Super Double Coupons Trip #1- $1.93 plus tax for $82 worth of groceries!


I think today was one of the best trips I have ever had at Harris Teeter Super Doubles! In the end I paid $1.93 plus tax. before coupons or sales, the total was $82.47. Another thing that made this trip nice was that I got a wide variety of items, from ground pork, to rope sausage, to lotion, to cat food, to household cleaners. Couponing is definitely not just for junk foods!
See all the ZVR coupons? Those stand for "Zaver" and mean the Harris Teeter EVIC coupons that you upload to your shopper card. Sign up for EVIC online at www.harristeeter.com and they will send you an e-mail where you can click the EVIC coupons and add to your card.

Since I can only double 20 coupons per day, I will go back tomorrow for more items. My first trip is always just a fun trip where I see how much I can get for how little. The rest of the week is more serious, where I will actually try to stock up on some items that my family uses. Even though they may not be freebies, I still expect to save 50%-75% during the rest of the week. I saw lots of deals today on coffee, cat and dog food, vitamins, paper products and baby items.

I even made money on a couple of items! 
(Dawn Dish Detergent- on sale for $.99. Use a $.50 paper coupon from 10/28 P&G and a $.50 ZVR Harris Teeter online coupon- it all comes off and you end up $.51 in the positive!)

Being organized is half the battle. I had planned out my trip last night and organized the coupons that I planned to use and placed them in the "To Redeem at Checkout" section of my binder. I am also glad that I had organized my binder this past weekend because there are always sales that I was not anticipating and I was able to easily find coupons to match those sales.
I try to have my trip planned before I go, having pulled the coupons that I think are good deals. Visit www.southernsavers.com and click "Harris Teeter" to see lists of deals.

But it still pays to have your coupons organized in the proper section in your binder for those surprise sales that you come across in the store. That way, you can easily find the coupon when you need it and match it to the sale!

Normally I suggest leaving your children at home if you can because it's easier to concentrate when you are alone. However, I did bring along my five week old daughter and she was my little shopping buddy today. She slept the whole time!
My shopping buddy was a good girl today!

See the details of everything I got today below and be sure to share your deals on the Delly's Deals Facebook page this week!

I apologize that I can't list the sources for all my coupons. Some were already cut and in my binder so I can't list the exact newspaper that they came from. However, you can use my coupon database above if you want to find any coupons. Just type the product name and all the different sources for a coupon matching that product will appear.

Super Double Coupons Week Starts Tomorrow!

Get organized for Super Double coupons week- shop with a binder! It will help you save hundreds, if not THOUSANDS of dollars. Click here for details.


Starting tomorrow, Wed. Oct. 31st, Harris Teeter and Lowes Foods will be running Super Doubles for a week. With tomorrow being Halloween, it's going to be one busy Wednesday for me!


I will probably go 3-4 times this week, for a total of around 80 coupons.

Remember, the rules of Super Double coupon week are that you can double up to twenty coupons per day, including coupons that are up to $2.00 in face value on the coupon. This means that $1.00 will double to $2.00, $1.50 will double to $3.00 and $2.00 will double to $3.50 off
. Match the coupons to the SALES for maximum savings.

Read my post, "How I Get Prepare for Triple Coupons Week" to get specific details on exactly what I do to prepare. Although I was preparing for Triple coupon week when I did that post, the steps that I follow are the same for this week's Super Double Coupon week.




Other tips to remember-



A. Try to get the items you want the most (particularly the free ones) first. Sometimes popular items sell out. Although the grocery store will restock, it's hard to know exactly when and how many of an item they will get in.



B. Order any coupons for items your family goes through quite a bit, but only if it will be a good deal. You can order from EBAY to get item-specific coupons.



C. Pull any $1.00, $1.50, and $1.75 off coupons out of your binder and place in an envelope marked specifically for Super Double coupons. That way, you can easily price check in store to see if it will be a good deal. Also, organize the coupons by aisle in the grocery store for maximum efficiency, although this is not required.



