so far...I've gone to Harris Teeter each day, equipped with my TWENTY best coupons! (You can only use 20 per day)
A good tip is to buy the items that are the best deal (ie FREE) at the beginning of the week-long sale. Towards the end of the week, the stores start running out of the best sale items!)
So far, here are the results:
Coupons used: 40
Spent: $24.60 (avg $0.57 per item)
Saved with Coupons: $72.16
Saved with Coupons Plus VIC Specials: $89.90
Yay! This is so much fun!
The McCormick's Spices were FREE. The Worsteshire was FREE. The French's onions were FREE (those will be great for green bean casserole!) The Brownie mixes were $0.49 each. The Tobasco was $0.10 ea. Smart Balance Peanut Butter was $0.75. Rices, pastas and sauces were roughly $0.50 each, and the toothpaste and toothbrushes were roughly $0.25 each!
Remember, if you want to do this: THE KEY IS TO STACK YOUR COUPONS, MEANING, YOU USE COUPONS ON TOP OF SALE PRICES!!!

If you are looking for coupons for specific items, go to Coupon Divas Coupon Database. You can enter the specific brand name ("Philadelphia") or a general description ("sour cream"), and they will give you a list of all of the current coupons and what sales flyer/date you can find them in! This is a great reason to save all of your Sunday paper sales flyers in a box, then you can go dig them out when you find out about a great coupon you'd like to use from that date!
Happy Thursday, and Happy Savings!
