It’s Sunday  morning and I had to make a quick run to Harris Teeter because we only had one egg.  Sunday morning breakfast is a tradition at our house – eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy and in the summer a fresh tomato.  So, it wouldn’t do to only have one egg.  I knew eggs were on sale at Harris Teeter – a dozen was only $0.97 with my e-Vic card.

I grabbed a few other coupons since I knew it was Super Double Coupon week and headed out.  After about 45 minutes of shopping here is what I left the store with

12 pack of Lemon Propel $5.49 ($8.99) on sale for $6.99  used $1.50 off catalina coupon (I though it was going to double, but missed the fine print way off to one side that said “Do Not Double”  It didn’t matter because this is something we drink a lot of, so I was happy for the coupon.)

4 boxes of Shredded Wheat Honey Nut cereal $1.00 each ($3.95) on sale 2/$4.00 used (2) $1.00/2 coupon (doubled to $2.00 each)

Blue Bunny Ice Cream $0.95 ($5.89) on sale BOGO used $1.00 off coupon

After spending some time looking at coupons I had, printing others and matching them with some sales at Harris Teeter, I ventured off on my first shopping trip.  Fortunately, Harris Teeter was having a “Super Coupon” special.  This meant that they would be doubling the value of coupons up to $2.  Usually they only double coupons with a face value of $0.99 or less, so this can be a great deal.  Here is what I came home with.