D. Don't forget to upload your digital coupons! Go to your Harris Teeter weekly emails, click "EVIC coupons" and load as many as you like onto your shopper card. I noticed lots of P&G coupons that have digital matchups, so this means you will double your paper coupon AND get the digital coupons off, too! I have also been getting overage on my digital coupons, so that's a nice bonus!


E. Visit the deal lists on Southern Savers to see previews of the deals that are available. These will give you an idea of some of the great deals but remember, no website can ever find all the deals! You have to look around the store yourself and see what coupons you have to match the products that are on sale.


I love to hear about all your great deals! Post here or on the Delly's Deals Facebook Page and share your deals with us all week!

Chick Fil A Free Food Calendars Back!

You know the year is coming to an end when Chick Fil A premiers their annual Cow Calendar. They are now available and if you like Chick Fil A, I highly recommend you get one soon. Last year they sold out. I tried to get one on EBAY and people were selling them for three times as much as they normally cost.

Why all the fuss? The calendars only cost $6 + tax but are loaded with one free item of food for each month of the year. They are fairly generous. Here is the list of free items for 2013:


JanuaryFree Chick-fil-A® Chicken Sandwich01/01/13 - 01/31/13
FebruaryFree Large Coca-Cola®02/01/13 - 02/28/13

NovemberFree Large Coca-Cola Zero11/01/13 - 11/30/13
DecemberFree Chick-n-Strips (3-count)12/02/13 - 12/31/13
In previous years, each month had a redeemable coupon that you had to tear off to use. Now, the calendars come with a card that you can keep in your wallet to redeem your free item each month. When you activate your card, you can even receive reminders to redeem your free food item before the deadline.

These calendars make great gifts for kids, family members, teachers, yourself and really just about anyone who has easy access to Chick Fil A and is likely to redeem the items.

Calendars are available at Chick Fil A locations or online here. Last year they sold out, so get yours soon!

Make Money on Razors at Target!




I love it when I get great deals on fancy razors for my husband!

Right now the Gillette Fusion ProGlide razors are $9.89 at Target. If you buy two, you get a $5 Target gift card.

There are both manufacturer's coupons and Target coupons available for you to use on the razors to do this deal.

Buy: 2 Gillette Fusion ProGlide razors for $9.89 each (19.78)

Use: 2 Target coupons for $5 off Gillette Fusion ProGlide Styler Razor from 10/28 Smart Source) -$10.00

Use: 2 Manufacturer's coupons for $4 off from 10/7 Red Plum (-$8.00)

You Pay: $1.78 plus tax

You Get Back: $5 Target gift card

If you count the gift card, you made $3.22!

What an awesome deal on awesome razors (my husband loves these).

I called my local Target (Wilmington, NC) and they said they had plenty in stock as of this morning.

Thank you to Tennisey A. from the Delly's Deals Facebook page for sharing this awesome deal!

CVS Awesome Pampers Deal- Saved 73%!

Organize yourself! Check out our couponing binders 
with strap here!
 
I'm so pumped about paying $3.24 per pack for diapers that would normally run me $11.99 per pack! I saved 73% off the regular price. Here's how I did it at CVS:

I bought: 4 packs of Pampers Diapers (on sale for $8.99)

I used: 4 manufacturer's coupons for $2.00 off (found in the today's October 28th Proctor and Gamble insert)

I also used: 1 CVS coupon for $5.00 off any baby purchase (came from the CVS card scanner machine. You may not get this same coupon but instead you could use any 25% or 20% off coupon from CVS that you get or any Extrabucks that you earned previously). 

4 Diapers: $35.96
4 Pampers Coupons: -$8.00 (brings total to $27.96)
1 CVS Coupon: -$5.00 (brings total to $22.96)

That makes each pack only $5.74, which is already awesome. Makes them about 14 cents each.

BUT.....it gets better! After paying, I got back $10 in Extrabucks from the buy $30 worth P&G and get $10 back promo that CVS is running. So if you count the Extrabucks that I earned, I paid $3.24 per pack or 8 cents per diaper! Compare that to Sam's Club's Price of 19 cents per diaper!

Just another reason why I LOVE CVS! This sale runs through Thank you to Jennifer from Spend Less Shop More for tipping me off to the deal.

