I'm ready for triple coupons to start at Harris Teeter tomorrow!!

I have my coupons ready:

And my rainchecks, just in case!

And my slowly growing price book!

I can't wait! Also tomorrow is lunch with mom and dad, and youth group tomorrow night, so it will be a very good day!

Today was a lot of fun because Brianna and I met Jenn and Claire for lunch at Chick Fil-A. We had just a few spurts of fuss between the two of them, but at least Jenn and I can find comfort in the fact that neither baby is perfect in public.

After lunch, I made a trip to Walgreens to buy a few items on sale. What I ended up with were savings so good I immediately called Jenn and mom to have them share in my excitement! And like a good sister and mother, they acted completely interested and excited for me! Now I'm going to share it here, partly because mom said to and partly because I feel like it will make up for my triple coupons tomorrow if I don't do so well.

4 rolls of toilet paper
3 boxes of Kleenex
3 rolls of paper towels
1 bottle of Listerine
1 brownie

Total amount spent: $1.67

Now, this is the funny part. With all my coupons, I actually saved too much money and the coupons wouldn't go through. I had to purchase the brownie (right beside the register) just so the transaction would complete! And another funny thing I realized when showing this to Stephen tonight - my total before taxes was a mere $0.92. Then a sales tax of $0.75 was tacked on - almost as much as my entire purchase price! Isn't that crazy?? So funny. So I spent $1.67 and saved $13.30. Oh, and got $2 in coupons for my next visit. It definitely put me in the mood for triple coupons!

P.S. Last week at Walgreens I had another great buy. They had Palmolive dishwashing soap on sale from $1.99 to $0.99 and I had a $1.00 coupon. Since it ended up being $0.00, I had to pay taxes on NOTHING! I got it for $0.08!! Hilarious!

You inspire me to clip coupons, but we never eat at home. We have a coupon book for eating out. So we both ate at Chick-fil-a for about $3.
