  1. Wow Karrie!!! The albertsons trip is impressive. How many transactions did you do all that in??? I am still trying to figure out how you did that! 🙂 Great.

  2. Yup, still the champion couponer! IMPRESSIVE!!!

  3. I’m also curious how many transactions …. I see two Blink Tears in the Walgreens stuff so I assume two there? You can’t get two of those in the same transaction, can you?

  4. AWESOME!! I knew when I saw you at Albertsons it was going to be good! Plus it looks like one of the dure deordants from rite aid has a “try me free” sticker. If you go to the website on the sticker you can get a $2.99 rebate – making it even better!

  5. At Albertsons I had 5 transactions.. At Walgreens I only bought ONE Blink Tears, but it was a specialty package with two in them –it said on the outside Buy One get one FREE (Score!!)
    Shaylene — woo hoo you are right! Bonus… 🙂

  6. Nicely done! Of course this does explain why Albertons was out of cereal by the time I made it there after work.

  7. WOW!!!!! That’s just unbelievable!!

  8. Hey Jenn, Actually the Pasco Store had hundreds of boxes of life cereal still there when I left…HUNDREDS!! Call ahead and see if they still have tons 🙂

    I was super bummed that all the flavored oatmeal was gone when I got to Albertsons 🙁 but I did 3 transactions and spent $116.39 and saved $154.61. My checker was awesome he helped with everything to make sure I got the most out of the coupons I had! I got 16 Airwick Air freshners for $4…..

  10. Wow, my eyes just about popped out of my head! You inspire me!!!
    .-= Kristin´s last blog ..Mr. and Mrs. Noah =-.

  11. I’m very impressed, but I think it would be a lot more helpful if you had a breakdown on how you did it.

  12. Fabulous! I’m still trying to finish up my Quaker buys at Albertsons today. It’s getting to be slim pickings in Spokane (I did buy 55 items already:). I’m thinking it’s time for a rain check!
    .-= suckerpunchdebt´s last blog ..January Grocery Totals =-.

  13. WOW!

    OH, and my Albertson’s (or maybe it was safeways?) manager said if you buy a lot it’s a good idea to call ahead, so other customers aren’t disapointed by empty shelves.
    Of course, that manager guy was a little crazy…I was only buying 15 boxes of cereal and he was asking me if I was selling it!
    “No…we eat cereal.” (strange)

    Do you ladies ever get questioned a ton?

  14. I’ve never seen anything like it! (beginner here)
    I’m in AZ and we don’t have a Quaker sale at Albertsons 🙁

  15. Wow!! I am really impressed!!

  16. Can give me a break down on how you did your Rite Aid purchase? I know there is a 7.99 rebate on the contact solution and 2.00 on the toothpaste, but boy….I really wanna know how you did that. Thanks

  17. Oh yeah! I forgot to ask on the Rite Aid rebates, didn’t you mention that you can only cash them out once, per month? Does it run by regular month to month or does it run by how the rebates run?

  18. You are my hero!! I just went to your class last Friday and was beginning to feel a little overwhelmed – but this is inspiration!! I would love a breakdown example of how to do that at Albertsons…

  19. can you tell us what coupons you used at the stores? I can never figure out how you guys get your shopping trips down so low! I can save about 50% but usually not more than that.
    I would love to know how you do it if you would be willing to share. I know it must take a lot of time to type it all out so if you don’t have it I totally understand.

  20. I love that there is one apple!
