If you didn't know, Harris Teeter and Lowes Foods are BOTH offering Super Doubles this week. I took two trip to Harris Teeter over two days and also made one tirp to Lowes Foods. Thanks to Amanda from The Frugal Beach Bum Blog, I found a ton of things for free! I actually ran into her Wednesday morning at the Harris Teeter in Mayfaire, and I'm so glad I did. She saved our family a ton of money!
Overall, I spent about $50 for $211 worth of goods! That's nearly an 80-percent savings!

This was the first time I got up early to go shopping during Super Doubles... and honestly, I think it's worth it. There's less hassle and more products. I don't know why I did't do it before (well, actually, I do... I like to sleep.)
But, by going Wednesday, the early bird got more than the worm - I got everything I wanted on my list... and then some!
First of all, here's what I bought at Harris Teeter ($42 for $151):
And, here's what I bought at Lowes Foods ($20 for $78):
RNO = Raleigh News and Observer
SS = Smart Source
RP = Red Plum
*The coupon inserts in the Sunday newspaper are typically made from Smart Source, Red Plum or Proctor and Gamble. I typically buy the Raleigh News and Observer because it tends to have more coupons than the Wilmington Star News. I also use www.coupons.com.
