I love Triple Coupons

Today was the final day of Triple Coupons at Harris Teeter, and I finally got my act together and made it to the store.

And what a fruitful trip it was.

I purchased close to $60 worth of groceries for $15, thanks to tripled manufacturer's coupons. The way I see it, my savings was even more impressive than that. Included in my grocery purchase as a loaf of artisan bread (a special treat for our dinner tonight) that cost about $4.50. So, I really got all my groceries for $10.

Obviously, I came up with quite a few almost freebies: 2 bottles of Pledge spray, OxiClean stain remover, lettuce, Chex Mix, six rice and pasta mixes, lettuce, a frozen pie, cereal and some other odds and ends.

I had other things on my list, but the store was sold out of some of the items that would have been free with triple coupons. I've found that's often the case, even if you go shopping very early on the first day of the sale.

So, the trip wasn't as fruitful, as it could have been, but I was able to get quite a few things that we really needed and some other things that we'd been wanting to try, but wouldn't have at full price.

Why can't every day be triple coupon day?
