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. 🙂

-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. 🙂
