Harris Teeter Brags 4/28

I was in and out pretty quick because I had a client meeting this morning. I did well (forgot to get eggs, though!). They have some good sale-priced items (no coupons) that I’ll go back for later today or tomorrow.

Anyway, here is what I got for $4.55. That’s down from $38.

$4.55 buys a lot during triple coupons at Harris Teeter

Another deal for Harris Teeter Triples

I’m updating the master list for Harris Teeter Triples Matchups, but I’d set this aside yesterday and just now looked it up. My bad! That Q was from the insert my sister sent me from California.

Nabisco Planters Big Nut-Rition Bars – Energy on sale for $2.50. Coupon from 2/21 SS for .75/1 makes these only 25¢ a box. Only available if your ordered Qs online.

New circular, new HT deals

There is a 55¢/2 coupon for Duncan Hines cake mixes in today’s (3/28/2010) SmartSource insert. Duncan Hines cake mixes are on sale for 99¢, making them only 2 for 33¢.

Lots of other coupons with deals worth making another trip for. I’m personally going to buy a few more newspapers at Dollar Tree.

Matchup List for Bloom Super Doubles 10/7-10/13

It’s still a work in progress, but it’s a start. If you’re familiar with my lists, I pretty much limit them to under a buck or two. Since I don’t get Red Plum circulars, I’m probably missing a bunch of good deals. Good luck shopping – we have several days ahead of us.

Saving with super-double coupons at Bloom

Bloom Super Duper Doubles

I never did put a decent list together for this event, I just have trouble getting that excited about it, and it’s tough to do a good list for Bloom without the ability to price items online. I did take the short lists that a few other bloggers had with me to the the store.

My first trip, which wasn’t until Saturday night, netting me this:

Spent lots more than usual on a couponing trip, but I was happy with what I got for my total of $15.71

All this for less than $11!

Even though I don’t love super doubles as much as triple coupon events, I still enjoy getting such good deals. There are a lot of them this week.

My total today was $10.83. That included buying chicken breast (bone in) for dinner tonight (on sale for $0.87/lb.), some pears, and lunch from the deli (two cooked leg-quarters, normally $3.99 marked down by $3, so only 99¢).

Anyway, enough jabbering… here’s the picture:

$10.83 for all of this! I'll be going back to Harris Teeter at least a few more times this week.

Harris Teeter Super Doubles 8/26 to 9/1

The spreadsheet is up. I’ve verified the prices for the Hanbury store and as many of the coupons as possible. I don’t get the RedPlum inserts — occasionally I get my hands on a copy, but not always (didn’t get ANY in July).

Lots of freebies. I left the negative numbers in the spreadsheet, even though HT doesn’t give overage anymore. At least you can tell where your biggest savings are.

Please let me know if you find any mistakes or I’m missing any really good deals.

Day 23 – AYGC

Shopping day!

I picked up a few essentials and some good deals on splurges at Harris Teeter on my way home from client meetings.

I decided against getting more steak, even though the NY strip was only $4.99 a pound. We just *had* steak, and I already had the beef for tonight’s burritos in the crockpot. The boneless, skinless chicken was BOGO, but their regular price is over $4 a pound, so that wasn’t all that great of a deal, and I still have some chicken. (I usually stock up when it’s about $1.80 a pound.)

I did splurge on a discounted cherry pie. $2 off (making it $3.99) because the top was cracked in a few places. Seemed to me the top shell was just pre-cut! And, since I splurged on the pie, I needed vanilla ice cream to go with it. I got the store brand for $2.50. Total splurges! With strawberries and blueberries on sale, I couldn’t resist them either. I also got 3 dozen eggs (at 88¢ each). Plus a loaf of bread and a package of hot dog buns. (once I get my second freezer I’ll buy the larger, cheaper packages of buns at Sams Club). Lastly, I bought a gallon of whole milk for another crack at homemade cheese, for a total of $19.02 including tax.

Like I said, dinner was shredded beef burritos with tomatillo sauce. The sauce was “okay”. I’ll be looking for a new recipe though, as I thought it should have had a LOT more flavor. I have more tomatillos from my garden and more on the plants.

The burritos were wrapped in homemade flour tortillas. Slightly thicker than the store-bought ones, but SO much tastier. And cheaper. I glanced at the flour tortillas at Harris Teeter and they were over $3 for a package of 8! (I’ve since looked at “express lane” and see that they have another brand that is much cheaper, but I don’t know where those are in the store.)

We topped the burritos with homemade salsa (made with tomatoes and jalapenos from the garden).

My kids teased me because the cheese was store-bought.

Dinner got an A+ rating from one kid and an A from the other. I like them to rate the dinners occasionally, especially when most of it is from scratch, to see if its worth all the trouble. Personally, I thought the meat was a B-.

I’d only made half the tortillas before dinner and finished them when we were done. They’ll make nice snacks, or perhaps another meal at the end of the week.

Tomorrow the new ads come out, so I’m sure I’ll be using more of my budget.
