Just moved out of state from CA and I totally understand...no double coupons in CA for the most part...I have found Walgreens to have some really great deals which _kinda_ is like double coupons...for example:
A bar of soap is $2, if you buy it, you get back a Register Reward (coupon) for $2 good for anything in the store on your next purchase making the original bar of soap "free" since you're using your $2 RR off on toilet paper (lets say). to make it an even BETTER deal is if you get a coupon for that bar of soap from the Sunday paper for $.75 off! Soooo:
Bar of soap: $2.00
Total out of pocket: $1.25
But get a Register Reward for $2 (kinda like making your money back PLUS $.75) for use on another item that hopefully you have another coupon for so your $2RR becomes $2RR Plus whatever your new coupons is for...
The challenge is to buy an item that:
1) Is on sale
2) Offers a RR
3) You have a coupon for
Sounds super challenging but it really works...it's how I get all my laundry soap and toothpaste and various items for free.
I HOPE that made sense
(took me a while to get it)
