Harris Teeter Triple Coupons!

Today through Saturday is Triple Coupons at Harris Teeter. Triple Coupons are essential events for couponers! That is when you stock up/build your stock pile. Here is a good article about the importance of Triple Coupons.
I have only been couponing for about 5 weeks - already I have saved over $250!
On my first trip to Harris Teeter today (you can only use 20 coupons per visit) I bought $58 worth of groceries for $24! A 50% savings! All the stuff are items I need (paper towels, toliet paper, kleenex, pickles, Shout, bread, spagetti sauce, peanut butter, evaporated milk, brownies, gravy mix, frozen green beans.) I'll be going at least 1 more time today, one time tomorrow, and probably 2 times Saturday!
Earlier this week, I made $2.00 buying 2 tubes of toothpaste at CVS!
If you have any coupon hints, please share them!
History: I recently took a class that costs $15 from a lady at church who taught me how to coupon. In my first month of couponing I more than paid for that class, the notebook I keep my coupons in, and the 2 Sunday newspapers I get every weekend. I never used to coupon before. I had all sorts of excuses - mainly that couponing took too much time and I am not a very organized person. Well, it does take about 1 - 2 hours a week, which I do while I'm watching TV (clip and file coupons, look on internet coupon websites for that week's deals). Are my 1 - 2 hours a week worth approx. $60 a week? YOU BETCHA!

What Number Were You?

What number voter were you today?

I was number 35.
Yes, I got up early and was in line to vote at 6:20. Our polls opened at 6:30. I was home by 6:55. One of the ladies working the polls said she didn't expect it to be real busy because so many from our precinct voted early.
Tell me what number voter you were (if where you vote the machine doesn't tell you that - just tell me how long you waited in line). I will pick one winner (randomly) and send them a FREE book! (Book will be - A Hero for Dry Creek by Janet Tronstad)
Drawing will be Thursday, November 6th at noon!

Don't listen to the news.
