super doubles -fruit and veggie co-op

May 17th, 2010 at 06:10 pm

Starting Wednesday local HT will be having super doubles.

I never get quite as much out of this as others, but I figure with a couple months of buying the paper, I aught to have some of the good coupons to use.

W bought from a fruit and veggie co-op a couple times. I priced out the food based on the HT website and the total came to over $30. Our cost was 17.50

While I bet some items I would have waited for sales, and others bought cheaper versions I still think it was a good deal. Plus it forces me to look up what to do with spaghetti squash. (Last week was acorn squash)

CVS fun

Husband took a trip to CVS earlier this week.

2 tubes toothpaste (normal size)
1 box kotex
2 things of lotion

used a coupon each, plus 6 'extra bucks' earned from previous weeks. Paid $6 out of pocket, and now have $16 in 'Extra bucks'.

Now on the one hand we made money...on the other we will have to use that money at CVS, but they frequently have diapers and TP on sale, plus coupons, so I don't really see that as being a big problem.

On the down side the bonus money for Walgreens expired while we were in PA, and I forgot to take them with us, or use them up first, lost $5 that way Frown.

Lost the reciept

No terribly important but I was going to go over the receipt and see how the deals worked out, unfortunately I lost it.

But we did have to go back for a quick run today, and paid 9.96 for pretzels, granola bars, cheese, lunch meat. Apparent savings of 11.26

Not really as impressive as the last trip, but this was odds and ends we wanted for the drive.

Well the lunchmeat is for lunch tomorrow, going to science center, and can't pack PB, the folk we are with are allergic to peanuts.
