Food Lion deal

FOOD LION (yesterday)

I bought a lot but the best deals I got are as follows
Wheat Thins Artisan Flavors on sale for 2/$4
I used my B1G1 Free coupon and it came up as -$3.59, the orig price.  

I paid 41 cents for 2 boxes of Wheat Thins.  

There was a $1 off coupon next to the Special K, which was on sale for $2.50, 
Final price $1.50.


I read on a blog that they were tripling coupons, however, not all coupons will fully triple in value.  You have to be careful and watch the cashiers when they scan your coupons.  

Our bill before coupons was $40 + (I don't recall the exact amount)
We paid $22.03 for everything.  All of the groceries were name brand items for the most part.
Our "extravagant" buy was my boyfriend's three boxes of Kraft Macaroni and CHeese to take back to Spain as presents for his family and friends.  

Some examples of our purchases:
 Newman's Own salsa
Wishbone salad spritzers
Chex honey nut cereal
Kernal popcorn seasoning
Barilla pastas
...and much more!!

They have very good customer service at HT.

CVS trip with a 5/15 coupon!!

I had to go back to CVS because I had a $5/15 coupon that expired on March 28th!! too much pressure.  So I decided to take advantage of the Dove deal to get my 5 ECBs.

Here is what I bought:

1 Bayer Breeze Glucose meter on sale for $14.99 (these usually cost $60!!)
FREE after coupon  -- I am going to donate this to a clinic I volunteer at.

2 cans of Campbell's soup B1G1 Free
1.69 for two
$1 off coupon
35 cents each

1 Dove Cream Oil Lotion $7.99
$1.50 off coupon
1 Dove Cream Oil Bodywash $8.69
$1.50 off coupon

$5/15 purchase
3 ECBs

Total $8.12
PLUS 5 ECBs earned from the Dove offer!

I might donate some of the products. I have too many for myself, I don't want to accumulate unnecessarily (my boyfriend doesn't want me to either!!)

Free Dr. Pepper and other Target bargains

Today we got our free Dr. Pepper at Target.  I also used my 0.75 off coupon on Lipton Cold Brew Iced Tea bags.  The box was $2.54, so after the coupon they cost $1.79.

Also at Target I bought Archer Farms Organic Lactose Free Skim Milk that rang up at $1.17! I would have bought more but only 2 of us are in the house and I am not a huge milk drinker.  

I used the coupon printer at the Gift Registry so I do not have to use my own printer to get them.  
More bargains in the near future...

Sharing the one Walgreens and CVS

I was inspired by the blogs I follow and I have started getting some great deals at CVS and Walgreens so I thought I would share.  I do not have any kids so the deals are just for me, my boyfriend and my Meyers parrot named Pio.

CVS 3/18
I started shopping there a couple of weeks ago, and had to spend a little more to start earning ECBs, however I still used coupons and got great deals.  The people who work at one of the CVS near my house look very carefully at every coupon and match it up with the product, does that happen a lot to anyone else?  


1 Colgate Total Whitening toothpaste 7.6oz on sale for $3.89
used $1.50 coupon

1 Dry Idea on sale for 2.99
the woman could not figure out how to ring it up as such so she just rang it up for 0.99 and I did not use the $2/1 coupon I had printed nor did I "get" the ECBs, I just got the final price.  
total 0.99

total $1.25
