Welcome to an irreverent, not-at-all comprehensive blog about my couponing exploits in Montgomery County, Maryland, with some annoying cats sprinkled about. Try not to step on them; they get ever so cross. Also there may be some law stuff here and there, but not too much, because most law stuff is boring.

Harris Teeter Triple Coupons, Day 1!


Holy cat treats, catman!

I'm sorry, that was horrible.

MOVING ON...

I missed out on shopping Wednesday, the first day of Harris Teeter's triple coupon week, where all coupons up to 99 cents are TRIPLED instead of doubled - I KNOW! - so I have some catching up to do! If my first transaction looks huge, that's because I discovered some awesome deals in the ol' clearance carts - the Clear Eyes, Crave and Goodlife Recipe treats were all marked down 50%! And since the Goodlife and Crave treat coupons were $1.00 face values, they didn't apply for the tripling limit of 20 a day. So I ended up using 28 coupons instead, 31 if you count the $4 and $1 catalinas I used from a previous shopping trip, as well as a $5 Similac manufacturer check.

Bought 1 Fiber One cereal $3.00, regularly $4.75

And used 1 $0.75 e-Vic coupon (does not double/triple)
