I just got back from the commissary and they had Quaker instant oatmeal(boxes) for $1.79(which is already cheap compared to Food Lion and Harris Teeter). I used the $1.00/1 from the paper a few Sunday’s ago and got the box for $.79!! Actually I bought 21 boxes since I had 21 coupons! ๐Ÿ˜€

I finally got a chance to take advantage of the double coupons promotion that Harris Teeter is doing right now(check out my post here). I was a little disappointed because they were out of a few things I wanted, but I still got some great deals! Here is what I got:

2 – 8 count Brawny paper towels

4 – Ken’s marinade

1 – Organic Valley milk

9 – Dole Pineapple

2 – Wholly Guacamole

1 – Star Kist tuna pouch

2 – 3 pack Orbit gum

1 – 8 pack Lance crackers

Here is what I spent and saved:

I walked out paying $21.14 and I SAVED $48.14!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

I’m not sure if you’ve figured this out yet, but I just LOVE LOVE LOVE a good deal! It’s my goal in life to find the best deals and make my husband’s money stretch as far as possible! Well, tonight we went to The Children’s Place because all 3 kiddos needed some more clothes. They are all growing like weeds and a friend of mine said that The Children’s Place was having a killer sale. Boy, she wasn’t kidding! They were taking an additional 50% off the already reduced prices AND I had another 15% off coupon! We got lots of stuff for each child. If we bought all of the clothes at regular price, it would have cost $433. We only paid $120!!!! That’s a total savings of $313 or 73%! I’m just amazed! And everytime my kids wear something that we bought tonight, I’ll feel all warm and fuzzy inside. ๐Ÿ˜€

Look at me go! Three posts in one day!ย  But this post is far too exciting to not share. One of the local grocery stores(Harris Teeter) is running a special. They are doubling coupons up to $1.98. Well, I took advantage of this situation and got some KILLER steals! This is all the stuff I got:

2 – 1/2 gallons of organic milk

original price – $3.99 each

2 – boxes of Weight Watchers snack cakes

original price – $1.99

2 – boxes(6 count) of Slim Fast chocolate bars

original price – $3.99

2 – boxes of quiche

original price – $2.69

1 – Coffee Mate french vanilla creamer

original price – $2.00

Before coupons and giving them my store card, the total was $33.25. I walked out of the store only paying…..are you ready?? $6.28!!!!!! How awesome is that? Oh I love it! It gives me the warm fuzzies inside when I save money like that. Everything but the milk and Slim Fast bars ended up being free!! ๐Ÿ™‚
