A POST FROM THE PAST DOUBLER WEEKS : My Tops Haul start to finish 176 for 31 and another dollar off gas!!!!
I am going to let you in on how I planned all 5 transactions of this Haul !!! First I used my match ups >> CLICK here for FULL MATCH UPS for 8/3-8/9 and for a HUGE LIST of fillers and freebies CLICK HERE Last doubler week I got 176 in groceries over the course of 5 transactions. I also gained another dollar off a gallon of gas so I was at 3.00 off a gallon. Below are pics and how I planned this haul also some Tips on how to organize your transactions so the register is not a nightmare. Keep in mind this is doubler week so my goal is to get every transaction to conme out very close to 20 dollars before my Manufacturer coupons but after store coupons.
Sorry about the smoke in the pic lol First I decide what my number one target item I am going to get is for the week and if need be like with the velveeta skillets put them out in 4 coupon stacks I only will do 5 transactions usually so I start there. I couldnt double the little debbie but didnt want transactions to go to far above 20 so i divided the 21 coupons out .
The above transaction I has for 6 little debbie-- 9.00 and 4 skillets so came to 19.00 and I needed to grab another dollar of product that after coupon would be free to get to the 20 min spend for doublers so I hit my filler list and printed a hamburger helper coupon to fill the dollar gap.
the transactions that needed filler are all here with the before totals and including my main goals this one I filled with more freebies
The above transaction had no 1.00 coupons for doublers its just 6 pop tarts so I added the Motts juice and fast fixin nuggets that are buy 2 get 3 free along with 4 doublers
Doublers cut just about ready to get organized
I then take all 5 transactions seperately and write what coupons they contain on sep envelopes and put just that transaction of coupons into the envelope it goes in these are then tucked away till I get to the register. I make a master list from the envelopes as shown below to shop with. If I check out at a regular register I pull out my envelopes and start with one put down a bar in front place that transactions stuff on the belt then place another bar behind it and start the next envelopes transaction being put onto the belt. If I am at a self check I will ask the cashier to watch my cart or have her call for someone to get me an extra cart. I then grab the first envelope and ring up that transaction use my coupons then place the bags when I am done into the new empty cart. I then grab the second envelope and do that transaction when I am done I ask for them to have someone get the now empty cart or I will take it to the front myself .
Below are the 2 pics of my transactions I paid 31 dollars for 176 in groceries and got another dollar off a gallon!!!
