Total: $5.40
After 3 Doublers: $2.40

4 Quaker Chewy Granola Bars $1.49 ea

-use 2 $.75/3 Birds Eye Steamfresh
Total: $7.70
After 3 Doublers: $4.49 and get a cat for FREE eggs.

All of the above mentioned coupons can be found HERE.

I know I'm purchasing a lot of the Idahoan Potato Pouches, but I plan on making a special order and I'm starting to stock up for camping this summer. Not all of my deals are very low out of pocket, but I have some $1 cats from last week that I will be using. I'm also doing 4 transactions (if not more) so I will do 3 and then go back and to the rest. As far as getting enough doublers, I will be receiving 1 paper on my lawn (1 set of doublers), purchase at least 1 (second set), and will ask for doublers at customer service (the rest).  The best way to get the best deal is by trying to use 3 $1 coupons in each transaction. This will make the doublers save you even more (example T1). Also, Please note 3 of the above transactions show a purchase of 10 items that are included in the mix and match promo. It actually is a good deal to have 10 items that qualify because a lot of coupons are for 2 or more products. I hope this helps those who had some question and, please, let me know if you have more.
Happy Couponing!

  1. Thanks so much!!! I am still learning and it seems no matter how much I read, experience is what I need to get better. While I've been couponing since I was a kid (I remember helping my mom clip coupons), it's only been recently I've been trying to take my average savings from 50% to more extreme savings. It definitely is a skill and talent to mathmatically figure this all out and have the eyes to spot the deals!!! Sure appreciate your time in this blog! Also got the coupons today....Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. OKAY, so I ordered 3 cases of Idahoan potato pouches (12 in each).
    If I get everything else than I will purchase the following for just about $4.
    36 Idahoan Potato Pouches
    6 Jell-O Temptations
    4 Nabisco Crackerfuls
    4 Quaker Granola Bars
    1 Finish detergent
    1 item over $.50
    AND I'll earn FREE eggs!
