Food Lion Triples Last Day

I had planned to do two shops yesterday - me and my hubby - but then got there and they were out of everything I was looking for. He had to work today, leaving me alone to make up yesterdays shops, and one more today, so I called my oldest son and him and his girlfriend came and went with me.

It was pretty funny, they knew I've been doing the coupon shopping, and I talk about how much I got and how little I spent, but today was really the first time they saw it in action. They were suitably amazed.

Actually I was pretty amazed myself when my son's order total came up to $ .00. I wasn't expecting that! He must have gotten some overage on something(s).

My OrderTotal Before Coupons $45.26
Total Spent $0.73 + .44 tax = $1.17

T's OrderTotal Before Coupons $47.17
Total Spent $5.10 + .71 tax = $5.81 (*$4.81)

*Got $1.00 OYNO Catalina for purchasing Velveeta Shells and Cheese cups
(Not pictured, 6 Velveeta Shells'n'Cheese cups I gave to them)

D's OrderTotal Before Coupons $42.34
Total Spent -$.55 + .55 tax = $0.00

Awesome! I am jealous that your Food Lion had triples. :) Awesome deals. The welch's jelly coupon reset! I am hoping for another triples somewhere that I can get some more free jelly.

I know how you feel, I felt the same when y'all's Krogers had triples last week before :-)

Maybe yours will have triples again soon.

These jellys were bought with the reset IPs. I had bought jelly to start with, then later found some coupons that gave .55 off milk wyb jelly....I don't know why I didn't see it to start with. But luckily the jelly coupons reset. I paid .34 for the gallons of milk and got the chocolatey milks for free. At .34 I wanted to buy 8 gallons of milk but was afraid it'd go bad before we could drink it all. Besides didn't have enough room in the fridges. I did think about getting it and giving it away, but I tell my family and tell them to come get stuff and they're always like, okay, I'm coming, and then they never come! The kids like chocolatey milk anyway, so I just got them some of that for free.
