I was awoken WAY TOO EARLY today. Well, my sister wouldn’t think so, but 4:30am is not my favorite “get up” time. But today it worked out because I sneaked away to use some Albertsons’ “twice the value” coupons and was able to score big! I got $78 worth of grocery products for $24. That is an overall savings of 83%! Hooray! I did three transactions (split because of twice the value coupon policy) and for one I owed $0! And another I owed $2. Love that! I got a handful of items for FREE, including pasta and facial tissues. One of the items on my list regularly costs $20 and I found a clearanced equivalent for half that price and bought a gallon of milk included in my total this morning. I am super excited about this. I know many of you don’t really care, but too bad. It’s MY blog! For those who DO care about such trivial matters, read on for details. πŸ™‚

-4 Tillamook yogurts
-4 boxes facial tissue
-2 boxes angel hair pasta
-2 bags Hershey’s Bliss
-8 cans Progresso soup
-2 boxes Princess fruit snacks
-1 gallon milk (no sale, no Q)
-2 pkgs night sleepers (clearance, no Q)
-2 Breyers ice cream (1.5qt sz)(no dblQ)

Unless marked, It was on sale and I had a coupon and a doubler! I did have to purchase newspapers for the 9 twice the value coupons I used–and that was an additional $3.50 for the papers I chose. Still a great deal at $27.50, especially considering I would normally have spent about $23 just on the night sleepers and milk!

Sorry for the mundane specifics, but I REALLY LOVE a great deal on products I (mostly) buy anyway! And I enjoy it more as I share it over and over! (The Hershey’s was a splurge on clearance and with a coupon I found in the store on a display which made them about .50/bag.)

Happy deal hunting!

P.S. Matt said he would have liked the option to stop reading if you don’t care. But it was not–nor will it likely ever be–available to him. πŸ™‚
