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

Oct
31

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!

Super Double Coupons Week Starts Tomorrow!

Oct
30

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!

Oct
30

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:
January Free Chick-fil-A® Chicken Sandwich 01/01/13 – 01/31/13
February Free Large Coca-Cola® 02/01/13 – 02/28/13
March Free Oatmeal or Free Yogurt Parfait 03/01/13 – 03/30/13
April Free Large Sprite® 04/01/13 – 04/30/13
May Free Spicy Chicken Biscuit or Free Large Waffle Potato Fries 05/01/13 – 05/31/13
June Free Small Hand-Spun Milkshake 06/01/13 – 06/29/13
July Free Large Diet Coke® 07/01/13 – 07/31/13
August Free Chicken Salad Sandwich 08/01/13 – 08/31/13
September Free Simply Orange® or Free DASANI® Bottled Water 09/02/13 – 09/30/13
October Free Cookie Sundae or Fudge Brownie Sundae 10/01/13 – 10/31/13
November Free Large Coca-Cola Zero 11/01/13 – 11/30/13
December Free 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!

CVS Awesome Pampers Deal- Saved 73%!

Oct
28
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

Oct
28
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!

Oct
26
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!

Easy Chili Recipe plus Coupon for Canned Tomatoes

Oct
22
To make chili you need tomatoes. Print a free coupon from my website that makes DelMonte canned tomatoes only $.25 or $.50 per can at Harris Teeter through Tuesday night! You can print the coupon twice, too.

This cold 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 $.25 in Leland or $.50 a can at all other HT stores. 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.

CVS Freebies this Week!

Oct
21



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?
