This 10 coupon doubling thing is amazing! It is so easy to get to $25.00 before coupons when you are able to use 10. I am so busy today with work, and Christmas prep that I am not able to go. I sent my husband, but I only gave him two pretty easy transactions. It was kinda hard to figure out what coupons to use too, because I had some good size coupons on other things that weren't in the sale ad. I don't know what the regular price on those items are, though. I will still get some nice priced things on the items that were on sale, combined with the coupons that I have.

Where did you get $1.00 off 2 on the GG Steamers? I have .50 off one that came out in our paper.

Have a very Merry Christmas!

The $1.00 off of 2 were tearpad q's from Glad Plastic bags! When we went to Logli's last time, they had about 6 tearpads near the plastic bags. I looked at them and they had several coupons inside, including soda! We picked up several. Also, I picked up the bagel bite coupons from a red pull box at Piggly Wiggly, saved them and used them at Pick N Save. :)

Have a wonderful Christmas Penny! I always love hearing from you!
