I Love Double Coupons

Wow. This is an oldie, but goodie. Did I mention that I'm also a super-couponer? Well I am. This next post is an archived post from August 26, 2005. Oh how I wish we still had double coupons. Alas, I must live vicariously through my SIL in NY who just discovered she does have double coupons...after thinking she'd also have to live without.

Here's the post that made me cry...and is leaving me day-dreaming of "doubles" again (or dare I say triples?):

Double coupons at Albertson's started today. Yeah! My first purchase started the weekend off with a kick. I purchased $28 worth of items and paid a grand total of.....(drum roll, please)...3¢.

Yes, you read that right!

I purchased the following items: 4 boxes of Puffs, 2 cans of Iams cat food, 1 box of Happy Trails cat food, 1 (25ct) quart baggies, 2 cans of shaving cream, 2 (300ct) boxes of Q-tips, 1 bag of cotton rounds, 1 tube of Chapstick, 1 pumice stone and 1 (2pk) of soft nail buffers.
Plus, I came away from the purchase with a $7 coupon good off school supplies (the Puffs and baggies count as school supplies & net me a new coupon with each purchase), a $1 coupon for Kleenex that will make them free next time, and a $1 coupon for Happy Trails cat food that will make the cat food free plus give me an extra $1 to put towards something else on my next purchase.

So, I paid 3¢ for the above items (including taxes) plus have another $10 in free merchandise coming next time...and each time after that since the above $10 worth of offers repeat with every purchase! Yeah!

Did I mention that I love double coupons?
