Triple Coupon Sale!!!

Last week I went to Shelby (30 minutes away) to a triple sale at Harris Teeter. I did okay, but they have a lot of restrictions. You can triple 3 like coupons and only 20 per day. I saved about $50 and was talking with the cashier. She said that they weren't very busy because everyone was at the BiLo triple sale!!

What, we have a BiLo in Gaffney!! I haven't heard about a triple sale and just drove 30 minutes to come here. Come to find out, the triple sale wasn't in Gaffney, but it was at all 3 of the BiLo's in Gastonia (about 40 minutes from our house).

When I got home I talked with Brenda and we decided to go ahead and check it out. When we got there, there was no triple sign posted out front or in the building. It wasn't in the sale paper. We stopped and asked the manager and she said yes mam, have a good time. The only limit - only 10 of the same item!!!

We did so good, buy I didn't have many coupons left since my coupon lady on the Internet stopped selling them. We got all we could.

Sunday when the papers and new coupons came out I got 10 papers at Wal-Mart. I gathered up all the coupons and Troy and I hit all 3 BiLo's first thing Monday morning.

Here are our totals for my shop with Brenda and then 3 with Troy...

Totals groceries purchased $765. Total Money spent $147!!!! Money saved $618!!!! YEAH!!! I LOVE TRIPLE SALES LIKE THAT!!!

Maybe I can get some pictures of my pantry taken soon?? Some of my freebies were soy sauce, soap, shampoo, conditioner, frozen biscuits, teriyaki sauce, deodorant (men's and women's), hot sauce, pasta salad, ranch dressing, rice mixes, potato chip dip, butter, gum... That's just off the top of my head. Stocked up on a lot of soda's (all caffeine free - Sierra mist, lemonade - yellow and pink, a new orange Sierra mist, Hawaiian punch, tea, diet Pepsi) for this summer's outings.

Right now I am working on filling up my freezer. Food Lion is having hamburger for $.99/ lb this week. I try and never buy it for more than that. We usually use 5 to 7 pounds / meal and that is about my limit for meat. We love meals from hamburger - tacos, spaghetti, hamburgers on the grill, Beef Nacho Casserole, Enchilada casserole in the crock pot, I use a little in soups. Liking Mexican and Italian as much as we do, it seems there is always meals to make needing hamburger!!
