I've let my coupon blog fall by the wayside -- so many things to do yet so little time. For a quick update, Harris Teeter and Kroger are running triples Wed-Tues this week, and today I went. It was a long and hard day because so many things went south (mainly due to both my and the cashier's incompetence), but I managed to spend right at $155 and got $644 worth of groceries, saving 67%. I'm VERY pleased and know that we won't need groceries again (sans milk and probably diapers) this month.

When I got home and had Kevin, Josh (and Braiden who was visiting) come out to help carry the stuff in, they all three were like, "WOW! That's a LOT of food" and it was -- back of SUV full and back seat pretty full. I think we are good to go well into December. I had a couple of credits at Harris Teeter for $20 (from purchasing prescriptions there) and used one of those to buy meat because I never have coupons for that. I have another one and will use it this week for some more meat. I want to stock the freezer for the winter so I won't have to think about meat for a while. Triples runs through Tuesday at both Harris Teeter in Nashville and Brentwood and at Kroger in Belle Meade and Bellevue.

I love it!!!!!! I wish we had a Harris Teeter OR a Kroger near us!!! Giant doubles coupons up to $.99 all the time, but their prices are higher than the commissary so it isn't always a great deal. I'm working on it still, though!!!!
