coupons!! Too bad those stores aren't out here or I would be there in a flash!!

So, what exactly did the "triple coupon day" mean? Do you get most of your coupons online? I've always wanted to be good at the coupon thing, but haven't really gotten the hang of it!

Holy Cow Qwerty!! That is really amazing and I really liked the bit at the end where you did the fancy price/item calculations. That was really nice.
