Here's a glimpse at what I scooped up at Harris Teeter this morning during the first day of Triple Coupons.
I purchased $55.89 worth of groceries and paid $1.32. Thirty-six cents of that was tax.
That figures out to be a 98 percent savings.
Even though I've been couponing for decades, I'm always amazed at how much those little slips of paper can save a family.
I used 20 coupons: four printables, one that came to me by mail with a free sample and the rest from the Sunday News & Observer inserts. All of them tripled without a beep.
I'll go back later in the week to do a full shop for my week's worth of groceries but knew if I didn't get my freebies and cheapies on the first day they might be gone.
I'm hoping to get a couple more packages of turkey hot dogs for summer grilling and a couple jugs of Xtra laundry detergent for my younger son who is setting up housekeeping in Winston Salem in the fall.
Also on my list: Earthbound Farm organic salad with the printable coupons I posted about HERE and Pampers wipes for my grandson, also using printable coupons available on coupons.com.
I've got my fingers crossed that Harris Teeter will keep the shelves stocked.
