Crazy Coupon Capers

My shopping day was unexpectedly long this week. The last thing I wanted to do when I got home was take pictures of everything. I wanted everything put away and out of my sight! I love having pictures to show you, though, and since it wasn't exactly practical for me to get everything back out, I thought I'd show you just the things I got for free with my coupons this week.

Walmart: 6 boxes of Life cereal. Thanks goes to Jenny who gave me the heads up that Wal-Mart has these on sale for $1.00 right now. I had a whole bunch of $1.00 coupons that I had printed off a long time ago, making all six boxes free.

Food Lion: Gerber Graduates baby food. These were on sale for $1.00 each, and there is a $1.00 Food Lion printable here. (You can only print once per computer, but we have 2 computers, so I used two. You have two buy them in separate transactions, though, or the coupon won't go through.)

Harris Teeter: 2 Dole Fruit Naturals, 1 6-pack of Yoplait kids yogurt, 1 pack of Trident gum, and 2 trial size bottles of Clean and Clear. I should have gotten $1 overage on each bottle of Clean and Clear, but the manager wouldn't let me; she adjusted the coupons down. I have heard rumors that Harris Teeter is no longer going to be giving overage anymore, so I checked my receipt to see if the coupons that had doubled gave me overage or if they only doubled up to the regular price. I am thoroughly confused now, because some items gave overage and some didn't. (Regular priced items never give overage, but even some sale items didn't give overage.) I would love to clear up this mystery, so if anyone has anymore input to add, please leave a comment.

For any of you non-couponers, this was a pretty typical week for me as far as the amount of things I get free with coupons. That doesn't count the other items that I paid just a few cents for. Hopefully this will be enough encouragement for you to start using those coupons! And for the benefit of those of you just getting started, don't be discouraged if you're not getting this much stuff free every week. As your coupon stash grows, so will the amount of great deals you can get!

What's your story? Did you get any great deals with your coupons this week? Link up or leave a comment sharing how you did! If you link up, it would be lovely if you could link back to this post as well.

  1. Wow! And I thought I did well today! I bought a couple boxes of Muslix cereal for $1.44 each with a coupon and got a free Campbells soup bowl... but 6 boxes of cereal for free!? Amazing! I wish our stores here had deals like that.
