Tops Shopping Trip: I paid $9.81 for $141.05 worth of groceries!
I have been couponing for a long time so I rarely get nervous when I’m checking out. I had such a huge stack of coupons this week that I was actually feeling nervous and excited as I went through the checkout line. It has bee a long time since I had a single order that was this large. I really dislike that coupon show (you know the one) because I feel like it has caused a lot of stores to tighten up their coupon policies, ruining it for the rest of us. However, I almost felt like I was on TV as I watched the cashier ring off all my coupons. It was a total coupon high!
Here’s a list of everything that I got at Tops yesterday. Everything in BOLD was FREE!

Did you go shopping this week? Were you able to score any of these deals, or did you find any great deals of your own? I would love to hear the details!
TPR = Temporary Price Reduction
OYNO = On Your Next Order
Did you use any coupons towards the cat food? You don’t list one.
No. I didn’t have any Purina coupons. I really need to contact them again for more coupons. I got two because I needed to spend a little more to get over $100 so I could get the $10 off with the Tops coupon.
I am impressed! This is couponing at its best! 🙂 Way to go!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks, Kristi! I haven’t had a haul this good in a LONG time.
Also, if you ever get one of those tiered mailer coupons (Save $xx off $xx) scan it first before any other coupons. It will use the pre-coupon total so you will save even more.
I’m very impressed! I have one more of those mailer coupons and I might try some of your suggestions. My last one I used for $7 off and paid about $40.
