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!
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.
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!

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.
