My shopping trip to Harris Teeter - 74% savings!

If you have ever considered clipping coupons but haven't tried it yet, this would be a good week to give it a shot...  Especially if you have a store nearby that doubles coupons...  And are considering having a Super Bowl party.  I won't be going to a party next Sunday but I will be eating plenty of nachos over the next couple of weeks.

Knowing that there would be some good coupons today, I bought two newspapers.  The two tubes of toothpaste, which I got for free, were enough to cover the cost of them.  Not that I really need more toothpaste...  Matt's mom, Sharon, gifted us with enough toothpaste to last us for a while.  But, hey, free is free and now I won't need to buy toothpaste for months.

Anyway.  Harris Teeter has some pretty good deals this week (until 1 Feb) and, combined with the coupons in today's paper, I spent $12.41.  I saved $34.08 which is a 74% savings.  Just to put things into perspective... I don't know if you have noticed but the Tostitos are family size bags.  At regular price, they run about $5 each.  Which means $12.41 couldn't even pay for two bags of chips and one jar of salsa.

**  To be able to get the sale price at Harris Teeter, you will need to have a store savings card.  If you don't have one, just go to the customer service desk and apply for it.

Why I will never again spend more than $1.00 for cheese

I try to eat healthy...  For the most part.  My lunch at work usually consists of romaine lettuce and tomato topped with about about 1 1/2 cups of raw broccoli...  Topped with about the same amount of shredded cheese.  Okay, maybe not quite a cup and a half but nevertheless a lot of cheese.

Not only do I eat a lot of cheese at work, I also eat a lot at home.  It is hard to keep paying for such an addiction, especially when the cheapest you can get 8oz of cheese is around $2.00. 

Lately I have been able to get a lot of brand-named cheese for a $1 or less by using my coupons during sales.  I have a good stock in the fridge so far.  Hopefully it'll be enough to last me until the next great bargain comes along...

Oh, wait.  Here's another deal courtesy of Totally Target.  Never again will I pay over a $1 for cheese.

At Target KRAFT shredded and block cheese are on sale for $2 each.  Use the two coupons below to get them for $0.88.  Remember, you can use both a manufacturer's coupon and a store coupon for the same item.  **KRAFT Touch of Philadelphia may not be included in the sale at some stores.

$1 off 2 KRAFT Shredded Cheese with a Touch of Philadelphia** (Vendor coupon)
$1.25 off 2 KRAFT Shredded or Block cheese  (Target coupon)

Shopping Trip

Today was a good day in shopping. I was able to get a lot of things that I normally buy, as well as some luxury items (cheese!), for very cheap. My total grocery bill between Publix and Harris Teeter was $20.55 and that includes a tub of yogurt and produce that I bought at regular price.
I saved $19.38, which equals to a 51% savings. A lot of the coupons should still be available online and I will link you to them if they are.

Free one-year subscription to McCafee Internet Security

Another tip from a co-worker of mine:

If you have an account with Bank of America you can get protected with McCafee Internet Security for free for 12 months or you can get a 2 year subscription for about $35.

After you log into your Bank of America account, type "mcafee" into the search engine. You should see the link pop up right away.

You will have to give McCafee your credit card information and cancel your account towards the end of the free subscription or you will automatically get protected for another year and they will charge you for it.

My co-worker didn't know this but my old internet security subscription was about to end in about a week. Sometimes you just get lucky. I just got it installed and the process took about 20 minutes.

Thanks Eric.
