no pictures, thanks to Blogger
Double coupon shopping is not new around this town. However, doubling $1 coupons is unheard of according to all store rules. So, I was extra happy. I pictured a good day with cheaply bought items.
I did forgo the coupons that were for $1 off two $5.99 products, items/products that I do not use. Luckily, there were more than usual $1 coupons in the Sunday paper today. Every coupon I used, even the $0.75 ones were in today's paper, I think. I stuck mostly to things I already buy or were almost free.
Blogger has decided I don't get to post pictures tonight, so use your imagination.

And, I brought home 2 cans of soup, 4 red pens, 14 oz pasta, 2 toothbrushes, tube of toothpaste, and cloth tape. Oh me, oh my.
That may be a personal best. Maybe I should have left those four red pens. ???
Do your stores offer double coupons on $1 coupons? None do around here. Do you take advantage of special coupon days, like today at our store?
