    I know I've shared about how I pretty much operate on the opposite schedule of most here when it comes to Super Doubles - last night was a perfect example, LOL. Yes - I had to get in two last shops before Super Doubles was over! (I chose a Harris Teeter and Lowes Foods that are close to each other, so I could hit both of them.)

    I did great at both, but my last shop at Lowes Foods ending up costing me only $1.49 for almost $13.00 of merchandise (after sale prices, coupons, and doubling,) which made it worth it.

    I think that last trip was pushing things a little bit, even for me though...I walked out of the Lowes Foods store at 11:38 PM! (Talk about cutting it close, LOL.)

    Thanks Faye! It was awesome as I have also learned how to plan ahead better... so there are none of those impulse buys nearly as much as there used to be!

    Oh no meredith88 - I am so sorry you got hurt!! I hope you heal quickly. I sprained my ankle 11 months ago and I still have pain here and there but it is so much better. Hang in there.

    Wow! Everyone did so great! I also shopped semi-vicariously through all of you this time around. I went to HT on Halloween night and got $80 worth of stuff for less than $15. I was planning on hitting both stores on Saturday and again last night however I fell down my stairs last Friday and sprained my ankle and broke my foot. I just didn't have the energy to go back to the store and juggle coupons while barely being able to walk. It's funny how much you miss the shopping when you aren't able to go. I've loved reading everyone else's stories and totals this past week!

    RaleighFoodBlogger - WOW!! That is amazing! You saved a ton of money! Thanks for sharing. :-)

    What a crazy, yet wonderful week of couponing! Just wanted to share my totals, as I'm so excited!!! I not only far exceeded my bi-weekly donation goals, but have spent less than ever in one week... and have a ton of awesome food in the pantry to help get me through the holidays! Total OOP $152.22. Total saved $535.94. YAY!!!

    larindap3 - We probably won't see another coupon event until the beginning of January, if they follow the schedule from last year.

    No brags here....have not been able to get to my new local Flowers HT for their first SD, been out of town. Any thoughts of when the Super Doubles will come back around? Tks.

    I'm beat! I think this is the first time I was able to really take full advantage of SD at both stores (due to being out on medical leave). I'm doing a candy buffet for a Christmas mixer and I have a good start on that. Thanks LF & HT. I don't think I will return to the store until the weekend and the deals need to be super awesome. Hope everyone else had a great shopping trip(s).

    Does anyone know if any Lowes Foods stores that have any of the Lindor Truffles left? (As opposed to the candy bar - I would inhale that in two second, LOL.) I was at the one on High House Road in Cary last night, and they were wiped out. Was planning on trying the one on Kildaire Farm Road tonight.

    The Harris Teeter on McCrimmons Corner in Morrisville was pretty much totally restocked on the Febreze Car Air Fresheners and Pop Secret.
