Double Double Trip at Pick N Save...the good, the bad and the ugly!!!

Whew, what an adventure to Pick N Save today.

The good news is that I spent $54.91 on $257.96 worth of groceries! It was 7 transactions (70 double coupons).

The bad new is that there was a man there who HOARDED everything he could. He was a shelf clearer and I noticed him using coupons on items that weren't on the coupon! ( I knew because I had the same coupon and was trying to buy items and he was grabbing other items not on the coupon). This is the ultimate frusteration for me! Please don't shelf clear ( unless there is like 2 on the shelf!) Share this fun with others. Please don't misuse coupons. The manufactures will lower the values and shorten the time frames OR just not print coupons at all!

The ugly news was that there was a SEVERE thunderstorm and in the middle of shopping, we were ushered into the dairy cooler while the storm came through! Cars were damaged, trees went was crazy! We had to drive home around a police stop because a tree fell on a car!

So, now, I have a picture of my first trip, not my second.

I was chaperoning a F/Trip, so I was not able to do dbl daze yesterday, but of well. I know there is another one on 6/25th, and spending the day with my kids was a lot more important to me than double coupons. I missed one, but there will be more! :) Good haul for you, but...I wanted to ask you where you were able to get the $1.00 off 1 jar Ragu coupons? Those could go very nicely with the wags Unilever deal that is going on next week. TTYL! Penny :)

You are sooo right, there will be other deals!

I got the Ragu coupons from Dollar General. They were on a tear pad. They said Manufactures coupon. They were a good deal because I needed spaghetti sauce!

Glad you got to enjoy a field trip!
