I Can't Believe It!

Ever heard of Harris Teeter? It's a grocery store chain that's relatively new to my area. I always thought of it as a rather high-end store so had never gone in there. This week as I was researching CVS and Walgreen's deals I happened upon a website where I learned that Harris Teeter would be running a special promotion where they would be tripling coupons (up to $0.75). So I thought I'd try my hand at that. In two separate trips I purchased the following:

4 Packs Reynolds Baking Cups
4 French’s Classic Yellow Mustard
16 cans Campbell’s Tomato soup
8 cans Campbell’s Chicken Noodle Soup
9 Keebler Ready Crusts
5 lbs Johnsonville Breakfast Links
7 loaves Arnold Whole Grains Bread
9 packages Pillsbury Grands! Frozen Biscuits
1 Mahatma Jasmine Rice 2 lbs
6 packs Carl Buddig Cold Cuts
4 Viva Big Rolls

Cash out of pocket $48.30
Value of groceries: $221.90!!!!

I think I may have found a new money saving method to pursue...

How to Save Big Money on Groceries by Starting a Food Buying Club

Our grocery bill was killing us. With only one income and ten children including 4 ravenous teenage boys our grocery bill was out of sight. I just had to have a lower grocery bill. How could I get cheap groceries all the time? Comparison shopping at grocery stores helped. But I wanted wholesale groceries. One answer was to start a food buying club which cut our grocery bill in half! The deep discounts are unbelievable. Rice $0.31/lb! Baking Powder $0.13/oz! Non-fat Dry Milk Powder $1.77/gallon after mixing! Popcorn $0.43/lb! If you want to save money on groceries by the boatload this could be your answer, too!