All participants leave with FREE coupons!

Star News vs. News and Observer

Upcoming Workshop in Wilmington, NC- Sat. Nov. 10th. 

Good morning! Today there were three inserts in each newspaper- a Red Plum, a Smart Source and a Proctor and Gamble. You definitely want to get the Proctor and Gamble insert since it normally only comes out once a month.

Each Sunday I compare both the Raleigh and Wilmington newspapers to see which had better and more coupons. This week, Raleigh did have more coupons (all black and blue text). The Red and Blue text represents which coupons were in the Wilmington paper. See how many more are in the Raleigh paper?

Delly's Deals of the Week- Saved Over $94!

Before coupons and sales the total was $149.58. 
After coupons and sales, I paid $55.43!


Another great week of sales are going on at Harris Teeter. I was able to get so many great items and saved almost $100 by using their sales and my coupons! Believe me, I can find something else to do with $100, lol......

While I only got five freebies this week, I still saved around 60% which is good because I shoot for at least 50% every week. I had to buy some meat, fruit and bread, which I did buy on sale. I looked for the things that were on sale and applied my coupons to them. 

I must add that I also used a $10 Recyclebank coupon for Harris Teeter. It was given to me (thank you to Carrie) but you can earn these $10 off coupons yourself by doing easy quizzes on the Recyclebank website. I really enjoyed using that coupon so I think I will be taking Recyclebank a lot more seriously and trying to earn myself $10 off coupons!

I am not listing the entire trip but please see some of my favorite deals that I got below and maybe you can grab some, too!

3 Maruchan Yakisoba Noodles- (FREE after $.50 coupon from newspaper)
El Monterrey Burritos, FREE (used free coupon from newspaper)

Easy Chili Recipe plus Coupon for Canned Tomatoes

To make chili you need tomatoes. Print a free coupon from my website (see coupon center on left and click "see all coupons") that makes DelMonte canned tomatoes only $.50 per can at Harris Teeter through Tuesday night! You can print the coupon twice, too.

This cool weather is making me really crave chili!

I love chili for so many reasons. Not only is it good but it's easy to make and relatively healthy. It is also VERY economical- a few inexpensive ingredients go a long way and can feed a lot of people. Perfect for my family of SIX!

One key ingredient is tomatoes. I prefer name brand and right now there is a coupon for DelMonte canned tomatoes on my website AND they are on sale at Harris Teeter for $1. Buy two cans, use the coupon and they become $.50 a can. You can't even get store brand for that price!

Delicious and Easy Crockpot Chili

You need:

Crock Pot

3 Cans of Kidney Beans (sometimes I do 2 cans of Kidney and 1 can of Black Beans) I rinse the beans to get rid of some of the sodium.

McCormick Chili Seasoning Packet

Cooked, Drained Ground Beef (1/2-1 pound, depending on how meaty you want it)

2-3 cans of diced tomatoes (depending on how tomatoey you like it) I use the basil, garlic and oregano seasoned ones

Mix all the ingredients together in a crock pot and let cook on low for 4-6 hours or high for 2-4 hours. Stir occasionally. If it seems too thick, you can add a little water to taste but know that it will get more watery as it cooks anyway. 

Optional toppings: Shredded Cheese, sour cream, chives, onions, crushed tortilla chips, hot sauce or anything else you like!

I also like to make a pan of cornbread with it. So filling!

To me, it tastes even better the next day, so you can prepare it, refrigerate it and eat it the next day if you think ahead. Or......put it on in the morning and let it cook all day on low and it will be ready for dinner!

I can make an entire crock pot of this using all the above ingredients and the cornbread for less than $10, and it provides a meal and plenty of leftovers for another meal or two.

How do you like to make and eat your chili? Print your coupon for DelMonte tomatoes from my coupon center on the left!

CVS Freebies this Week!




I noticed several easy freebies that you can get at CVS this week. 

If you are not familiar with CVS shopping, remember that their Extrabucks rewards are like CVS money that can be spent on anything inside of CVS (except lotto, tobacco, prescriptions, postage stamps).


