Coupon Craziness 13 – The $2 Super Doubles Edition

Whooo boy was this a week for deals!

My first stop was a K-mart on Sunday for $2.00 super doubles.  Traverse City NEVER does super doubles.  I was soooo excited.

Not my best but the batteries were an expensive (but necessary) addition.   AND I got enough of a good deal on Unilever stuff to meet the $40 minimum for $20 back on my turkey for Easter.   Yippee!!!

I went back on Monday because I hit my 25 coupon limit halfway through my pile on Sunday.   I had to go out to Acme for my Monday Mommy Group and left early to stop there and hit the last half of my list.   It’s been a long time since I’ve been there and I was surprised at how much nicer an experience I had there.   It was clean, well-lit and it helped that my checkout lady was a couponer herself 🙂

I bought:

  • 2 Rubbermaid LidFinder containers – on clearance for $2.00 each – $1/1 MFQ = FREE!!!  And they are the size I ALWAYS need more of even though I bought the giant set.
  • All 2x Free – $4.79 on sale – $1/1 MFQ = $2.79
  • All Small & Mighty – $4.79 on sale – $0.40/1 MFQ = $3.99
  • 4 jumbo packs of Huggies Supreme/Gentle Care diapers = $9.99 – $1.50/1 MFQ = $6.99 – Caregivers Marketplace rebate = $6.24
  • 4 packs of Huggies wipes (various) – $2.50 – $0.75/1 MGQ = $1.00 each!
  • 4 Marcel toilet paper 4 packs – $2.89 – $1/1 MFQ = Free!!!   Apparently the coupon came up with the whole package being free instead of $1.00 off and the lady couldn’t change it if she wanted to 🙂
  • 1 Jet Dry rinse Agent – $4.99 – $0.40/1 MFQ = $4.19
  • 2 Ziplock Quart Freezer bags – $2.50 – $1/2 MFQ = $1.50 each

I also bought 4 packs of Kotex Lightdays and I had 2 $1.50/2 coupons which don’t appear to be on there and a Ziplock baggie coupon for $0.55/1 that isn’t on there either.  Huh.   Arggg.   Airhead alert.  I never GAVE her the lightdays coupons.    I guess I’m going to return them and see if the other k-mart still has some, but I doubt it.  I think I bought the last ones Sunday.
