Double Coupons, Double Love

Be still my couponing heart!

I know it isn't Saturday, but I couldn't help posting this! We only have one grocery store which doubles coupons here in town. The said store only doubles coupons 2 days per week (Wed. and Sat.) and will only double the value of 5 coupons AFTER your total has reached $25.00. Sounds like a lot of restrictions, and it does require some figuring, but it is still possible to get HUGE discounts.

Today the store, Copps, was having a special Super Doubles Day. Today, you could double 10 coupons with each $25.00 transaction. I'll say it again - be still my couponing heart!

I checked out three, yes three, different times at Copps this morning. Only the littlest Young'un was with me today, so no older kids were subjected to the embarrassment such a number of trips through the check out lines would certainly have caused.

The deals were great!

Are you drowning in your food bills? Groceries are one of the easiest items to trim in your family's budget. I KNOW you can spend less than you are right now! Start searching the internet - Money Saving Mom should be your first stop. This site is the mother off all couponing/frugal living sites on the web. Money Saving Mom has the best deals for stores all over the US listed on her site and update weekly. There is also a ton of other information about how to save money in ways other than grocery shopping on the site.

I'm no expert, but I'm happy to share what I know, too. Just ask!

PS- I also swang by Target today and got a bottle of Olay body wash and a 10 pack of Ivory bar soap for $1.50. The body wash will be donated to the Woman's Shelter in town, I was after the bar soap for 15 cents per bar!


  1. I still don't know how you do it!! The most I have ever saved was $17 on a grocery trip. You are incredible!!