St. Joseph's Asprin
Buy 120 ct or HBP 24 ct for $5
Use: $2 coupon from 10/21 Smart Source
Pay: $3 and get back $3 in Extrabucks

American Greetings Cards 
Buy 3 (find ones that are $1) and get $3 back in Extrabucks

Di Gel Liquid 12 oz for $5
Use: $2 coupon from 10/21 Smart Source
Pay: $3 and get back $3 in Extrabucks


Pumpkin Masters Carving Tool
Pay $2.49 and get $2.49 in Extrabucks Rewards back 


One tip is to do each transaction separately in the order that I listed them above. Then, use the Extrabucks that you earn to pay for each subsequent transaction. This way, you don't have to pay much out of pocket for all the rest of the items.

Or.......you could buy everything above in one transaction and earn a total of $11.49 in Extrabucks. Then use those to buy yourself something else at CVS (maybe even something that will earn you more Extrabucks)!

One final deal that I like at CVS this week are Clorox Wipes 35 ct. or Clorox Clean-up Spray. Buy 6 for $15 and get $5 back in Extrabucks. If you bought all of the above items, you could use the $11.49 Extrabucks that you earn to go towards the Clorox Wipes. You'd get 6 canisters for $3.51 and still get back $5 in Extrabucks to use on your next trip!

What CVS deals do you see this week?




Star News vs. News and Observer Plus Video!


Good morning! My baby girl turned four weeks yesterday and she is already sleeping through the night! Last night was the first full Saturday night of sleep that I have gotten in months :) so I was actually able to get up and get the newspapers early today.


My daughter holding her little sister.

This morning I found one Red Plum and one Smart Source coupon booklet in both the Wilmington Star News and the Raleigh News and Observer. Since Raleigh is a bigger city, I expect the coupons in it to be more plentiful. Let's take a look and see if that is the case!


Need to organize all those coupons? 
Check out our binders here! They are the BEST 
organizational system around for couponing!

Overall, Raleigh did have more coupons BUT there were two coupons for freebies in the Wilmington paper that I didn't see in the Raleigh paper- the free El Monterrey Supreme Burrito and the FREE Pedigree Dog Tray. Keep in mind that most stores don't take free coupons that you print from the internet but you shouldn't have any problems with free coupons from the newspaper.

There were also several coupons (see the red print) that were only found in the Wilmington paper this week, so if you want the Schick Products, Pam, Post Cereals and the freebie coupons you will need to get the Wilmington newspaper.

Click here to see my weekly couponing video. This week I shared deals that you still have 3 days (through Tuesday night) to get!

I am so impressed with Harris Teeter's ads and sales lately. Yesterday I had a really nice trip and paid only $8.16 plus tax for $46.40 worth of groceries. I also got several freebies. 

Please note that my weekly grocery budget for my family of 6 is $100 per week. So, I still have $90+ left this week to spend on meats and produce and any other incidentals.

Freebies:

Colgate Cavity Protection Toothpaste (used $.75/1 coupon from Sunday Paper)

Yoplait Simplait Yogurt Cups (used $.30/1 coupon from Sunday Paper)

Gwaltney Meat Hotdogs (used $.45/1 coupon from Sunday Paper)

*Note- the Colgate coupon expires on Sat. Oct. 20th, so use it today or tomorrow.

*Note- some of the Yoplait Simplait coupons Sat. Oct. 20th, so use them soon, too.

Cheapies:

Paid $.10 for Gwaltney Chicken Hotdogs (used $.45/1 coupon from Sunday Paper)

Paid: $.25 each for 2 Yoplait 100 Calorie Greek Yogurt cups (used $.50/2 coupon from my website plus $.50/2 Harris Teeter EVIC coupon)

Paid: $.50 for 2 Yoplait 100 Calorie Greek Yogurt cups (used $.50/2 coupons from Sunday paper)

Paid: $1.25 each for Yoplait Kids Simply Gogurt Boxes (8 ct each) (used $.75/2 coupons from Sunday paper)

Paid: $1.00 for a dozen eggs (a good price, although I've gotten eggs for as little as a quarter a dozen, but we were almost out so I went ahead and paid $1)

I also did the General Mills Promo and got an additional $5 off my bill for buying 15 items from the list. I bought:

6 Yoplait Greek 100 Calorie Cups
3 Yoplait Simplait Yogurt Cups
6 Boxes of Yoplait Kids Simply Gogurt

I used coupons AND got the $5 off, so I paid only $5.84 for all of that yogurt! Regular price would have been $21.90.

