First day of SDs at HT and a bit of a rant...

I just have to say that I love to share the wealth, that's why I have this blog....BUT, ever since the airing of Extreme Couponing people have come out of the wood works to save some cash. Still, totally fine with me. However, I do have a problem with people working the system. I saw a lady yesterday with her husband and teenage son dividing and dispersing items and handing out VIC cards to each of them. They are obviously in one household, and using 3 different cards (against store policy). I know, you're probably thinking "she's just mad because she probably didn't get some of the items she wanted". YES, you're right! She had 6 packs of Bounty napkins and 6 boxes of the Lance Cracker things that I wanted. Darn it! Rant over, I feel better now:)

When stock is out, get a rain check (RC) because they never expire. Also ask when the delivery trucks get in. Be sure to ask about a specific truck because deliveries come in different days. For instance, grocery items come in on Thursdays at my store but frozen items don't come in until Mondays.

So, here's my score from yesterday (used 19 coupons)...
