Harris Teeter Super Doubles Trip

My obsession with couponing began when I was in high school.  Several of our local stores would offer a double coupon day, so I would gather together the coupons from my grandparent's Sunday paper and start clipping.  That was back in 1983, and things have only gotten better since then!  I still take the coupons from my grandma's paper, and now I get my own, as well as online coupons and e-coupons.  As you know, my Daddy passed away in February, and my desire to do my normal things vanished.  Well, I've had my daddy on my mind and I realized it was time to get back to normal.  Daddy would want it that way.  He always loved to hear about my shopping trips, and what goodies I got for him.

Harris Teeter was running super doubles this week, which means they will double any coupon up to a $2 face value.  My mind started racing, and with limited time, I got together some coupons and ideas for my trip.  Hot Coupon World is a huge help for me because other shoppers share their finds, and we can help each other!  Harris Teeter was out of a lot of things, but I was happy with what I did get.  Here is a picture of what I got...
