Go to Harris Teeter Today

Yesterday was the 7th anniversary of my dad’s death and I thought I would maybe do a blog about him but I just wasn’t up to it so…instead I thought I’d tell you about a great deal at Harris Teeter.  If you go today (I think the sale ends tomorrow, but I’m not 100% sure…new deals begin on Wednesday and not sure if this will continue after today), print out 2 coupons (link below) for $1.85 off a Birds Eye Voila!

Currently they are B1G1 Free at Harris Teeter so that makes each one only .84 Cents (normally they are $5.38 each)!  Wes and I are able to get dinner for the two of us, plus lunch for me the next day out of 1 bag.  We really like the Garlic Chicken.  I can’t believe how good it is for the price and it only takes 10-13 min. to heat it up in a skillet (which also means you only have to wash 1 pan!)

Birds Eye Voila! 22oz for .84 cents!  FOR REAL.

Soup Supper and Super Doubles

Happy New Year!

With the chilly temps that have settled in, we opted for a soup & grilled cheese night.  I found this recipe for Tomato-Basil-Parmesan Soup on Pinterest and it was yummy.  Even Wes, who is picky about tomatoes, went back for a second bowl.  Only things I changed…I used 1/2 cup of half and half and 1 and 1/2 cups of skim milk.  I think next time I may just use all skim milk.  Also, I used low-sodium chicken broth and omitted the salt.  Parmesan cheese is really salty, so taste your soup first before you add the salt!

Now I’m off to shop at Harris Teeter (HT Express online).  Super Doubles starts tomorrow…that means any coupon under $1.98 face value will be doubled (even some that say “Do not double” still double!)

Have I told you yet?

I’m thankful for Harris Teeter Express.

If you know me already, you may be sick of hearing how obsessed I am with the new Harris Teeter Express.  I’m convinced that this new service was made just for me. Both Wes and I have determined that the $4.95 fee actually saves us money.  How is that?  I usually have at least $4.95 in coupon savings, but mostly it saves me from the extra things I suddenly need once I’m inside HT.  Eggs? Check. Bread?  Check.  Yummy cheese, new brand of yogurt, extra bottle of wine, gum, magazine, oreos…hey, they were on sale…

I am a planner.  I like to plan out what I’m going to buy and what coupons I’m going to use.  The planning usually takes up to an hour to do…then I still have to go get it and shop for it which can take an hour or longer (especially if I’m using coupons or if it’s senior discount day).  But now I just make one list.  When I’m done with the list, I just hit “order.”  Right after I delete a few things to get my total down to what I want it to be, of course.  Then I  just pull up in front of Harris Teeter at the time I chose (you can order up to 6 days ahead) and someone loads them in the car and swipes my debit card.  So far, I’ve spent less time and a lot less money grocery shopping.  What has impressed me even more:  I always get a phone call prior to my pickup time notifying me my order is ready early and asking if there is anything I forgot or would like to add!  Harris Teeter did not pay me to say any of this, I promise.  Give it a try and see for yourself.  Thank you Harris Teeter.

Okay…on to other things.  I’m guest blogging today about the Pinehurst Turkey Trot (a race sponsored by FirstHealth) over on sandhillsDig.com, so go check it out.  Thank you awesome November weather.

Also, I’ve been meaning to post this photo of Rand and Jonathan.  It was my favorite photo from our recent trip to the mountains.  Not only is it a fun moment captured, but also wows me because I never would have imagined that my sweet friend from way back in the 5th grade would be holding my son one day.  AND that our sons would be 1 week apart AND that his wife would become a great friend of mine too.  Thank you Lord for old friends!

Zulily wins

While I am loving the new “express checkout” at Harris Teeter (you order your groceries online and then choose a time to pick them up…you can order up to 6 days in advance!  great for “planners” like me)…I got sucked in to the Zulily daily email today and ended up using some store credit to buy Rand one of these:

It is supposed to work in highchairs too.  And since Rand loves to chew on everything, I’m hoping this (and lots of prayer) will save us from some cold-season bugs.  It was a hard decision…there were 3 that I thought were super cute, but we only need one.

 

See you at Harris Teeter…it is Super Doubles this week!

Thank you CVS. Thank you Shelley.

This past weekend at CVS, there was a great deal on baby products.  While Rand hasn’t needed much formula yet, I’ve stocked up for when he does (or we will donate it).  Last week at CVS there was a deal that if you bought $25 worth of certain baby products you received $10 in Extra Care Bucks (i.e. store credit).  So I busted out all those $5 OFF Similac coupons and bought 5 of these…

They were on sale for $5 each which meant I met the $25 requirement (and paid nothing but the tax for them).  Then, with my $10 store credit I got some diapers (which were on sale for $9 plus I used a $1.50/off coupon) and treated myself to one of these – all for free.

While I was raised to use coupons and save money whenever possible, I couldn’t not give a shout out to my friend Shelley King.  Last year, she gave me a tutorial of the CVS Extra Care Bucks program and has encouraged me with my couponing and saving.   With Shelley’s help, and the help of SouthernSavers.com I have had fun saving our family money on the things we need (diapers) and want (Honest Tea).

I would have blogged about this deal sooner so you could run out and save too, but we are on VACATION and I’m just now logging on…don’t worry, there are tons of deals going on this week too.

Friday Photo Flashback

I miss Geah (what I call my grandmother) already, so you might hear about her a lot on the blog and you should just be okay with that.

So…I was looking back through photos (mostly events and vacations – I’m going to have to hook up the scanner soon y’all so we can get some real oldies) and I came across this one of my 4 favorite women. This picture is not great of any of them, hopefully they won’t mind.

It was taken at my baby shower and it makes me laugh because Geah was trying to figure out what on earth a “Pee-pee-tee-pee” was. Then the “hooter hider” really threw her for a loop. She couldn’t get over all the new things out there for babies these days. She was so amazed by the new cloth diapers, she treated Rand to a set of Fuzzi Bunz – one thing that we DO use every day.

I’ll never forget the day Wes and I called to tell her the news. Wes describes it as a “banchee warrior holler” noise that she made on the phone, followed by tears (of joy). She noticed the most when my belly grew.  And, when she met Rand for the first time, she said over and over how she just couldn’t believe all of that boy was in me…although this photo below was taken the day before Rand arrived and there is either a 7.5lb baby or a giant basketball under my shirt!

Geah made pregnancy extra fun. She’d sing nursery rhymes and talk to my belly several times a week (she did so even more often after I confessed to not doing it myself). She’d call almost every day to check on me and invite us to lunch or dinner.  And she’d show up at my doorstep with tupperware after tupperware of oranges all sectioned out and ready to eat (my main pregnancy craving…followed by krispy kreme). Some days, I’d pull in the driveway and see a little bag hanging on the doorknob and know she’d been by with more oranges and stacks of coupons. In fact, Harris Teeter must be honoring my grandmother with TRIPLE COUPONS this week.

Tomorrow, all the family arrives for Geah’s funeral.  So I may not get to Harris Teeter this time, and I may not even get another blog post up this weekend.  But I imagine Geah knows, and is thrilled that grocery shoppers are saving and that all of her grandchildren will be together again.
