    Just when I thought I could come up for air (after HT triples) they go and run an excellent ad with tons of BOGO items with great coupon match ups! Arrrggghhhh, no rest for the weary LOL!

    With those deals at HT this week, I was still saving at 75% off regular price with BOGO's and coupons - so I just couldn't stay out of HT this week :)

    Of course I indulged - heh heh heh, got some coconut shrimp with mango sauce from Contessa which was a great deal, but more than I would normally spend at $1.50, two of those, also indulged in something I knew would make hubby happy, the sliced apple sides at $1.50 each too - which was $6 of the $31 I spent but hey, rewards have to be thrown in once in a while to keep the coupon gatherer happy LOL

  • reneeames Apr 2, 2010

    Butter is a rollback to $1.50 at Walmart

  • KLW Apr 1, 2010

    mommymatters...no they don't have to be in color. As long as the expiration date and the bar code are clear (especially the bar code) you're good to go. And to save paper, if I just print one coupon at a time I flip the paper around and print on the other end. Or if the coupon prints with an ad that covers the rest of that side of the paper, I'll turn it over and another coupon on the back side.

  • mommymatters Apr 1, 2010

    Just curious. Do the printable coupons have to be printed in color?
    Thanks!

  • CountryGirl10 Apr 1, 2010

    What newspapers and publications do you regularly get for coupons? I see All You magazine listed on some sites and I was wondering if it was any good. I also saw where you could be extra Sunday copies of the Raleigh N & O added to your regular subscription for and extra $1 a week up to 9 extra newspapers. I thought that was interesting.
    Thanks for all your help and hard work finding good deals for us !!
