Harris Teeter Trip Today: Spent $28.03, Saved $87.92!!

I am so excited about how much we saved at HT today.  HERE is the post I wrote about the things I planned on buying.  I wasn't able to get the Crisco Olive Oil, Lawry's Seasoning salt, or the Ritz Crackerfuls because they were sold out.  I got rainchecks for these items, though.  I love Harris Teeter's rainchecks because they never expire!   I also wasn't able to get the Gillette body wash at this particular store.  I will have to check a different store.  Here is what I purchased for only $28.03 (and my whipped topping rang up for $1.39 instead of $.99, so I should have saved even more):

3 Hellmanns
3 Cinnamon Burst Cheerios
1 International Delight Coffee Creamer
1 box Finish Dishwashing detergent
2 1/2 dozen eggs
3 bags Steamfresh Corn
3 boxes Green Giant corn
2 bags Sister Schubert's rolls
1 package (2 tins) Sister Schubert's rolls
4 pounds Dixie Crystals sugar
2 16oz Breakstones Sour Cream
1 Kraft Singles cheese
1 box Betty Crocker cake mix
1 tub Betty Crocker Whipped frosting
2 boxes Wheat Thin Stix
1 tub Whipped topping
1 box Granola bars
1 graham cracker crust for pie
1 condensed milk
1 box Hefty gallon size bags
1 box Hefty quart size bags
1 jar Claussen pickles
1 bottle Propel water

Writing to Maufacturers for Coupons: Writing to 5 Today! Join me?

A good way to get coupons is to write to the manufacturer of your favorite products.  Tell them how much you love their product.  If you family has a favorite flavor or type of their product, let them know.  Don't be afraid to ask for a coupon, especially if you don't see many coupons from the particular manufacturer.  Want to see the other great ways to get coupons?  Read my Post about it HERE.  I am writing to 5 manufacturers today in hopes of receiving some coupons.  Want to join me?

1. Chiquita Bananas:  Produce coupons are hard to find.  I got the idea to write them from TLC's Extreme Couponing Show. 

2. Beech Nut Baby Food:  Our baby loves their baby food and they don't put coupons out that often. 

3. Hunter Farms Milk and Sherbert:  I emailed Karin and told them how much our family enjoys their milk and especially their Raspberry sherbert. 

4. Breyers: We love their Natural vanilla Ice Cream!  No other brand can compare!  My daughter also loves their new product, YoCrunch Parfaits! 

5. Daisy Sour Cream: We love their sour cream, but I haven't seen any coupons for it lately.

I will post an update when I receive anything from these manufacturers.  Let me know who you are writing to for coupons!
