I had fun doing the Betty Crocker/General Mills promo at Harris Teeter on Thursday! I ended up getting a total of 10 great items for $9.00 plus tax!
All of the items are on sale and even better, they all have matching coupons (both printable and digital EVIC coupons). Plus if you spend $25 you get $5 off instantly. You can see more info here about that deal, along with a great money-saving scenario.
Get items you really use: I coupon for my family’s needs, not necessarily just because something is a good deal. In fact, this scenario has you getting 11 items for $0.63 each. However, I did not do that particular scenario because in my home we don’t consume fruit snacks. So although they help make a great deal, they are of no use to me so I selected different items.
Organize your trip. I can’t say this enough! Decide what items you want to buy, write them down so you don’t forget (or use the printable list feature on this website), then pull the coupons and place them in either an envelope or better yet, a sleeved section of your coupon binder. I use a binder while shopping so I have a table to work off of and it helps me stay organized better than an envelope. Also, as I put the items in my cart, I place it’s corresponding coupon in the “to redeem at checkout” sleeve in my binder. That way, I don’t forget to use the coupons when I pay. It’s kind of hard to forget your coupons when you have a big binder sitting in front of you on your cart!
Here’s some pics and a video:
I typed up the items that I wanted that added up to $25. Then I included any physical coupons I wanted to use. Then any digital EVIC coupons that I wanted to use. This gave me my final out of pocket price!
I put all the coupons I need in the “Harris Teeter” sleeve of my binder. This way I have them ready for the shopping trip. I use my favorites- the 3-pocket couponing sleeves. You can get those here, a set of 25 for $6.00 (shipping is available or do local pickup in Wilmington, NC).
Then when the item goes in my cart, I immediately place the coupon in the “too redeem at checkout” section of my binder. This way, I don’t forget it when I get to the register.
