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!

2 tubs Pampers wipes

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.

If you live in the Frozen Tundra, Green Bay Savers is a site to check out, too!

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!