Harris Teeter General Mills Promo- Yoplait Cups less than at Sam's Club!

General Mills Promo this Week at Harris Teeter. Buy 15 of any of the above items (click flyer) and get $5 off automatically at the register! Don't forget to use your coupons, too to save even more!


Once again Harris Teeter has provided me with another easy example of why I rarely shop at Warehouse Clubs anymore. Most of the time when I use sale prices plus a coupon the price is way lower at the grocery store. Sometimes, just the sale alone makes the item cheaper but adding the coupon makes it ridiculously low!

I've done these examples with laundry detergent, diapers, chips and probably several other items that I can't recall. This week I'm doing it with Yoplait yogurt.

Yoplait 100 Calorie Greek Yogurt is $.98 each at Sams Club. Their website states that you can buy a 12 count pack for $10.38, making each cup $.86.

At Harris Teeter, the same yogurt is on sale for $1.00 each (only 2 cents more than Sam's Club). 

Even better news is that I've seen coupons for this yogurt. You can print some here free on my website for $.50 off 2 (see coupon center on left and click "See all coupons") or if you've been collecting your coupons, there was a $.50 off 2 coupon in the paper in Smart Source on Sept. 9th. Buy 2 cups of yogurt and use the coupon and you pay only $.50 each. That's far better than Sam's Club price of $.86 each.

Even better, there is also a Harris Teeter EVIC coupon for $.50 off 2 cups. If you use that along with the paper coupon it will save you an additional $.50 (EVIC coupons do not double). So, if you bought 2 yogurts, used a $.50 off 2 paper coupon and the $.50 off 2 EVIC coupon, your total for two would be $.50. In other words, they'd be $.25 each, compared to Sam's Club's price of $.86 each!

Yoplait 100 Calorie Greek Yogurt
Harris Teeter: $1.00 each
Use: $.50 off 2 coupon from Sunday paper (Smart Source 9/9)
Use: $.50 off 2 coupon from HT EVIC email
Total: $.50 for 2 ($.25 each)!

What if you really want to stock up on Greek yogurt this week and buy a lot like you would at Sam's Club? This week at Harris Teeter, there is another General Mills Promo (click flyer below to see all the details). 

It's super easy- buy any combo of 15 items from the flyer and $5 will be automatically deducted from your bill. One of the choices is the Greek Yogurt. If you go ahead and buy 15, you would get $5 off, making the cost $10 for 15, or $.50 each. Compare that to Sam's Club's price of $.86 each.
General Mills Promo at Harris Teeter- 
Buy 15 items and get $5 off your bill!

Best case scenario- you're able to get your hands on 3 coupons for $.50 off 2. That would save you an additional $3 off plus you could use the EVIC coupon for $.50 off 2, making your total for 15 yogurts only $6.50 or $.43 each, compared to Sam's Club's $.86 each. In other words, at Harris Teeter you would get 15 cups for $6.50 while at Sam's Club you would get 12 cups for $10.38. Big difference, huh?

I hope this example has shown you once again why it pays to shop sales at a grocery store AND how it really pays to use coupons!

Star News vs. News and Observer


Good morning!

This week I found 3 inserts in the Raleigh News and Observer paper- a Smart Source, Proctor and Gamble and a Red Plum. I found only 2 inserts in the Wilmington Star News- a Red Plum and a Proctor and Gamble. Normally, Proctor and Gamble only comes out first of the month but this is a special, mid-month edition.


Let's check out the differences in the two newspapers and see which had the most coupons!

How I Saved 80% at Harris Teeter plus General Mills promo

 I paid $9.26 for $48.11 worth of groceries! Saved over 80%!
Organize yourself- check out our sale on binders plus free shipping at www.couponingbinders.com!

