I had a marathon grocery shopping expedition today. I went to Mighty Dollar, Lowe's Foods, Harris Teeter, Bi-Lo (all 3 of the grocery stores double coupons) and last but not least Wal-Mart.
I used coupons at every single store except for Mighty Dollar (they sell everything for $1 so no coupons allowed) and bought only the specials that I had coupons for. As I mentioned earlier, all 3 of the regular grocery stores double coupons so I got most of my coupons doubled on the sale items I bought.
I found the coolest thing at Mighty Dollar that will help me to be more organized at each grocery store I go to. It's a recloseable 7 section file folder that I can label and put all of my different store flyers, e-coupon lists that I print out, coupons, grocery list, etc. for each individual grocery store that I shop at. This way I can take the entire folder in with my coupon box as it's very lightweight and I can even take it in with me at Wal-Mart to price match prices from the various store flyers without forgetting them.
