Unfortunately, the best deals were gone today at my HT.
But I still saved $30.00. FWIW, Kroger always has double coupon days up to and including 50 cents.

Ive saved thousands of $ which allows us to spend money on other fun things. Couponing also allows me to donate food/toiletries to the food pantry.

Lowes Foods actually doubles up to $0.99

I spend about 1 hour per week making my grocery list and 3 hours shopping. I usually stop at Harris Teeter, Kroger and Lowes Foods. What I dont find on sale, I buy at SuperTarget. I also shop the ECB deals at CVS. On an average week I save atleast $100, divided by 4 hrs - $25 per hour for my effort aint bad.

I spent $100 at HT this week and saved $70........and of that $100, almost $20 was milk (yep, we drink a lot). I also used their $10 off of $50 that they send out. The coupons I used were just out of the Sunday paper each week. Coupons don't take that much time to use--I probably spend about an hour each week matching up coupons with grocery store sales.