On Wednesday evening I went to Harris Teeter and got some great deals. I ended up saving 80% which I thought was spectacular, especially for a regular grocery week. It isn't Super Doubles or anything. Before coupons the total was $48.11 and after coupons and store discounts I paid only $9.26!

Part of the reason I saved so much was the General Mills/Betty Crocker Promo going on this week at Harris Teeter. Buy certain items and get money off automatically at the register. Click below to see the flyer. Even better is the fact that most of these items have matching coupons from the recent Sunday newspapers (Smart Source insert October 7th). I even found a few others randomly in my binder from previous months when I printed coupons.

Deal Alert! General Mills Cereals for $.50 at Harris Teeter!

General Mills Promo at Harris Teeter this week. Buy any four General Mills Cereals (not just the ones pictured above) and get $6 off automatically at the register! Don't forget to use any coupons that you have, too!

Organize yourself and make finding coupons even easier! Check out our new binder site, www.couponingbinders.com. FREE Shipping on all binders and binder sets!

One of my favorite things about Halloween is when General Mills releases the Count Chocula, Boo Berry and Frankenberry Cereals. They are limited editions and tend to sell out quickly but I try to get some because I do love the Count Chocula so much!

They are currently on sale at Harris Teeter for $2.50 per box. If you buy four boxes of General Mills cereals, you get $6 off automatically at the register. So, this is what I plan to do:

4 Boxes of Count Chocula for $10
$6 taken off automatically at register=
$4 for four boxes ($1 each)
I also have coupons for $1.00 off 2 General Mills Cereals, so if I use two of those, I get $2 extra off
Total: $2 for 4 boxes!
$.50 each!

There are SO many General Mills coupons floating around out there; I couldn't list them all. Check your binder and also be sure to click any digital EVIC/ZVR coupons because you may be able to save even more. I know for example, that I had Honey Nut Cheerios coupons as one of my EVIC coupons.

Also, look to the left here on my website and print any General Mills coupons that you see at the coupon center. Click "See all coupons" to see all the awesome coupons that are available for you to print for FREE!

Staples FREE Batteries Deal is Back Again!


Win a $50 grocery or drug store gift card of your choice, just in time for Thanksgiving! Visit our new binder website, www.couponingbinders.com and enter your e-mail to be entered in the Nov. 15th drawing!

The Staples battery deal has come around once again and I love it! This is a great time to stock up for Christmas toy batteries!

Several times a year Staples gives 100% back in rewards when you buy 16 packs of Duracell AA and AAA batteries, limit 2 per customer. You can then take those Staples rewards and buy anything else in the store that you need- copies, office supplies, ink, etc. (I tend to use mine to get free or discounted HP printer ink).


Here's how it works: You must first have a Staples rewards card. If you do not currently have one, just ask at the front counter and they'll be glad to help you sign up immediately.


Then, you must buy the 16 pack AA or AAA batteries. I believe they are $10.99. You will pay for them at the counter, regular price, but then several weeks later in your e-mail or postal mail if you prefer, you will receive a full rebate for them in the form of a Staples reward certificate. This would amount to 21.98 if you had bought 2 packs. You can then print out your reward and bring it into Staples to buy anything else in the store with it! I tend to buy printer ink with mine. 

Here's an example: right now Staples is running a special on printer ink where you get $6 back per cartridge if you buy $50 worth of ink. I've done that before- bought $50 worth of HP ink, then used previously earned battery rewards to help pay for it. So I might get $50 worth of ink for $28.02 and then turn in 5 cartridges to earn $30 back on the ink. If you count the cartridge money that I get back, it's almost like the ink was free. 

For those in Wilmington, there are now two Staples stores. One is near Sam's Club on N. College Rd. and the other is in Monkey Junction.

Wilmington's Red Plum insert today was awful! I could count the number of coupons on one hand. Raleigh Red Plum was very nice.


On the other hand, Wilmington's Smart Source, although still thinner than the Raleigh Smart Source, did have a couple of coupons that were not in Raleigh at all- Celestial Seasonings Tea, Wondermop, Pledge, Tylenol Cold and Sinus Products and the Schick Disposable Razor Coupons.


Until next week......
